As our business card says, we grow "naturally grown stuff" and have been since 1989. We grow organically and became certified organic in the mid-1990's. We abandoned the use of the word organic when the USDA begin oversight of organic certification in 2003. The cost, in both time and money, was too great for a small farm such as ours to absorb. Yearly fees of around $700 and weekly record-keeping of 6-8 hours to satisfy organic certification requirements. We have been more than happy having what we do judged by our customers we see face to face every week at various farmer's markets. We grow vegetables, have laying hens and broilers on pasture, and raise a small batch of 30-40 turkeys on pasture for Thanksgiving. Our birds are not in some big poultry house with limited access to a small "free range" plot. Our birds know what hawks and owls are and have lost flock mates to them and other predators. Our farm uses no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. We raise our livestock on pasture, with respect for the animals, using no hormones or antibiotics.
we offer a weekly e-mail newsletter that lists what we will have available each Saturday at the markets. E-mail us to be added to the list.
