Dale Filbrun Morning Sun Organic Farm

(West Alexandria,OH)

We are a family farm in Preble County,Ohio with 6 children. My wife & I were both raised on a dairy farm & have farmed all our lives as our only business. With it getting harder to stay in farming without getting bigger & bigger, we decided to start direct marketing products from our farm. In 1982 we started becoming aware of the detriment of farm chemicals to our health and the environment. We stared using products that were less harsh to the soil and earthworms and soil microbes.(We learned that the soil is alive and to treat it as such.) We continued crop rotation & other proven practices that we had always done. In 1992 we decided it was time, not just to cut back but also cut out, all harsh chemicals & antibiotics (We have never used hormones or GMO's.) and become certified organic.Our livestock was not raised in total confinement prior to certification but we learned more & more about the importance of raising them on grass. We believe in high quality, nutrient dense food & excellent service. We think it's important to learn to know where & how your food is being raised & to know the farmer. We go over & above the organic standards, use some heritage breeds of livestock, raise all of our feed & try to be as self sustaining as we can. Our chicken,turkey,pork,beef,& lamb are sold in cuts at the farm & 6 farmers markets. We also have eggs & some heirloom grain products (all raised on our farm) fresh ground spelt & wheat flour, wheat & spelt berries, & 2 kinds of homemade spelt cereal - Honey Puffed Spelt (very healthy & delicous as a cereal or snack). - Spelt Crunch (a very healthy & delicous cereal, yogurt or ice cream topping, wonderfull breading for baked chicken, apple crisp etc. topping, cheese cake crust, etc.). Thank you for your interest & we look forward to meeting you. Dale & Evelyn Filbrun & family. Morning Sun Farm PS Many thanks to all of our valued customers. Your support of our farm has allowed us to keep our 2 married sons & a married friend in our operation. With my dads help & 2 grandchildren we now have 4 generations here.
