Serendipity Farm & Orchard, LLC

(Platte City,MO)

Serendipity Farm was founded 20 years ago to provide wholesome organic fruits and vegetables for our family. The kids are all grown up and gone now and we're left with an over abundance of apples, peaches, pears, apricots, and plums. We can control how much we plant in the garden but the trees are permanent! Our main vegetable crop is asparagus, but we also have heirloom tomatoes, a variety of bell peppers, fingerling potatoes, peaches and cream sweet corn, beets, okra, spinach, and many varieties of salad greens. In the summer of 2012, we decided to take our produce to the Leavenworth, Kansas farmer's market. We were amazed at our success! We really enjoyed getting to know the customers and they told us how much they appreciated and enjoyed our fruit. We make a sugar free applesauce and apple butter that sell out each week. I bake sugar free, homemade apple pecan muffins made with mostly organic ingredients. They are delicious and so healthy for you, we refer to them as muffin encapsulated health! I always have the recipe ready to share when our customers request it. We also offer a chance to come to the farm when the fruit is ripe for picking once a year and again to help us make apple cider in the fall. We are proud to announce that our chickens are now producing for us. They are on pasture, protected from predators with an electric fence. Their chicken house is on wheels so that we can move them to fresh pasture every two weeks. In addition, they are fed certified organic, soy-free, non-GMO feed. We believe that organic food should be affordable to all people from all walks of life. We can do this because we sell our fruits and veggies to the customer directly, avoiding the profit driven grocery store middlemen. It's hard work but it's also very rewarding at the end of the day knowing that you have a quality product that's not going to harm you or the earth from which it came. April 2014 update: The technical service provider that inspected our farm has informed us that he has submitted our organic plan to the USDA. He was very impressed with our farm and told us that he didn't think we would have a problem becoming certified organic! There's still lots of paperwork to do but we're one step closer to being certified organic!
