Red Rock Ranch
(Cumberland Furnace,TN)Who we are: The Red Rock Ranch (RRR) is a small ridge top farm located just outside of Slayden, TN. We started work on it in 2007 but officially opened for business in spring of 2012. At the RRR, we believe in sustainable agriculture, biodynamic farming methodology and that the best foods are locally grown. We are dedicated to improving the soil using cover crops, companion planting, crop rotations, and the use of only Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) sprays such as BT and Neem oil. We rely on plastic mulch and a good ol' hoe to keep the weeds under control. Where possible we also use our chicken tractor to reduce weed and insect load and add fertilizer to fallow areas of the farm. We compost everything from brown paper bags to banana peels....everything the chickens don't eat anyway. In addition to the agriculture aspect of RRR, we also do Farm and pet sitting, and small acreage tractor for hire work. See our website for more details or to sign up for our monthly newsletter... www.rrrfarmsitter.com What we Grow: Current crops include a large variety of produce from May to November, blueberries and blackberries through the summer, and Free-Range eggs all year. Our produce includes several varieties of the following: (beets, beans, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, corn, eggplant, kale, chard, okra, lettuce peas, peppers, radish, summer and winter squash, Swiss chard, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, and turnips). We are at the Dickson Farmers Market (284 Cowan Road, Dickson, Tennessee) every Wednesday and Saturday 0830-1200 from May till October. We also make egg and produce deliveries to various centralized locations throughout the year. New for 2013 and beyond: The Red Rock Ranch will be adding baked goods, sorghum and popcorn to our product line this year. We have planted a small fruit tree orchard and plan to double our blueberry patch to about 60 plants next year. We are also going to plant a small blackberry and raspberry patch as well as some grapes that should start becoming available in 2015. As we seek to be more self-sustaining and bio diverse, we also plan to expand by adding a few hogs, rabbits and bees in 2013. We welcome visitors to the farm but we ask that you call or email to schedule an appointment.
