Farm News: Cooperation is Key to Great Food

May 17, 2016

We work with several other farms to provide everything we offer our members.   We have three different ways to cooperate with these farms.  The fruit share is a multiple farm share, where we purchase wholesale fruit from Browns Berries and Sasha and Jimmy Rhea (strawberries),  Peaches from Bader Farms, Blackberries and blueberries from Ozark Mountain Orchard, and apples from A&A Orchard and Gardeners Orchard .  Some of these folks are using conventional chemical approaches, others are using more sustainable practices.  Either way, we let you know how they were raised, and we seek out the very best fruit we can find.

The cheese and egg shares are single farm shares; our friends Lesley and Barry Millions at Terrell Creek in Fordland make the best goat cheese we’ve ever tasted, and the Boosey family of Blue Heron Farm take raising eggs to the level of an art , including multiple colors of eggs in each dozen and allowing their chickens to pasture freely, leading to really beautiful dark yolks. They bring these shares by and drop them off for you to enjoy.

Our meat shares are provided by independent farmers who deliver their shares directly to their members at our farm;  this includes Providence Farm, who provide a heritage poultry share (think geese, ducks, and Cornish game hens),  Bechard Farm, who provide pasture raised chicken, and  Emmanuel ahd Lydia Schwartz, an amish couple from El Dorado who provide pasture raised Highland beef and pork.   Additionally, there are farms who we source some produce from, like this weeks asparagus in the whole shares, which is provided by Sam and Melinda Miller, of Rocky Valley Farm, or Dan Bigby of Fassnight Creek Farm, who sometimes supplies us with sweet corn,  snap peas, or other goodies.   Altogether, our farm coordinates with as many as a dozen other farms throughout the season to provide you with the best possible produce.   This means that you are not only supporting our farm when you become a member, but you are also helping other farms in the area fulfill their missions as well.  Farming is risky business, but by cooperating and receiving the support of a community of like-minded members such as yourselves, we have created a vibrant, strong network of producers.
Thank you for that.
From Curtis and Dan and Sasha and Jimmy and Crystal and John and Lesley and Barry and James and Wes and Ame and Armand and Teddy and Emmanuel and Lydia and all our families and crews.
