"I come from a long line of farmers. I left my parents farm when I was 17 and never thought I'd one day manage a farm. I couldn't be happier!" Farmer Sue
All our products are raised and grown with the 3 things in mind: Health, Flavor and Authenticity.
Authenticity: For us, genetically modified food is not authentic. There are a lot of folks who disagree with us about this, but we have both worked in the pharmaceutical industry long enough to know that even if something is regulated there are still side effects of even the most meaningful and promising drug. Some of these side effects don't appear for many years. If there is a chance that GMO's will cause side effects through human or livestock consumption or by introducing a strain of herbicide resistant weed (which leads to more herbicides), we clearly do not want it to be our only choice.
Exceeding Organic Standards
Although we are not an organically certified farm, certification is too expensive for a small farm like us, we make every attempt to exceed organic standards. Click on the link below for some examples.
