What's Fresh?

Since we feature only the freshest produce, our selection changes from week-to-week, season-to-season.

Get Social With Us

We are not a certified organic farm - let's be clear about that. We do our best to limit the use of chemicals on our crops and be smart about treatments when they are necessary to protect the crop from pests. Our goal is to farm sustainably and to treat the land and the animals with respect. We want to farm like our grandparents did, out of love for the land and the job. There is nothing better than the sense of pride that comes from growing healthy food to feed growing families.

Our Food

Our Fruit and Vegetables

We are always trying new things and adding new crops to our list of produce but this year we are focusing on a select list of items so that we can increase volume and continue to deliver excellent quality. For 2016 we will have EARLY tomatoes, blueberries, blackberries, rasberries, peaches and plums. You won't find anything this delicious in the supermarket!

What will you be eating this year?

  • Fresh local steak with peach chutney?
  • Tomato sandwiches from vine ripe local tomatoes?
  • Colorful fruit cups?
  • Savory herbs for enhancing the flavor of your meal?
  • Fried sgreen tomatoes when you need a southern treat?

Our Beef

Our herd is predominantly black angus, including our bull named Tennessee. In 2013 we added a group of saler heifers to optimize the size of our beef naturally. We also have a few other lovely ladies of various breeds that are good beef producers and good mothers.

 

The cows are pastured using rotational grazing techniques to make sure that they always have access to healthy clover and good fescue grasses. In addition they get hay and balage during the winter months and occasionally the herd gets a few buckets of commercial grain to make sure that their diet is well balanced and complete. Being amidst the herd everyday gives us a chance to get to know the cows and be able to detect any illness or injuries quickly.

Beef is sold based on live weight plus processing fees. We deliver the steer to the processor and that is where you will pick up your meat. For 2016, the beef price is $2.35 per pound live weight. Processing fees are approximately $0.48 per pound based on hanging weight. The total price for meat in your freezer is less than $7.00 per pound. A whole beef is approximately 400 pounds of meat! We sell 1/4, half and whole cows for your convenience. By buying local and in bulk, you will save money, time and have delicious meat for your family at every meal.
