Kansas City Food Circle Member Grower
“Bring Your Table Closer to the Farm!”
Our farm is powered by huge draft horses. No Tractors. We use NO CHEMICALS, not even those organically approved. We endorse sustainable practices for the health of our animals, our soil, and the planet we all share. ORGANICALLY-GROWN VEGETABLES including many HEIRLOOM VARIETIES. We sell our own HONEY from our bee hives behind the barn. CHICKEN AND DUCK EGGS from our own free-ranging poultry are available by farm purchase. Our new 2013 partnership plan with consumers combines our farm market with a Farm Guild approach which allows Guild participants a choice in the produce they take home. Our Guild celebrates the talents, knowledge, inspiration and support both farmer and consumer bring to the farm. There is no pre-purchase of produce; only a very small fee for Guild services. Produce is purchased from the farm on Guild Market days. Guild families will join us for farm events which may include BONFIRES and HORSE-DRAWN BUGGY AND WAGON RIDES.
A huge cider press, and small farm pond stocked with catfish, and designated canning and food dehydrating equipment are available to the Guild. A monthly newsletter, Guild Gleanings, is included. Details are outlined on our website. An open market day will be available to others as quantities allow. Visitors are welcome. Come see how your food is grown and meet the farmers who grow it.
Exceptions to Producer Pledge
Depending on availability, our market may provide apples and grapes from local growers who endorse the practices set out in the Pledge. Our consumers are always advised regarding the provenance of any produce we sell at our market. Further, to support the efforts of other small farms, our farm may be a delivery site for locally-produced poultry and meats, all raised free-range and free of hormones and antibiotics.
