After moving South from Michigan to the family farm in 1999 we quickly started specialty vegetable and herb production with sales to a few chefs in Atlanta. Over the years we have established the 60-acre property as an Alabama Century/Heritage Farm, expanded chef relationships with some of the top restaurants in Atlanta, grew a terrific relationship with the Atlanta Community Food Bank, developed an award-winning Online Market distributing farm food from 30+ local and regional Southeast producers in a CSA-type format, conducted our Farmer's Table cooking class series at The Cook's Warehouse, diversified our own farm production to include eggs and meat and helped start a new Farmers Market at The Carter Center. Recent farm enterprise additions include hatching our own Chicks for Layers as well as a new Poultry Meat production, the launch of our Moore Farms City Chicks program helping new backyard chicken owners in Atlanta (we placed chicks with a dozen families in 2014!), and our new Farmhouse Supper Club offering a hands-on farm experience and a four-course meal once a month. We are fortunate to have five fine folks helping us do everything we do!
We are a family run and owed farm in rural nothern Idaho. We have been farming at our current location of just two acres for over a decade. Our farm production is mixed vegetables and botanicals for our growing herbal apothecary business. We have kept our production small gardening on just half an acre and half and acres of pasture for animals. My 2 children and I keep up all garden production as my husband teaches and manages an Organic Farm at WSU.
Earthworks Farm a five-acre property owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, leased by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation, and operated as a working educational farm and community garden by the San Gabriel Valley Conservation and Service Corps (SGVCC). The property is located in Whittier Narrows Recreation Area in unincorporated L.A. County, and is surrounded by the densely urban, predominantly low-income city of South El Monte. Earthworks Farm has a part time staff of four, and promotes education in organic farming. This includes monthly workshops in farming for community gardeners, a work training program for disadvantaged youth, an educational outreach farm-to-school program, a Community Supported Agriculture program, and weekly farmers' market stand.
We farm on 1.5 acres of land in the rolling hills of Leelanau County, Michigan. We use organic growing principles which we like to call responsible farming. I will be hiring a part time helper this summer. My mother helps a bit when she is in town and my husband is the muscle!
