Heritage Farm -- Store is open.....Come on in and out to markets!!!!!!
Hope this email finds you all doing well!
So this week I want to talk a little bit about our feeding practices and farm.
Here of late we have had quite a few inquiries about the volume that we grow and sell, how much we have grown as a business and how do we source and manage our feed supply so I wanted to touch on that here for a bit…..
First and foremost we are still very much a small family run farm. All of us still work hands on day in and out to manage and keep our farm running. We have had to expand into a few more locations than we have been in the past but we are basically still producing product at roughly the same level we were 3 or 4 years ago when we reached our peak levels for the land we own and manage. Our ability to reach our sales goals in 2 or 3 markets has become more and more difficult over the last few seasons due to the opening of quite a few community markets so we have had to go out into more locations to keep the same level of sales. We're getting bigger only in the sense of locations to buy. Rest assured we are still here day in and day out providing hands on management and care for all of the products we raise and bring to market.
As to the feed sourcing we are using only certified naturally grown approved feeds and amendments. These standards parallel the USDA certified organic program and are USDA compliant. In past seasons we have purchased both local non-soy and non gmo feeds and regional certified organic feeds. We have always made an effort to insure that the feeds we use are the best and cleanest we can get so to further that tradition, we are, once again, partnering up with Coyote Creek feeds to provide our 2017 certified organic feed. They now have a distribution facility that is only 2 hours away so it will make for a GREAT partnership!! If you have any questions about the feed please feel free to e-mail us @ email@example.com
Lastly please know that we will always endeavor to not just solicit your business but to earn it!! We want to be the farmer that you know and be transparent in our practices and products. Please feel free to reach out anytime with questions, compliments or concerns……
That's all for this week…Make sure and check out the facebook page Here to see current photos and tidbits and don't forget to check out the menu below for this weeks ordering!!! We love ya and we need ya!!
