Our cows are born, raised, and finished on our farm where they eat organic forages (grasses) on organic pastures. This buffet of grasses makes a flavorful beef like no other! We never use hormones or feed antibiotics to our cows.

Grass-fed beef is not only safer for the environment, itís healthier for people, too. With lower fat content and a high omega 3 level that matches fish, more omega 3s in your diet reduces heart disease by 50%. Click here to read more about the health benefits of grass-fed meats. Since itís leaner than grain-fed meat, grass-fed meat cooks somewhat differently. Click here for tips on getting the most from grass-fed meats.

Renown for centuries for its sweet flavorful meat, our registered Berkshire Pork (Kurobuta) are born and raised on the farm. We grow all of the food that our animals eat – certified organic corn, vegetables, fruits, and grass – and never added hormones or antibiotics. Our farm raised Kurobuta pork is lean, with shorter muscle fibers and finer marbling. It is deep pink in color, sweet, juicy and delicious.

Legend holds that Oliver Cromwell discovered the Berkshire breed more than 300 years ago while his army was wintering at Reading, the county seat of the shire of Berks in England. Later, the British made a diplomatic gift of Berkshire pigs to Japan, where the meat rivals the reputation of Kobe beef. The oldest pure breed pig in the U.S., Berkshires are now considered a rare breed.

CSA participants subscribe and pay in advance for weekly deliveries throughout the growing season. Starting in late May and continuing into December, we grow and pick your veggies, and deliver them the next day to designated pick-up sites in the Atlanta area. Whatís in the weekly share varies by the season: in the spring, itís cool weather crops such as leafy greens, crisp radishes, beets, onions, garlic, and strawberries; in the heat of the summer, itís fruity vegetables such as corn, cucumbers, peas, peppers, tomatoes, melons, blueberries; in the fall, itís root crops and more hearty greens such as broccoli, butternut squash, kale, turnips, sweet potatoes, apples, collards.

How much subscribers receive can vary a little bit from week to week; weather affects how the plants are growing and how much we can harvest. Generally, a full share keeps a family of two that likes to cook at home in ample vegetables, with a little left over to preserve for the winter and early spring.

The happiest subscribers are those who greet the weekly surprise of whatís in the box with excitement because they like learning about new veggies and eating seasonally, and welcome the opportunity to share cooking ideas with others.

The starting point for our farm-milled corn meal, grits, and polenta are the heirloom varieties of white, yellow, and blue corn that we grown in our certified organic fields. After harvest and hardening off, the entire kernel – germ, hull, and all – is stone ground by hand, using a 1916 Meadows mill.

Hand milling is cooler and gentler to the grains, preserving the corn’s natural enzymes. The resulting product is rich with flavor and more nutritious. Milled corn products have high levels of antioxidants such as carotenoids that rival levels found in spinach, carrots, and tomatoes, and are gluten-free. No preservatives are ever added to extend shelf life.
