Redbuds Farm and Botanicals
Our friend and hyper local producer, Emma O'Connell has been supplying local Rocheport establishments with their produce for the last 10 years. Redbuds farm, located only 3 miles from our kitchen so when you see the beautiful wildflowers on our tables or enjoy a beefy tomato on a hot August day, know they were probably picked that day. You can find Emma selling her goods(from gourds to homemade jam-and most things in between) most Saturdays on Main Street in Rocheport from 9-12.
Fed From The Farm LLC.
Practicing sustainable Agricultural Practices is this husband and wife duos' passion. David and Mariah manage farms with an advocacy for the land in mind and believe the results are found in the quality of their products. Their "Fed from the Farm" movement is inspired by restoration/regenerative grazing and herd rotation practices. At Meriwether, we use Boatright Farms' eggs in all recipes that call for them and serve them proudly on your breakfast plate. Find David and Mariah's story and how you and your family can be "Fed from the Farm" at www.fedfromthefarm.com.
Located about 30 minutes northwest of Columbia, the 80 acre farm contains pastures, woods, ponds and Prairie Creek. As a small family farm dedicated to creating a sustainable livelihood from the land, we strive to produce excellent cheese while protecting the water quality of our watershed, enhancing our soils with natural fertilizers, and improving biodiversity. To implement these principles, we have taken steps such as feeding our goats with a management-intensive grazing system, heating our home and dairy with hot water from an outdoor wood burning furnace, and using whey, a cheese making by-product, in our fields as fertilizer. www.goatsbeardfarm.com
