You Are What You Eat
If you’ve met me even once you’ve probably had the pleasure of hearing me pepper this phrase in our conversation. I admit that I have a tendency to wax poetic on this topic but it’s been a little while since I’ve covered it in some kind of depth so I figured that now would be […]
The Right Way, Not the Fast Way
As farmers who are committed to raising livestock using certified organic practices and regenerative agriculture, we know that this work doesn’t always come easy. Everything we do is to better the land and our livestock are integral to this in their ability to replenish the soil naturally through rotational grazing. As they are rotated from […]
Our Better for the Planet Beef
“Leave the world better than you found it” is a phrase I’m no stranger to, especially through my exploration and adoption of organic farming over the years. When I take visitors to the farm on a tour, our first stop is an empty field. I explain to them that this is our “solar powered hamburger […]

How to Extend Your Local Eating Season
Now that we have an online store, a Fall CSA Farm Share and a Winter CSA Farm Share, we take the responsibility of producing food year-round more seriously. Here as the days get shorter, growing into the colder months is on our minds.
Eat Like Your Farmer – Fall 2021 Edition
For all the work involved, being a farmer does have its perks, and eating wholesome, organic foods through winter is one of them. The Elmwood Stock Farm Fall CSA Farm Share enables you to eat like your farmer, too.
