At RJR 100 Acre Farm we rely on direct to consumer sales through the farmer's market, sales from the farm gate and our CSA.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Consumers are directly connected to the producer to strengthen local food production systems. A CSA is a relationship of mutual support and commitment between local farmers and community members. They both share the risk and the bounty, members receive a weekly share of the harvest during the local growing season, but also understand that if there is crop failure or poor weather, the size and contents of the share will fluctuate.
RJR 100 Acre Farm produce is grown without pesticides. We grow our produce bio-logically. We protect our soil health, biodiversity, the health of our produce and our consumers. We consider the whole farm's ecosystem in our decisions from the soil, to the pests, to the helpful insects, to the birds, weeds, and the water system.
At RJR 100 Acre Farm, seed sovereignty is important to us. We make a point to avoid genetically modified or engineered (GMO/GE) foods, and try to use heritage varieties as much as possible.
If you are thirsting for contact with Mother Earth and would like to spend a few hours roaming the quiet solitude of the farm, we welcome helpers as well. Don't be shy, bring your grubby clothes and pitch right in. There is always weeding and watering that can be done. A day in the garden is a great way to get connected to where your food is produced, have fun, and teach kids about nature and the interrelationships between the land, animals, plants and people.
The RJR 100 Acre Farm includes Rita and James, daughter Marylynn, Sadie the dog, sustainable grass-fed beef cattle, Berkshire hogs, free range laying hens, a gander and his geese, and some ducks.
