Howdy! We’re Jill and Ward Taylor of Taylor Farm.
We are intentionally farming the best food we can; we are a full-circle farm – not overworking the land with any one thing, instead growing various livestock of manageable size and various crops for CSA and farmers market and rotating them regularly. We never use any pesticides, chemical fertilizers, hormones, or genetically modified seeds — anywhere, ever. We even verified that none were used on the land in the three years prior to our ownership.
The livestock lives as nature intended: the cattle feed on grass and receive organic minerals free choice. The pigs are also pastured and supplemented with organic feed. Our laying hens and broilers range freely within electric poultry-fences (to protect them from predators) that are moved recurrently onto fresh pasture to encourage their natural foraging instincts, and they enjoy certified organic, Non-GMO, soy-free feed. Most importantly, the animals are treated with respect and humanely handled.
As for our fruits and vegetables, we follow USDA guidelines for growing them organically. If you’re still curious, you can read them yourself: https://www.ams.usda.gov/sites/default/files/media/Guide%20for%20Organic%20Crop%20Producers_0.pdf
Nearly everything we eat comes off our land, so you can be assured that the food that feeds your family feeds our family. Not everyone wants to be a farmer, but everyone deserves great food. We encourage you to get to know where your food comes from and make healthy living a priority. This is our mission with the food you consume from Taylor Farm. Enjoy!
