Farmer's Markets   We attend local Farmer's Markets so our customers have closer pickup locations.  We sell vegetables that we grow here on our farm - so you will always be buying local, in-season organic products from our booth.  Look for the Good Earth Organic Farm banner.

We encourage you to sign up for our email notification list or join our Facebook page. We will keep you updated with our product list and the markets we are attending as well as pre order options.

 

Currently we sell our farm goods at the Coppell Farmers Market,the  Dallas Farmers Market, the McKinney Farmers Market @ Chestnut Square and the White Rock Local Market.

 FYI - Not all produce at farmer's markets is local or organic !   The White Rock Local Market is the only farmers market requiring that vendors grow (locally) 100% of what they sell, being organic is optional.  Kudos to this truly local market !

*weather, insects and other acts beyond our control can keep us from a market !  We grow all our own produce, eggs and lamb, so if we don't have it, we won't be at the market! Growing organically and working with nature does limit us at times, but we know that's what our customers expect.  Thank you farm supporters !

 Boomerang and hens

 Boomerang, a rescue mule and our flock.  Supporting our farm supports open space, carbon sequestration, wildlife habitat, no pesticide use, rescued equine and felines, happy hens, small suppliers and much more. 

 

If you are one of the few that gets out of bed on Saturday mornings to venture out to the market, we thank you.

We appreciate the time you take to be a farm supporter !

 

 Egg Rainbow

We incur the added expense of raising heritage breeds of hens for eggs.  These varities are not used by factory farms.  Only small farmers keep them going !  For more information about endangered breeds visit The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. 

 

The more you shop with real farmers, the more you find out how your choices are limited by supermarkets and produce dealers.  Keep your friends close and your farmer closer !  Go local, small and organic.

What Exactly Is Local Food?

Talk of local food is everywhere. But what does it mean? How local is local? Local is shorthand for an idea that doesn't have a firm definition. Unlike organic standards, which entail specific legal definitions, inspection processes, and labels, local means different things to different people, depending on where they live, how long their growing season is, and what products they are looking for. Practically speaking, local food production can be thought of in concentric circles that start with growing food at home. The next ring out might be food grown in our immediate community - then state, region, and country. For some parts of the year or for some products that thrive in the local climate, it may be possible to buy closer to home. At other times, or for less common products, an expanded reach may be required. People who value local as their primary food criterion are sometimes referred to as locavores. The term "locavore" was coined by Jessica Prentice from the San Francisco Bay Area for World Environment Day 2005 to describe and promote the practice of eating a diet consisting of food harvested from within an area most commonly bound by a 100 mile radius. With such excitement and momentum building in the local food movement, the New Oxford American Dictionary chose locavore as its word of the year in 2007. One easy way to start buying local is to choose one product to focus on. Vegetables are often a good place to start. Produce also offers a good introduction to eating seasonally?an excellent way to learn about local agriculture. Then, try seeking out sources for local meat or dairy. While local is certainly a flexible term, the basic concept is simple: local foods are produced as close to home as possible. Buying local supports a more sustainable food system because true sustainability goes beyond the methods used in food production to include every step that brings food from farm to plate.

 

 

 

 

Local vs. Sustainable 

Sustainable agriculture involves food production methods that are healthy, do not harm the environment, respect workers, are humane to animals, provide fair wages to farmers, and support farming communities. Sustainability includes buying food as locally as possible. Buying local food does not guarantee that it is sustainably produced. Pesticides, chemical fertilizers, factory farming, hormone use, and non-therapeutic use of antibiotics can all be involved in local food production, so it's important to make sure that the local food you buy is from farmers or gardeners using sustainable methods.When considering the sustainability of a product there are a lot of questions to ask, so if a store or producer is advertising that their food was raised locally, take the time to ask a few questions like: "Do you know how these animals were raised?" or "Do you know the name and location of the farm where this product was grown?"
