About the Farms

A Way of Life Farm is located in Sunshine on the northeastern side of Rutherford County.  Jamie and Sara Jane Davis raise vegetables, fruit, pigs, and chickens using permaculture and biointensive growing techniques.  We focus on building healthy soil with a diversity of crops and beneficial animal impact.  We believe that building a local food system, created by conscientious growers and eaters, will yield healthy people, a healthy economy, and healthy ecology. www.awayoflifefarm.com

Red Dirt Ranch is located in beautiful Ellenboro, NC.  Aaron, Holly and Maple May Cookson are working towards self sufficiency and improving our local food system.  The cornerstone of our operation is pasture raised poultry. We are focused on sustainable agriculture and upholding local food traditions. We hope to reconnect community and people through food.
C-Saw Hill Farm is owned by Brandon, Lisa, and Cecelia Higgins. It is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in beautiful Rutherford County. We are extremely concerned with the safety of commercialized food supplies. We feel that local markets and grass fed and pasture raised animals are the key to making our food system safer and greener. This is why we started C-Saw Hill Farm. We raise meat that is  antibiotic, and added hormone free. We buy feed from our local feed mill calves (that perform well on pasture) from local farmers, and use a local processor.  We want our money to stay Local just like Your Food.  www.c-sawhill.com
