If you care what you eat, you’ll want to know what’s in your meat and eggs. Come to the Princeton Public Library Tuesday, March 22 at 6:30 p.m. to meet several local farmers who raise high quality, pastured animals that result in healthy meats. Representatives from following farms will be available to answer your questions about the benefits of homegrown, organic, local products.
- Dave and Robin Jameson from Walnut Acres Farm provide beef, pork, chicken, eggs, and turkey using animals that are allowed to graze with plenty of room for exercise. No hormones, antibiotics, or animal by-products are used.
- Jeremy House of Meadow Haven will be representing the Sexton and House families that own this family run farm. They raise free range chickens on certified organic pastures; certified organic pastured pork, eggs, turkey; and certified organic and natural 100% grass-fed beef.
- Greg and Janet Morse own Trail’s End Organic Farm, a third generation farm that has been certified organic since 1992. Their 100% grass-fed cattle are a Scottish Highland/Aberdeen Angus cross which ensures lean, flavorful beef, that is USDA Certified Organic.
- Tom and Coleen Yucas own Sand Prairie Farms which produces organic corn, soybeans, wheat, oats, and rye on 480 acres and also raises organic pastured broiler chickens. They have been certified organic for over nine years.
