Jan 29, 2014 05:37PM
Florida Fields to Forks farm, Brevard County’s largest Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm, now partners with R and B/Viera Meadows Farm and Crones’ Cradle Conserve Farm. Florida Fields to Forks (FFTF) raises animals and grows produce using organic practices.
“We only partner with a select few of Florida’s most elite, sustainable farms that ranch and farm using the same beyond organic practices that we do,” states owner, Brock Hall. “No antibiotics, growth supplements or hormones are ever used.”
The new partnerships allow FFTF to provide the most nutrient dense, organically grown produce for more than 650 members. Additionally, all produce is grown in the ground, which is important for the soil and the consumer.
“Most consumers do not realize that, in order to preserve all the nutrients in vegetables, they must be chilled as soon as harvested, kept cool, and eaten within two to three days,” according to Jo Robinson, author of Eating On The Wild Side. FFTF and their partners harvest and chill produce and then get it to CSA members the next day.
Florida Fields to Forks also offers grass-fed 100% Angus beef, pasture raised Katahdin lamb, Berkshire and Mongalista pork, Red Ranger and Cornish Cross chickens, wild Florida fish and shrimp, raw cow and goats milk and cheeses, organic raw nuts and raw local honey.
Florida Fields to Forks is a CSA, member only farm, with a one-time $35 fee. There are no ordering requirements. For more information, see FloridaFieldstoForks.com. 1200 Corey Road in Malabar, FloridaFieldstoForks[email protected] or 321-431-7259.
