Smith Meadows Farm Day 2013

Julie and I had the good fortune to re-visit one of our vendors, Smith Meadows Farm this month and were once again impressed and delighted with this terrific family and their farm. We walked to the various areas of the farm where the cows, pigs and chickens are rotated to enrich the soil and to produce a very healthy, sustainable environment for all.

The farm has been in the Pritchard family for eight generations, and there is a beautiful Bed & Breakfast at the center of the farm, for those who want a quiet getaway. They also have a full scale commercial kitchen where fresh pastas, pot pies and sauces are produced for the local farmers markets.

Forrest has recently written a new book on saving the family farm, called Gaining Ground, by going from a conventional farming enterprise to a sustainable model, and we have copies available at both stores. It is a great story and we are very proud to carry Smith Meadows products at The Big Bad Woof.
