"As producers of the food that nourishes you and your family, we understand that we take on an enormous responsibility. It is important to us to only feed our children meat produced without harmful chemicals or hormones raised on a healthy diet of grass out on pasture and no stress. As such, we created Tara Firma Farms to provide the same quality food for you and your family. This is a responsibility that we accept and take very seriously." -Tara & Craig Smith, Founders of Tara Firma Farms
Welcome to Tara Firma Farms!
Tara Firma Farms is a sustainable farm which produces food that connects the community to each other. In 2009, we set off on a mission to create a source of food produced with the highest integrity and to allow the people who consume our food full access to our farm. From the inception we have offered FREE weekend tours, providing education to the public. This allows the community to learn where their food comes from, how they can be accountable in the process, choosing between conventional, organic, or local, and knowing all the differences to make educated decisions. By including our customers, it keeps us accountable to produce the highest quality food in the most sustainable and ecologically sound way. Over 8000 adults and children have visited. Inspired by the genius of Joel Salatin, owner of Polyface Farms, we were able to bring this vision and our community together to experience healthy food and the life cycles that support each other and our planet.
Throughout our journey we have learned some disturbing facts about the current industrial food system but many more inspiring solutions that honor the land, animals, and life cycles critical to the planets survival. Through this process we are guided by core values that we believe are critically important to the environment and future of food:
- Provide the animals, plants, and soil a happy, stress-free, healthy lifestyle.
- Grazing our animals in a way that revives grassland to sequester carbon from the atmosphere.
- Allowing our animals access to a plethora of greens thereby transferring valuable nutrition to you.
- Offer an environment where people can comfortably learn about where their food comes from and interact with those processes.
- No chemicals or drugs of any kind in/on land or animals.
