Where Good Food Comes From

A Poem by Susan Reid, 2017

I have felt the warm breath of cows, carried the weight of hay and water, Smelled the sweetness of grain and manure.

I have known the oily kinked wool of sheep beneath my hands. and have held eggs, still-warm, stuck with bits of feather and guano.

I have watched lambs, kids and calves come bloody and hard into the world, watched them wobble and suck.

I have raised chicks from bits of fluff fed and watered them, taken their lives and feathers away and, with knife and ice water, prepared them for the freezer.

We recently asked Amy Huyffer of Strafford Organic Creamery to write us a letter of support – describing how Farmers To You has helped her farm thrive. Here is what she had to say about us:

Through Farmers to You, I currently sell a variety of dairy products including organic bottled milk and ice cream from my farm business, Strafford Organic Creamery at Rockbottom Farm.  We rotationally graze a 70-head herd on 600 acres.  We are proud of our land stewardship and the high quality of our dairy products.
