Awesome Farm!

We are very excited that KayCee Wimbish and Owen O’Connor, who have worked with Hearty Roots for that past couple of seasons, are launching their own livestock farm this season!

Awesome Farm is renting land adjacent to Hearty Roots and raising chickens (for eggs and meat), lambs and turkeys this season– and maybe more in the future. This season, Hearty Roots hopes to offer our Farm Share members in Tivoli and Woodstock some of Awesome Farm’s bounty– however, there will probably not be enough to offer to Brooklyn members until 2009.

We’re extremely excited to have animals more integrated into the operations at Hearty Roots; chickens to peck at insects, sheep to fertilize fallow fields, not to mention the satisfying feeling of having other friendly creatures sharing the fields with us.
