About

It's not just about food. It's a way of life.

You are supporting a revolution. You have a powerful choice and an opportunity to directly participate in raising the food you eat. 

Our family started raising grassfed beef over 10 years ago because we saw first-hand how it was healthier, more sustainable and better for the land we cherish. It caught on quick. But it has always been about more than just food; it's a way of life. It's the experience of being part of something vital to our survival--working on the land and with the animals that provide our meat.

We want to share this direct connection. Gathering community through farm-to-fork events, education and outreach and farm stays is our way of sharing what we know: when you take care of your food, your food takes care of you. Animals that are loved and well-managed are healthier, better for the environment and allow us to have important perspective. It is nourishing in so many ways.

At Black Market Farm, we have seen the potential and are ready to answer the call. The response has been outstanding! In hosting several school field trips, families and farm-to-fork dinners in the past year, it's become clear that we need a large, indoor, flexible gathering place for community. We will leverage the community support and our experience to include a commercial kitchen and studio, where we can be equipped to host field trips, kids' camps, family retreats, farm-to-fork events and farm stays.

Risks and challenges

Farming is not for the faint of heart. We choose a community supported agriculture (CSA) model to help divert the risk that is inherent with agriculture and raising animals. Because our business is based on up-front participation and investment, our members sign contracts acknowledging the risks associated. Our members are AWESOME and extremely supportive. If our hens aren't laying or the heritage birds we raised aren't gaining fast enough to harvest, we have strong relationships with our members and are constantly communicating.

There are few risks associated with finishing the Farmhouse. Matt is a former contractor, so labor and know-how is already included. Should materials or expenses run higher than projected, we will use the resources available and focus on the most important features of the space. And then host farm dinners to finish raising funds!
