Desert Farms

Desert Farms

“At Desert Farms, our mission is to promote camel milk as nature’s most wholesome dairy beverage, so you can get over the hum when you need, naturally.” 

Our commitment to local farming communities has created a handful of family farms across America. From the rolling hills of Pennsylvania to the sunny coast of California our commitment remains stronger than ever. After all, great camel milk starts with great local farmers and a healthy herd. All camels are pasture-raised, meaning that they are allowed to eat all the different natural flora and fauna in the pastures, a natural diet their bodies can easily handle – and one that keeps them happy and healthy.

When you choose Desert Farms as your source of camel milk, you can feel great knowing you’re supporting local agriculture across the country, along with the proud heritage of American family farmers. We celebrate our family farmers for taking on the incredible task and risk of putting the world’s healthiest dairy on America’s tables with common sense, hard work, and sheer heart.

Frozen Garden

Dark leafy greens are one of the most nutrient-dense readily available foods and are also the most commonly missing food in modern diets. Green for Life introduced me to the concept of an easier way to consume them in sufficient quantities: the green smoothi

I began drinking green smoothies daily in addition to my regular diet...all so I wouldn't feel so guilty about consuming a pound of bacon a day.

Grassfields Organic Cheese

index_slide_5.png

Grassfields Cheese is a fifth generation, family owened and operated farm in Coopersville, MI. The Meerman family has worked the same land since 1882 with the motivation to produce good food. Today three brothers; Luke Jesse, and Jay, along with their families, work the 250 acre family farm. Jay raises meat animals and Jesse milks a dairy herd that is made up of Holstein, Jersey, and Normandy breeds. Luke owns and oversees the cheese production and sales. Jesse was our original cheese maker but in 2012 he turned the cheese paddle over to Evn Velthouse. Evan came to learn cheese making with his culinary class and stayed. 

Our Cheese is farmstead which means we use only milk from our own cows. We can monitor closely the health of the herd and what they are eating. Our herd is 100% grass-fed, they receive no corn or soy. We are even supplementing their winter feed with sprouted barley seeds. There are no GMOs in our milk. We are certified organic by OEFFA and we are proud to have our dairy be Animal Welfare Approved.

Green Gold Cheeses

cheese1.jpg

Green Gold Cheeses is a small family-oriented, state inspected facility where we work hard to make delicious, healthy cheeses for you to enjoy.

We hope our name will speak for itself. Healthy cows eating high quality green forages will produce a superior golden cheese.

This small herd of 100% grass-fed Jerseys is happy, healthy, and much less prone to disease because of their good diet and the individual attention they receive. They all have personal names like Greta, Elsie, and Bertha. During the winter months they are privileged to still be served their daily greens in the form of barley sprouts. These cows have been tested to have the A-2 genes, which makes their rich, creamy milk even more special.

Hartzler Family Dairy

Our Philosophy

When Harold Hartzler made the decision in 1964, over thirty years ago, to stop using chemical pesticides, herbicides, and artificial growth hormones on the familyfarm it was not a marketing decision. He did it because he had witnessed the harmful effect of chemical run-off on a neighboring farm after a storm. If the chemicals used in farming were this harmful to the fields, and those chemicals infiltrated the food chain, then they must also be harmful to humans, he reasoned. It was then that Harold Hartzler set down a basic philosophy that to this day guides the family business. He decided to farm in the most natural way possible, depending on earthworms, air, water and sunshine to nourish the soil. His philosophy is summed up in three simple words:

“As Nature Intended.”

Dad Hartzler’s philosophy continues to guide the family business. Hartzler milk is processed in the most minimal way possible that is allowable. And, as it turns out, advances in medical technology demonstrate that food in its natural state is far healthier than highly processed foods, including milk.

The entire Hartzler family promises to remain true to Dad Hartzler’s philosophy. And we promise to continue to bring you the healthiest, most natural, and tastiest milk possible!

Hidden Pond Farm

We are Andy and Beverly McDowell and we run a small farm-based new enterprise in Wayne County, Indiana. In a quest to solve certain health problems, particularly digestive, we started making raw fermented cultured vegetables and beverages, based on Sally Fallon’s book Nourishing Traditions. Our interest in finding real answers to health problems, coupled with a passion for organic gardening, spawned the Hidden Pond Farm enterprise. 

We raise as many of our organically grown ingredients as we can manage.  We utilize traditional organic buildup practices. But we also employ the broad mineral balance, trace mineral addition and other high brix methods. The result is organically rich, high brix, mineral-balanced food with world-class health attributes.

Our aim is to provide local folks with healthy, tradition-crafted raw lacto-fermented Sauerkrauts, KimChi, Kvass, and Kombucha.  Our state-certified facility located on our farm is perhaps the only one dedicated solely to making ferments in the state of Indiana.  We are able to make our products on site in temperature-controlled chambers for more consistent and high quality products.

Organic Valley Cooperative

Organic Valley is a cooperative of organic dairy farmers that are located throughout the Midwestern United States. We are pleased to offer their organic butter and cheese products. 

The Organic Valley Story:

Our story starts back in January of 1988—a time when family farms were on the brink of extinction. We were a handful of farmers in Southwestern Wisconsin’s coulee region and we shared a love of the land. We also shared the belief that a new, sustainable approach to agriculture could help family farms and rural communities survive. With a small poster inviting area farmers to join our current CEIEIO, George Siemon, for an informational meeting regarding the formation of the Coulee Region Organic Produce Pool (CROPP) at the county courthouse, we created enough momentum to carry us to this day.

Folks back then, just like you today, were concerned with food quality and environmental issues. They were looking for more natural, nutritious food—food grown without synthetic and potentially harmful pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. We began by growing organic vegetables, and soon added organic dairy products. When we found the demand we anticipated was real, we created the Organic Valley brand name and expanded our product line.

Rooibee Red Tea

Though others have tried, there is only one place in the world to grow rooibos: the Western Cape of South Africa. Pronounced roy-bos in their native Afrikaans language, rooibos translates to “red bush.” This is the secret to what the rest of the world calls “red tea.” It is not a tea in the standard definition, but rather a legume similar to peas, beans and lentils. Rooibos contains endless health benefits that South African families have revered for generations. They not only take advantage by drinking rooibos, but also put it in baby bottles to calm their colicky children or take baths in it to sooth their skin from eczema.

Rooibos naturally contains no caffeine and unlike black or green tea has very little tannins, or bitter qualities. It is high in two powerful antioxidants aspalathin and nothofagin. Never heard of them before? Well get to know the names because they help fight against heart disease, inflammation, high blood pressure and cholesterol. Its unique minerals include magnesium, calcium, manganese, zinc and iron that benefit the nervous and skeletal systems and help with digestion, metabolism and circulation. With all those powerful properties, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be one of the first to offer the benefits here in America already bottled and ready-to-drink. In true Rooibee Red Tea style, we added extra goodness including a full-serving of vitamin C and certifying it USDA organic.

Since it first launched at farmers markets in Louisville, Kentucky in 2009, Rooibee Red Tea has become a staple among individuals and families across the country paying attention to what they put in their bodies. This includes our Chief Tea Officer Heather Howell who keeps her family of four fueled with a pantry and fridge stocked with organic, low-sugar options her husband and children can grab on the go just like our teas. We hope you’ll take advantage, enjoy the refreshing flavor and join the movement! #InspireWellbeing

Smoking Goose Meatery produces handcrafted, flavor-packed protein treats.

From our Indianapolis meat locker, we make both traditional and unique carnivorous concoctions including slow cured and smoked meats, salami and fresh sausages.

We only cure and smoke the meat from healthy animals raised on independent Indiana farms by people who care as much about the well-being of the animals and the land as they do their own families.

By taking the time to use traditional methods like seam butchering each animal, hand tying every piece, and curing without additional compound nitrates, we tend to every product with the same mindset: respect nature, honor tradition, and get hungry.

Sunny Meadows Cheese

Our farm produces raw milk cheese from grass-fed Jersey Cow. We rotationally graze our cows on 60 acres of pasture with grass and clover.

We practice environmentally friendly biodynamic farming methods. Chemical fertilizers, synthetic hormones or toxic pesticides are never used on our farm. Our Jersey cows are never force-fed to produce more milk than they were designed to produce. This is one reason our Sunny Meadows Cheese is so delicious and nutritious.

Many natural nutrients in milk are altered or destroyed when temperatures exceed 110 degrees Fahrenheit. We do not pasteurize our milk and our cheesemaking recipe temperatures do not exceed 103 degrees. All of our cheeses meet the Federal Law Specifications because none of our cheeses leave the curing rooms until they are aged a minimum of 60 days.

Welcome to Uncured Natural Meats, where wild salmon is king and fishing in stormy, cold, northern waters with our family is our life. Thousands of Alaskan fishermen and families live and work out of Alaska’s small coastal villages and towns. We, the Roths, are one of those families.

Each summer when Alaska’s abundant and sustainable salmon runs arrive we, (Steve and Jenny) and our children, fish on the west side of Kodiak Island. We work together on our seine boat to bring you the highest quality sockeye, coho and pink salmon found on earth.

There are no cities dumping industrial pollutants into these waters! Alaska has more coastline than all the rest of the United States put together and about the same number of people live in our entire state as in the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin! THIS IS WILD SALMON IN PRISTINE WILDERNESS WATERS!
