Our store was started 35 years ago by people who wanted whole grains and local produce–foods that were hard to find in conventional grocery stores at the time.

Conventional homeowners think nonthig about imposing their restrictions on those of us who want to have pets with perks (livestock that produce eggs, honey, fiber for textile arts, etc) but do not consider how their un-sustainable life style effects me. Their annual lawn service sprays poison on their grass that washes into my yard at the next rain. They worry about my chicken's noise, potential smell and manure, but think nonthig of their dog barking, peeing on my flower garden (even when being walked on a leash) or their indoor/outdoor cat killing the wild birds I feed or using my flowerbed as a litterbox.The truth is, they want to make me be like them living a life in front of the TV, no connection with the land except looking at it from inside, eating food that comes from thousands of miles away, using hundreds of gallons of gas to get here, full of chemical additives and pesticides. While I don't want to force anything on anyone, I just want to be allowed to live as I choose, with a connection to nature and the seasons, aware of what goes into my food, and where it came from.If the Urban Farm movement became more popular, the acreage in the city and suburbs are capable of producing millions of pounds of clean, local, sustainably produced food. The crowds that flood the Farmer's Markets each weekend show that interest is increasing.
