Hunter Farms is a family owned and certified organic farm offering predominantly blueberries, as well as vegetables, herbs, natural soap, and flowers. By becoming certified organic, Hunter Farms committed to third-party inspection and regulation to assure customers of the safety and quality of the crops grown. Over the years, Richard Hunter developed systems to control pests and disease, as well as build healthy soils, without using synthetic chemical inputs that harm the earth and its inhabitants.
Our mission is to "Keep it Natural." We strive to raise cage-free brown eggs, pastured poultry, all-natural pork, and grass finished beef. Animal welfare is the utmost goal of the farm. Our livestock are proudly raised under the "Animal Welfare Approved" standards.
Thank you for the opportunity to share my idea with you!
As an entrepreneur and budding businessman, I'm hoping to combine my passions and strengths by starting a business that will make prepared meals (breakfasts, sack lunches, entrees and sides for dinner) that customers can take home and eat with their family (or in the case of breakfast/lunch perhaps take to work!) The large portion of each meal would be locally sourced and bent towards the healthy eater.
Currently operating as a small, urban farm, we are growing on 1/3 acre of hillside. We have additional land that will be prepare for future planting. We have one small high tunnel and are installing a 30 x 36 tunnel in the fall of 2013.
The Local Roots Community Processing Kitchen is a shared use facility for food entrepreneurs and food producers to process and store product to add value, increase the market, and deliver local food year round.
HooftyMatch is an online marketplace for locally produced meats. We aggregate and disseminate data about the local supply and demand of meat products. Our initial product focuses on the Northeast Ohio region; however, we plan to expand nationally.
We are expanding and emphasizing our already existing local food offerings. We have been in business over 30 years and have a great customer base. We are looking for local, organic produce growers or distributors and a source for local, fresh sandwiches or prepared deli foods for our location. This can provide a great opportunity for locals to expose their products to a large visitor base.
Walnut Grove/Green Gables Farms is committed to sustainable agriculture and the promotion of local foods. We provide education, referrals, and always, plenty of Ohio farm raised crops/vegetables/fruits/meats/etc. "The Farmer's Basket" CSA is a critical part of our business, as is participation in the Tuscarawas County Family Farm Market.
