Where Does Your Food Come From?

“Where tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers therefore are the founders of human civilization” – Daniel Webster

Where does your food come from? Who grows it? How is it made? These are a lot of questions we might be asking ourselves nowadays with growing concerns over increasing chemicals in our environment and food system.

Luckily at Big Muddy Urban Farm we’re committed to educating our customers about their food system and the importance that sustainable agriculture has on our planet. All of our plots are checked for lead and available nutrients to ensure high quality, healthy veggies for you, and we’re implementing methods known to increase vegetable nutrients by 1-3%.

A great example of our relationship with our members is our CSA program. This has the benefit of consumers getting to know who exactly is producing their food, and gives the farmers the benefit of getting to know their customers! We’re a group of young passionate people and look forward to seeing everyone in the upcoming growing season no matter if you’re a customer or just a friendly face.

What’s in your Share?

Seasonal

At Big Muddy Urban Farm we believe in the rhythmic pattern of nature and that involves what is and isn’t available during certain parts of the year. Human beings are meant to eat a variety of different plants and the beautiful planet that we’re on provides that. We hope to show you the beauty each season has to offer with over 40 different varieties of fresh vegetables!

Nutrient Dense

We’re working diligently to ensure you a high quality product, and we really want to say that our produce is not only different, but better then what you find at your local grocery store. Green beans, for example, lose almost all of their Vitamin C in just a week! This is one of the reasons why we want to make sure you get the freshest veggies possible.

Sustainability

At BMUF we’re always thinking ahead. Not only are we thinking about next years residents, but we’re also working towards creating a sustainable environment for the next seven generations. We care about our soils health, and to quote Franklin D. Roosevelt, “a nation that destroys its soil destroys itself.”
