What Tara Firma Farms Is All About
· Tara Firma Farms is a family owned beyond organic farm in Petaluma, California, founded by Tara and Craig Smith in 2009. Working in harmony with land and animals, we offer our community real food that balances the needs of our environment with the needs of our nutrition. Our goals are to educate the community regarding REAL food, provide that food and build a training center for future farmers.
· All of the animals are raised on pasture and managed in a holistic way. This makes all the difference. Animals raised on pasture, free from stress and antibiotics, provide us with the healthy meat we need. Unlike most meat available in stores, our meat is loaded with Omega 3’s, CLA’s and other nutrients that keep us healthy, naturally. We raise pigs, cattle, and chicken for meat and eggs. We never use herbicides, pesticides, insecticides, or any other “cides”. In other words, our animals don’t do drugs!
· Our garden is managed using bio-intensive gardening. We compost, integrate pollinator attractor plants in the garden, and grow beautiful heirloom varieties. We even have a few bee boxes in the garden too! The demand for fresh seasonal produce has been more than we can meet with our garden, so we include produce from diverse organic farms just down the road from us including County Line Harvest, Marin Roots, First Light, and Allstar Organics.
· On that note, we support the local farms around us by acting as a hub where they can sell their goods. We include honey from Marshall’s Farm, olive oil and olives from McEvoy Ranch, yogurt and butter from Straus Family Creamery, raw goat cheese from Redhill Goat Farm, and granola, gluten free bread, muffins, fruit, and preserves from various local vendors. You can add any and all of these products to your share of veggies or meat, some rarely go into a grocery store after shopping with us!
· CSA: Community Supported Agriculture. It’s like a subscription to the farm. Our CSA members sign up for either a meat share or veggie share, or both if they choose. The meat comes as an assortment of cuts of beef, pork and chicken, which we will choose for you and switch it up each time, allowing you to try a range of our delicious meats. The veggie shares are a mix of the freshest, seasonal crops available. Usually they include some roots, cookable greens, perhaps an herb, and some table greens as well. What you end up getting is an order that is full in quantity and high quality food!
