Cedar Lane Farm
When organic food first hit the market, it provided a wholesome, natural, healthier alternative for shoppers who were tired of ultra-processed, mass-produced foods. Sadly, as the organic foods craze took off, companies began lowering the quality of “natural” products in exchange for mass-marketing goods.
At Cedar Lane Farm, we have dedicated ourselves to providing the very best organic foods on the market – minus the nonsense. We avoid the gimmicks larger companies rely on and instead strive to provide 100% REAL organic food. No preservatives. No mass-production. Just simple, natural foods.
Cedar Lane Tours
Thanks to all who came to the Herb Walk at Cedar Lane Farm on Saturday, April 20th. More than 65 people attended (and a couple well-behaved dogs as well). We had a great time.
For those of you who asked, here are the recipes for Rebecca Wood’s wild foods cracker spreads:
Ramp Pesto: in food processor combine equal parts ramps, garlic mustard, chickweed and your favorite fresh greens (spinach, basil, etc.) with a dash of sea salt, pepper, garlic cloves to taste, almonds, cashews or pine nuts, splash of favorite hot sauce or sprinkle of cayenne, olive oil to blend!
United Plant Savers
Cedar Lane Farm and owner Dave Hawkins is a proud member of the United Plant Savers, Stewards of Healing Herbs. As demand for medicinal herbs has grown over the past few years in America, so have issues with shortages and habitat destruction. Through research, education and conservation efforts, United Plant Savers works “to protect native medicinal plants of the United States and Canada and their native habitat while ensuring an abundant renewable supply of medicinal plants for generations to come.” For at-risk species, United Plant Savers has developed a unique “Adopt an Herb” program in which sponsors commit to a five-year== sponsorship of one of the 20 native medicinal plants on their at-risk list.
