'The Farmers'

Kellam Laur (C) with twin brothers, Luke (L) and Zach Macmillan

More people today now want to know where their food is coming from and how it's grown.  They also want to know if it's pesticide and herbicide free and one of the best ways to ensure food is fresh is ... to buy locally and get to know your farmer.

Seedlings flourish in greenhouse

'Down to Earth Organics, a Community Supported Agriculture Project (CSA), is about to meet all of the criteria as farmers, Luke and Zach Macmillan and Kellam Laur begin their organic produce farming enterprise.

Not only will they grow the freshest organic vegetables but will also deliver them to your door.

The program consists of 'buying shares', which represents a portion of the organic certified land and, therefore, a portion of the produce grown.  Shareholders will be able to share in a piece of land where fresh food is cultivated and reserved for them and, each week, seven to 10 different vegetables can then be picked up or delivered.

One of the keys to real organic produce is to start with organically certified seed and the farmers of Down to Earth Organics grow only from seed that is certified.
