A farm includes the passion of the farmer’s heart, the interest of the farm’s customers, the biological activity in the soil, the pleasantness of the air about the farm — it’s everything touching, emanating from, and supplying that piece of landscape. A farm is virtually a living organism. ~ Joel Salatin

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US :
To say its been a strange year so far is a bit of an understatement isn’t it? Everything has changed so much and so fast we have really not been able to come up with a “normal” plan for this year so please bear with us in 2020.
We have had some changes around the farm and have been thinking a lot about what we want it to be in the years to come.
Bree’s Mom built her retirement farm house last year and Adams parents just got theirs built and moved in this February. Its so awesome to have them here to be closer to them, provide food for them, help them when they need it and have a few extra hands when we need it too. Having our family together is the most important thing to us and the primary reason we moved to the country and started a farm in the first place.
That being said, that is going to be more of our focus this year. Spending time with our family, and creating a homestead for them to enjoy and thrive on to reward them for all the years of HARD work to raise us and provide for our futures.
For 2020 we WILL be offering our Jams, Spice Mixes, Pesto, Soaps and in a few weeks, HEIRLOOM TOMATOES. We will however, be making more limited appearances so that we can focus more on building our orchard, expanding our berries, modifying the garden layout and building a large raised bed garden plot and being with family more now that they are here. We also both work full time jobs and simply don’t want to overload ourselves beyond what we can manage.
We started Snikta Farm after growing a few tomatoes and some salad mix in a small raised bed garden in our suburban back yard in Lees Summit in 2006 and it quickly morphed into a lifestyle change for us. We lived on frozen boxed meals and fast food and didn’t realize that what we were feeding our bodies was actually damaging them. After years of multiple health issues we found that those ailments were actually caused by our diet and after just a few weeks of eating less fast food and processed foods we started seeing those problems just vanish without the use of any medications.
We decided we wanted to eat as clean as possible and take better care of our bodies and when we grow it ourselves we can guarantee there is NOTHING on our food except good old mother nature. Once we started growing our own food we found that we also have a passion for self sufficiency. We strive to provide a Non-GMO, full circle environment for our farm so we are giving back to our land and not striping it of its natural goodness.
We now have a Homestead in Blairstown Missouri and are loving this adventure. We have spent the last few years learning through trial and plenty of ERRORS, lots of garden magazines, forums and conferences to learn as much as we can while we start our farm. And of course the support from our family, friends and customers we have met over the years has been priceless and we hope to continue to grow and provide everyone with good, healthy, whole foods for years to come.
