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
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 meds.
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.
