Founded in 2009 by two sisters, Rebecca and Sarah Kidwell, Farmyard stands for the principles of self-reliant food production. They recognized that the current methodology of conventional commercial agriculture toward pesticide usage, genetically modified foods¸ and ‘food miles’, was a growing concern to themselves and their surrounding community. They knew that educated consumers were more frequently asking, “Where and how was this grown?” and “What is the time from farm to market?” In order to feed their two families, they expanded Rebecca’s existing backyard organic produce garden to utilize her front yard. The excitement expressed by the surrounding neighbors and local community members passing by planted the seed for the mission of Farmyard.
Our philosophy is simple. Grow locally. Produce organically. Eat well.
