That brings us to the subject of on-farm sales and our new procedures at farmers markets. We no longer make displays of beautiful bounty but take pre orders. We'll need you to shop our website and we'll harvest and pack what you select for our next available pick up window Saturdays at Richland Park and Wednesdays on farm.
Lost Weekend Farms, what began as a snarky reference to how we typically spend our spare time, is a collection of fields and a small orchard and vineyard nestled in Neely's Bend, just north east of Nashville. As we've always enjoyed being connected to tradition and heritage by growing, picking and preserving, our semi-urban farm has become our outlet for exploring seasonal eating, biodiversity, politics, and environmental health.
WE ARE A CERTIFIED NATURALLY GROWN FARM
CNG farmers don’t use any synthetic herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms. CNG livestock are raised mostly on pasture and with space for freedom of movement. Feed must be grown without synthetic inputs or genetically modified seeds. There is, of course, much more to it than that. One of our favorite aspects of the program is the transparency of the certification process. The records of each farm's certification documents are available for public review on the cngfarming.org website. There is peer review to promote community and information exchange between farms. Each year each participating farm is peer inspected often by a fellow CNG or Organic farmer. For more info on the program head over to http://www.cngfarming.org/
