We wanted great ingredients to make great food, and the grocery store ingredients just weren't cutting it. We were frustrated with a slim, old selection of mushrooms at the grocery store, and flavorless, "how-the-heck-was-this-raised?" chicken.
That's why we started Honeymoon Farm.
So, we began bringing a wide variety of fresh mushrooms from Gary's family's farms right to the farmers market, providing the freshest and widest variety right to happy home chefs like you. In 2020, we decided that it wasn't just mushrooms we wanted to cook with, we wanted to raise our own full-flavored chicken. We began our journey raising pasture-raised chicken, and have added country chicken (heritage breed), Thanksgiving turkey, and quail for the most delicious variety to stock your freezer.
Normally, the chicken (and turkey) you find in the grocery store are raised indoors in densely populated chicken houses their whole lives. This same kind of chicken, as it turns out, also does great on pasture, where they have 24/7 access to grass, bugs, dirt, and sunshine (or rain!). We chose to raise all of our birds on pasture, including both the production breed and heritage breed of chicken, and heritage breeds of turkey, prized for their flavor, and slow grown on pasture to enhance their taste and texture.
We want to invite you to cook great food: to cook with incredible flavor. We know that you're here because you value quality, flavorful, local ingredients, and that's why we're passionate about inviting you into our story.
We can't wait to grow amazing food for you.
We want to be your farmers - your source for the most delicious ingredients.
