For us, a diet made up entirely of whole food, in season, and in abundance, is normal, not the exception. There are no highly processed foods in our share. No ingredients that you can’t pronounce. No fillers, preservatives, nor artificial colors. We do our best to keep packaging at a minimum, and the plastic we do use is BPA free. Your eye will need to adjust to the lack of splashy colors and persuasive marketing text. What we provide is just good food, custom-grown and harvested for you, delivered straight from the dirt. It is simple, and it is revolutionary.
Essex Farm uses solar and horse-powered equipment whenever practical. Essex Farm considers many factors when determining the appropriate equipment for a job. Among these are a commitment to alternative energy, weather conditions, and soil compaction. When trained personnel are available and conditions are appropriate, draft horses are used to haul firewood, maintain and prepare fields, plant and harvest crops, and collect maple sap from our sugar bush.
