“We are a Certified Naturally Grown farm that grows livestock, cut flowers, specialty vegetables, eggs, and value added products.“

Here at Sunflower Savannah, we believe in the continuity of life. Everything serves a purpose and contributes to the well-being of the farm. The sheep eat the grass that choke our fields. Without this, fuel would be burned in our tractor to cut the grass. In return they provide compost to grow our gardens. The garden provides plant life to support the Market, the animals and ourselves. Our dogs guard the animals or the house and while the cats bring us comfort, they are also the destroyers of vermin that ruin the grain and seeds for the garden. The chickens, ducks, and geese eat the insects that eat the plants that feed them and ourselves. In turn they provide eggs to eat and compost to feed the garden…and this is the House that Sam and Bill have built.

We are a Slow Food Farm that raises Slow Food Ark of Taste items like Cayuga ducks, fruit trees, and garlic ramps. We also grow over 40 varieties of heirloom tomatoes – these are all thanks in part to grants from Slow Food.
