They believe that these choices provide the health-minded, socially-conscious consumer a sustainable means to a good end.
About the Produce
Amazing Grace cultivates over 40 categories of produce and multiple varieties within those categories, most of which are distributed through their Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. The most popular types of produce are also grown on a larger scale for farmers markets, grocery stores such as Basics, and recently, our local school systems! Their CSA runs from the last week in May through the first week in October. For more information, click here: CSA brochure.
About the Beef
Amazing Grace Family F.A.R.M.'s beef cattle are raised in pastures and are never kept in confinement. Supplemental feed (mainly a mix of alfalfa, grasses, and clover) is grown right at the farm so they know exactly what it contains, and antibiotics are used only when absolutely necessary. All beef is processed at a USDA inspected butcher, and is sold frozen at Basics to maintain the highest quality. Find their ground beef, steaks, roasts, stew meat and beef soup bones in aisle 10!
