Fresh Acres was founded in 2016 when two crazy corporate-types decided to take a leap into farming. Our mission was, and remains, to produce healthy, locally grown food to feed your family, as well as our own. In that vein, we purchase non-GMO seeds from carefully sourced seed companies, and we do not use harsh fertilizers and chemicals – we are not certified organic, but we grow in an organic manner. We also raise animals on the farm, closer to the way God intended them to be raised – they are free-range / pasture-raised, and we supplement with soy-free, transitional-organic feed.
In 2018, we added to our mission by sharing the farm with others through a corn maze. On September 22, we will open our first corn maze, which takes up about 10 acres of our property. We will have all the usual things expected at a corn maze such as additional activities (corn pit, bale maze, petting zoo), as well as vendors to provide food and other goods. Keeping with our mission, we grew the corn without spraying with harsh chemicals – we used oats as a cover crop and good ol’ elbow grease to keep the weeds low, so you can enjoy the corn maze without worrying about what’s on your shoes when you get home. We hope your family can join us this Fall and check it out!
