Organic, Free Range, and Grass-Fed Farm Products From Lake Meadow Naturals of Ocoee
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red and note magenta)
(10000 Mark Adam Rd., Ocoee, FL 34761, 321-206-6262).
One can actually pick eggs at this farm (one day in a week, on Saturdays, please bring your own cartons)!
Did you know that the Farm Market’s eggs are so fresh that they’ll last 45 days? But if you’re not able to or not interested in picking your own eggs, you can still purchase fresh duck eggs, quail eggs, pullet eggs, and occasionally even TURKEY EGGS at the Farm Market.
I love to add egg(s) in various types of soups I cook at home. Did you know that EINSTEIN once declared that his second greatest idea after the theory of relativity was to add an egg while cooking soup in order to produce a soft-boiled egg without having an extra pot to wash?
In this gem of a place I am also able to find animal products that are all organic, free-range, and from grass-fed sources (lamb, pork, goat, duck, etc.). There are also raw honey from the farm, cheese (over 100 varieties of clean, organic, and GMO free), pickled vegetables, bee pollen, fresh fruits, vegetables, and even sugar cane and Amish style handrolled butter! This is the first time in my life that I’ve ever seen (and purchased) HANDROLLED BUTTER!
The milk sold at the Farm Market is from a local farm called Mosier Farm and cheeses are from all over the world with no added water or preservatives.
The hens, ducks, turkeys, and goats of this farm all seem to have plenty of space to roam and all space seem very clean. It would appear that these animals are leading a rather happy existence.
If you have pets or animals, please be sure to leave them at home in order to avoid health risk to both your animals/pets and animals on the farm.
For the week between May 14-20, 2015, there is the special of: with $50.00 or more of purchase, one may choose one free item from:
- 1 basket of Shallots and Garlic
- 1 lb Ground Pork
- 1 dozen Pullet Eggs
- 1 lb Greek Yogurt
On this twenty-something acres ten miles outside of Orlando, this free range farm offers farm products without the use of hormones or brproducts. The owner Dale Volkert says he believes his free range eggs are healthier than the big egg producers. “We are different than the big guys, we don’t put our chickens in cages,” said Volkert. “They are about volume and we are about quality. “Volkert says his farm’s mission is also to support the “slow food” movement – kind of the antithesis of “fast food.”
“The slow food movement is about how things were done in the past like back in the 50’s,” he explained. “We use breeds of chickens that are older breeds, heritage breeds. We have people who deliver house to house. “It’s more about connecting with the person who grows your food and knowing where your food comes from.” Volkert is aware of the debate stemming from the current salmonella outbreak over whether cage-free chickens are any safer than those on larger farms, who produce cheaper eggs. But, he says, “I think if you take care of your animals they will take care of you.”
