Shop Girl for Farm Week

One more farm to pay tribute to…thanks to our fellow blogger AGRIgirl–Life Lessons From My Kitchen.

Please check out AGRIgirl, it is packed with  great content and valuable information.  Tammy’s love of  good food, life lessons from her kitchen,  leadership skills and an advocate for creating healthier communities is a food journal readers MUST!

Desert Roots Farm which is located in Queen Creek, Arizona.  Farm owner, Kelly Saxer has been tending to this 33-acre  CSA farm selling fresh high quality vegetables and herbs since 2001 without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.  Bringing back the farm to the community is her main goal.  A win-win relationship everyone benefits from.  When you sign up for Kelly’s CSA you will receive a box of seasonal foodstuffs throughout the farming season.  Know your farmer, know how the land is being treated, know your food.
