Backyard Acres at FTF’s Farm Philosophy

Backyard Acres at FTF raises animals, vegetables and eggs – meeting or exceeding organic standards. We believe that providing healthy, local, fresh food by utilizing methods of sustainable production is essential to long-term well-being of the human body and the environment. We’ve found that once people rediscover how fabulous food tastes that a) is super-fresh because it’s not shipped in from across the country, and b) is a heritage breed of animal or type of vegetable, they never want to go back to the bland store-bought food they’d eaten before.

Environmental Stewardship

The FTF farm has quite a bit of wetland, so they’ve been careful to set aside riparian areas to protect Lily Bay Creek that runs through the property, and not allow animals onto any wetland area unless it’s completely dry. They have created brush piles for birds and animals to house in, put up many bluebird and bat houses, and maintained wooded areas scattered about the farm to preserve wild habitat. Backyard Acres’ uses managed grazing rotations to maintain pastures, wooded areas and wetlands naturally. There is encouraged and dedicated wild pollinator habitat. An 18kW solar photovoltaic system mounted on the barn roof generates electricity to help power the farm operation, reducing the amount of fossil fuel needed.
