Click here to visit our GoFundMe Fundraiser page 2 years ago, Andrew and I took a chance.  We had a vision and a mission greater than us both to inspire others to live mindfully, eat healthy, and thrive; all while sustaining our local, clean food sources.  Between the sad grocery store options and the overpriced big box specialty stores, there was real need for an affordable, convenient, and CLEAN local food service to fill the gaps in our small town food desserts.  We planted a seed in the form of a facebook page to gauge interest, and with hundreds of people signing […]

We’ll cut to the chase so you don’t have to read a bunch of fluff. Here we go: What it is: The “Always Open” or “24/7” feature is a software improvement that allows us to continue offering items over the weekend. In the past, orders would open on Monday’s and close on Friday’s. When they’d close we would call in our orders with our distributor and local vendors. So What’s Changed, Other Than The Obvious?: We’re still placing our distributor orders on Friday, so the distributor-listed produce you see on the site over the weekend is what we like to […]

If you’re not making your own mozzarella, you’re missing out. It’s super easy, and doesn’t take long at all! Taste the difference and take a look at G.G. Farms milk on the order site ( store.dirtroadorganics.com ) . For a quick step-by-step, watch this video! We don’t currently offer rennet on the online store, but we will be VERY soon. A quick Amazon search finds rennet that you can order right now (see here or here) AND have it before your milk arrives next week. With our friends over at the Hairy Farmpit farm offering their dough again, we couldn’t wait […]

In an alternate universe, an aspiring young author goes to his magazine editor for advice on a story he’s written. The editor says, “This won’t do. This is too preposterous, even for a science fiction magazine. Science fiction has to be, at the core, believable. No rational person would believe that there existed a society in which people did not know where their food came from. You’re asking us to believe in a society where people eat over-prepared, chemical-laden, pre-packaged food hauled over long distances – instead of locally grown, in-season food, fresh from the soil.” This is the science […]

So we’ve offered Canewater Farms amazing corn products for a while now. You’re probably familiar with their awesome grits, their polenta, their corn meal or flour by now (sidenote: their fish fry is killer, too!) What we haven’t been able to offer with regularity is their produce . . . not because we haven’t wanted to, but because logistically getting up to Darien has been tough with most of our other member farms being situated in South central Georgia. I’m going to let the pictures do the talking here, but I want to thank you guys and gals first. What’s […]

< ![CDATA[Our favorite local honey folks over at Bruce's Honey Shack were kind enough to bless us with a lot of bee pollen yesterday. If you're not familiar with the benefits of adding some straight up bee pollen to your daily routine, you should definitely keep reading. Especially if you're buying multi-vitamins on the regular! Bee pollen benefits anyone who consumes it. As an alkaline food, bee pollen benefits and balances the overall PH of your body. People agree that the bee pollen nutritional profile is one of the most complete in the world. I use it as an alternative […]
