The Knapp family farm, Cobblestone Valley, has been passed down 4 generations. To preserve, conserve, and rebuild is the driving force behind this beautifully maintained estate in Preble, New York. The Knapps see it as their mission to treat land, animals, and people well.
This certified organic farm specializes in dairy. That in turn fuels the other enterprises that thrive there: such as poultry, beef, pork, strawberries, and compost. Maureen Knapp introduced me to their gang of turkeys. With the holidays right around the corner, it’s a good time of year to consider where your food comes from.
Local and organic products are the building blocks of a more sustainable food structure. To quote the mindful family, “In organic farming we use nature as our teacher and we believe that all health begins with the soil. As such our soils are our most precious resource. Healthy soils grow healthy plants, which produce healthy animals and, in turn, healthy people.” With all the feasting that happens with loved ones during this season, wouldn’t it be nice to spread the consideration that you are what you eat? Challenge your household to eat local and organic products this year, and support farmer owned organizations.
