Who are we? At Build Your Food, we focus on a higher standard than organic with our food production, which is why we coined the term permaculturally-grown. We grow our food in sync with mother nature's inherent principles by instilling biodiversity in our soil, which in turn keeps our plants' immune systems strong. None of our crops are sprayed with anything besides fermented compost teas and herbal sprays. With that system in place, our produce easily sets a standard beyond organic.
We will be at Old Beach Farmer's Market on May 9th and May 23rd from 8-12. We have permaculturally grown greens of all sorts, sugar snap peas, sweet potatoes, and most importantly, spring mix lettuce. Our spring mix lettuce is our prized farm possession with its mild, yet incredibly crisp characteristics. We also have pasture-raised happy eggs, chemical free starter plants, and seeds.
In April, we launched a new local concept with a health and beauty line of products as part of our "Build Your Health" theme on the farm. We use organic, pure ingredients and specialize in skin rejuvenation and healing. Each product is infused with therapeutic essential oils. Our health and beauty line consists of anti-aging cream and serum, day cream, body butter, lip balm, blemish salve, chemical-free sunscreen, bug spray, deodorant (that actually works!), face masks, and more!
