Working Together -- We do not pretend that we are one big farm producing it all under one farm name, we understand that it takes a LARGE rural community effort from a network of many hard working rural family farms dedicated to a lifestyle in agriculture in order to produce a large enough volume of certain products to make available to the urban marketplace on a consistent supplied basis.

Artisan Farms Products -- Yes, we group products under one brand for simplicity reasons, but we fully disclose that we are working with over 300 farming families – hard working rural families dedicated to the lifestyle they have chosen – to work with Mother Nature during good times and bad !!

Humane Care -- Artisan Farms Direct Products are Raised by the Family Farmers that we know and trust – Traditionally Raised SUSTAINABLY and HUMANELY for the benefit of all; and raised with nature's traditional ingredients: sunshine, fresh air, grasses, corn and hay, then these hard working Families add a COMPASSIONATE, STRESS-FREE ENVIRONMENT to ensure that we are all bringing the highest quality Farm Direct Products to your Family’s Table.
