Mint Creek Farm


 At Mint Creek Farm, Harry Carr and his family strive for maximum species diversity in both animals and pasture plants. “We are fervent believers in 100% grass-fed animal nutrition,” says Harry, who explains that an abundance of green leafy plants in the diet of ruminant animals raise the omega-3 composition of fatty acid balance–resulting in a healthier animal, which makes for healthier meat. (An explanation of this process is available at “Having started raising sheep organically 20 years ago,” Harry says, “we have added goats, cows, pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys, and geese. We have worked on mimicking the way buffalo would graze prairie with our pasture management techniques–a process sometimes called mob grazing.” The organic-fed, grass-fed meat and eggs raised at Mint Creek are available to buy at every Green City Market day, where you can also find more information about the farm and its meat CSA offerings.
