In an effort to spread awareness of organic farming technique, Colle farmers market highlights Scooby’s Organic Farm as a source of an organic Thanksgiving.
Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) November 22, 2012
On November 22, Colle Farmers Market applauds an article published by the Broward Palm Beach New Times which discusses the organic farming techniques of Scooby’s Organic Farm in Davie, Florida.
According to Broward Palm Beach New Times, Motty Katzir and Enat Halperin-Katzir, Scooby’s Organic Farm owners, “purchased the turkeys as poults at the start of the season and raise them until they are ready for your Thanksgiving table. From the day they are brought to the farm, the turkeys are fed an organic diet with no soy. The Katzirs are the local distributors for Countryside Organic (organic feed and seeds).”
As a committed vegetarian, Enat commented on the practice of organic farming to Broward Palm Beach New Times stating “beyond the health risks [of conventionally raised animals] it's for the love of animals. Our animals are raised organically, pasture fed and free-range all day, the way nature and God intended: no soy, hormones, medication, preservatives, GMOs or pesticides.”
As advocates within the organic community, Colle Farmers Market is spreading awareness of organic farming techniques to those with questions and concerns for such a different lifestyle. Colle Farmers Market encourages everyone within the organic community to eat organically this Thanksgiving and have a happy holiday.
While there are still turkeys available, “All customers must fill out a co-op membership, which discloses the…unconventional practices of the farm -- the [use] of raw milk for pet consumption, details for handling eggs, etc. The cost of membership is $20 per year. It gives customer access to free-range eggs, chickens, and ducks year-round. And raw goat's milk, when available. All of the products are available directly from the farm, which is located in west Davie or through pick-up locations in Weston and Tamarac,” reports Broward Palm Beach New Times.
Colle is an E-Commerce enabled farmers market community that is passionate about sustainable consumption and responsible conservation. The Colle movement is dedicated to connecting natural product vendors, organic farmers and all people who are living an organic and natural lifestyle with the ultimate goal of using more sustainable farming and consumerism.
