CRYSTAL LAKE FARMS
Crystal Lake Farms has diligently worked over the last five years going “back to the basics” to develop a breed that is not focused on rapid growth and high yield but is still superior to heritage crosses. The Crystal Lake ‘Free Ranger’ is a slower growing chicken that thrives both inside and outside. It’s also a hearty bird that wants to forage outside in the elements and be itself, naturally. Because the ‘Free Ranger’ is not focused on extreme performance and has a direct lineage to certain heritage breeds, it is generally healthier and has a better tolerance for the changing environment.
Progressive Farm is replanting often to keep production up and customers supplied. The company sells to a number of restaurants and grocers including Reasor's, Whole Foods and community-supported agriculture programs. You can find Progressive Farms produce in the Oklahoma City area at Uptown Grocery in Edmond and the Urban Agrarian in the Farmers Public Market district. After enjoying that fresh salad, I couldn't wait to try some of Progressive Farms' certified organic spinach and braising greens.
Fisher's Eggs' chickens are fed an all-grain diet mixed in their own feed mill. Absolutely no antibiotics, drugs, or hormones are put in the chickens' food. They regularly evaluate our nutrition formulas to ensure our chickens’ feed meets all protein, energy, vitamin, and mineral requirements for optimum health and efficient growth.
Lomah’s cows have a great life, as they get to graze, sleep or do whatever they want, enjoying the creeks, wooded areas and large pastures on the acreage. Twice daily they meander to the milk barn to be milked, then they leisurely stroll back to the fields. Talk about happy cows!
At the market, you can expect to find cheese curds, vat pasteurized milk, soft & hard cheeses, butter, skyr and yogurt.
