Farm Tours – June 22nd

June 22, 2014

Come take a tour of the EL Silvia Farm in Dighton MA and Copicut Farm, Dartmouth MA. Silvia farms has orchards, greenhouses, fields of produce and Copicut Farms has Field raised happy chickens and turkeys. Find out where your food is coming from, it’ll be fun for all.

E. L. Silvia Farm
E.L. Silvia Farms has a long history; the farm had been passed down for generations until inexpensive produce shipped from California and elsewhere began to out-compete the farm fresh produce. After a twenty year hiatus, a son of the owners started farming again in 1973. The farm uses IPM, and grows a lot of corn, nectarines, tomatoes, and peaches.

Copicut FarmsCopicut Farm
Copicut Farms, located in Dartmouth, is owned and operated by a fourth generation Massachusetts farm family. We raise pasture-fed poultry, which means all of our birds spend their lives foraging on our pesticide-free pastures with constant access to fresh grass, legumes, and insects. Pasture-raised chicken, turkey, and eggs are a healthy choice, with more beneficial nutrients such as omega-3’s and vitamins B & E, and less saturated fats than can be found in their grocery store counterparts. We pride ourselves on the fact that our birds spend their entire lives on our farm right up until our products are ready for your table, which means we can ensure our animals are treated humanely, and our customers receive the absolute freshest meat and eggs available anywhere.
