Large Lettuce Harvest: Satur Farms
" To create continual revenues and to offer year-round employment to our team, we began farming in Florida in the winter months. Additionally, we represent our neighbors' farm products during our growing season; occassionally we might source from other growers beyond our region. Sourcing is done only to ensure the sustainability and viability of the farm. The company's social responsibilities continue beyond our fence line, as we donate to food rescue organizations and are involved in local fundraisers for farm organizations and other socially responsible causes." ...from their website saturfarms.com (Long Island, NY)
We grow sustainably, preserve open spaces & ecosystems, care for animals, support the arts, facilitate local products & economies. A large part of our work is philanthropic, our Horse, Hound, & Farm Rescue's mission is adopting hound dogs, wild horses, and supporting other family farms. We work in concert with wildlife preservation, artistic creations, and horticultural traditions. We were awarded a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education grant in 2005.
