We are Joe and Theresa Turner. We have only been farming for the past 3 years and are still learning better ways to do things. We have 5 acres and we grow a variety of fruits and vegetables as well as raising chickens and ducks for both eggs and meat. Even though Joe has had a different career for the past 30 years he couldn't get past the fact that farming is in his blood. His grandfather started his farm in Indiana a hundred years ago and although Joe's father loved growing up on the farm he chose a different path. When Joe got out of school he followed in his father's footsteps instead of his grandfather's, but the passion for growing things was still there. Joe's father told him that after they got the first tractor on the farm his grandfather still preferred to farm with his team of horses, which of course is how he had learned from his father and so it had been for many generations before. Today on our farm we use a tractor, but we still try to do things simply and organic like the generations before. Sometimes the old ways are the better ways. Theresa on the other hand is from Louisiana and loves to cook as you will see by some of the things we offer.
Life on our farm is never boring. There is always plenty to do. We raise several varieties of poultry for both eggs & meat. We offer eggs for sale all year long, and seasonal fruits & vegetables from spring through fall. As well as jams, jellies, salsa & other goodies all while raising everything as simply & organic as possible, but we know it's worth it.
You can find us every Wednesday May through September at the Tellico Village Farmer's market from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00p.m. And at our farm (512 Binfield Rd. in Maryville) on Saturdays 9-2. In the Winter months we will be at Tellico Village Tugalloo Beach Rd. every Wednesday 9-10:30.
In todays world many crops have been hybridized for better shipping & handling qualities but at the sake of losing better taste along the way. Depending on the season, we grow a wide range of heirloom varieties. Many times I search seed catalogs for the oldest ones I can find. Some years they are harder to grow, but on a good year the taste can't be beat.
We strive to grow our produce as natural as possible to protect our pollinating friends
We hatch out our own chicks &
ducklings so we can maintain the
quality of our poultry every step
of the way from egg to table. Many customers that buy our eggs have undergone chemotherapy or have other medical conditions that render them unable to eat eggs from other sources, but have tried our eggs and have no issues. We
also offer start up stock to individuals wanting to start their own flock.
We have fenced paddocks to protect our flocks from predators while they free range all day soaking up plenty of sunshine & vitamin D, as well as bugs & worms for extra protein. Scientific studies have shown that eggs from free range hens contain more Vitamin D than caged hens, which makes sense to us. They drink nothing but rain water and we also supplement them with scratch grains & feed to ensure they have all the nutrients they need to be healthy, happy chickens.
