Rosy Buck Farm is the brainchild of Holly Evans and Randy Buck. We met in 2009 when we were the only two interns on a farm on Orcas Island, off the coast of Washington. Since then we have traveled the world, volunteering on dozens of different farms to learn as much as we could about sustainable farming. We have slaughtered quail in Tennessee, gathered stinging nettles in France, inoculated sheep in New Zealand, and harvested Brussels sprouts in Vermont. Now we are excited to be starting our fourth season on our own farm!
Currently we are getting our hands dirty in Missouri, growing a modest farm for farm shares and farmers' markets in the St. Louis area.
We believe that everyone has the right to know the whole story behind their food, from seed to plate. The current food system has become focused on maximizing production, shelf life, and transportability, rather than simply enjoying growing delicious food. This shift of priorities has not only impacted the quality of our food, but also wreaked havoc on the environment. Small-scale sustainable farming is the solution to these problems. We encourage you to stop by Rosy Buck Farm to meet your farmers, check out the fields, and get to know where your food comes from. Unlike large industrial monocrop farms, balanced farming benefits the environment (from rebuilding topsoil to providing safe food for pollinators) and produces tastier, more nutritious vegetables for you and your family.
