Hello, my name is Cindy and I am a farmer. 

Sounds a bit like a confession doesn’t it?

Well, it sort of is. I no longer apologize for my love of excellent quality food, my passion for organic and regenerative farming and the joy I feel being outside all day. Every great story starts with some drama and heart ache, and mine is no different. After teaching ourselves how to farm for 11 years with my husband, as Dragonfly Farm Store, we came to the end of our business relationship.

But from heart break came some clarity and new plans for my future.  While dismantling the life I shared, I started dreaming and planning about my future. I realized I could not give up on my dreams of farming and self-marketing amazing local and organic foods. I knew I did not want to spend time away from animals for long and I knew I could not go and work for someone else.  (Anyone who has hired me knows I make a terrible employee.)

When you have poured all your heart and soul into something for 11 years ends, you don’t feel much like celebrating. But at the same time, I was tired of not celebrating. Farming and food brings me so much joy and delight. I love my job, and the relationships I built with partner farms and local suppliers and the hard work needed to do what I do.  I love the idea that I am building a life with goals and targets, not just living.

So, celebrate I will! I used that heart ache to re-discover my passion, purpose and joy. My enthusiasm to celebrate life, food and farming and do it with some style gave birth to Farm Queen Foods. I own my farm and raise pigs, chickens, ducks, goats, turkey and quail and work hard to steadfastly pay my mortgage.

I have become the Queen of the my own little empire, a lady farmer, lady boss and all around happy and inspired person living her dream!

And this is where Farm Queen Foods came from.

I hope you like what we have to offer.  It takes a village to grow and raise the amazing foods I grow and sell.  Its not a lonesome business. I am so thankful and respectful of the farmers who allow me to sell their grass-fed, pastured and organic meats, dry goods and produce, along with the food I produce in my farm store.
 
Thank you for standing by me through all the changes and for your continued support! Thank you for buying from us, a collection of like-minded, passionate farmers who choose to grow organically, respectfully and ecologically.
To learn more about how we farm check out HOW WE FARM page for all the details.  By selling direct to customers, establishing my own distribution channels, building my own supply chain with like minded processors, farmers and suppliers; learning to raise BEEF,  PORK,  CHICKEN,  TURKEY,  DUCK, GOAT and  EGGS has been a wonderful adventure.  
Now, it’s all I, and the great group of Partnership Farms want to do! All of our meat is processed at a few local abattoirs that we are proud to support.  They work very hard to offer custom butchering and they take into consideration our special needs.  We sell by the packaged pound, not the hanging weight of the animal. 
We hope you enjoyed getting to know us and sharing in our passion.  I was told once that farming is a great life if you don’t weaken! Well I am stronger now than I was and I have no intention of give up farming.  I  love my farm and living this blessed life!
So, from all of us at Farm Queen Foods, please celebrate your life with the great food we grow!
All my Best,
Cindy
