Our Share Partners
We are very excited to partner with other local food producers to provide additional products as part of your weekly pick-up at the garden. Currently, we offer a bread share, egg share and meat share. We know our partners and their operations because they are our neighbors: Tim Kuebelbeck of Rainbows Farm, Steve Nelson of Collegeville Artisan Bakery and Don and Cheri Sauerer of DCBL Acres. Read more about each of these shares below:
Collegeville Artisan Bakery
Each week, members will receive a different type of bread at the discretion of the bakery. See below for a list of bread possibilities for the summer.
DCBL Acres is owned and run by Don and Cheri Sauerer and we are very excited to partner for the first time this season.
From Don and Cheri: "Our 227 acres, crops, pastures, produce, herbs, and canned goods are certified organic. Our animals are raised on our pastures and fed crops grown and harvested on our farm. Our beef and lamb are 99% grass fed. Although grains are not part of our cattle and sheep daily diets, we find our animals enjoy a handful of certified organic grains on occasion. Our chickens are raised cage-free in an environment that allows for natural bird behaviors such as nesting, perching, and dust bathing, all of which are important to healthy habits for birds. Our pastures and crops are planted with certified organic seeds (non-GMO). Our hay is harvested using the old fashioned method of cutting and allowing for drying in the fields by the rays of the sun for several days before baling (no preservatives or drying chemicals). Our meats are processed at a local meat market."
