Sumerlyn Eats: Gaucho Farms
On a recent sunny Saturday I had the opportunity to visit Gaucho Farms in Slocomb. It is a family-owned operation that practices biodynamic agricultural farming. Biodynamic agriculture is a form of organic farming that encompasses the farm as a whole, in which the animals, crops and soil are all one system. This means the soil is aided by manures and composts from the farm and the grass and produce in-turn feed the animals. So, in short, they don’t use chemicals! On our trip, our main focus was the 100% chemical-free blueberry picking. They have rows and rows of ripe, full blueberry bushes ready to be harvested, and we made sure to get our buckets full. Gaucho farms also has a “Farmacy” where you can buy cage-free eggs, delicious cucumber salsa, handmade soaps, deet-free natural bug repellant (which I swear by) and 100% grass-fed beef and lamb. Since the availability of their goods depends upon the season, make sure to follow them on Facebook for current products and visiting hours. A job well-done, Gaucho Farms; we tip our “The Local” hats to you.
