Fresh veggies, free range chickens, eggs, turkeys, pastured lamb and hogs - who knew you could get all of that in one spot? Houston's Home Grown, LLC located in Hermann, Mo. focuses on quality food while farming in a sustainable way.
Paul and Amy Houston moved to the Hermann area from Minnesota to try their hand in farming, which is when Houston's Home Grown, LLC was born. They both had an agriculture background and decided to make it their livelihood. Paul and Amy like to focus on what is good for the consumer, the environment, the soil, and the animals. They refrain from using pesticides as much as possible by hand picking bugs and weeds; however, when the need arises they will use organic approved sprays. The couple's farm animals are given a lot of area to roam and graze on grass, if they are provided any feed it is in addition to hay and grass and is always antibiotic free.
If you are interested in purchasing fresh vegetables, meat, eggs, or even flowers you can find them at the Hermann Farmers Market on Wednesday's from 3-6 p.m.and Saturday's 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. or you can call the Houston's at (573) 294-6040.
