Farrar Family Farm, LLC
Every story has a beginning, and so it is with us here at Farrar Family Farm. Our story begins in 1956 when Kevin’s parents made the decision to leave the big city and move to the country. They purchased a 160-acre farm located at 150 highway and 291 highway in rural Lee’s Summit, MO. Kevin was just 18 months old at the time and little did he know the impact that move to the country would have on his life! Growing up on the farm was the best possible life he could imagine. For his dad, it was a nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city to his car lot every day on Prospect in Kansas City. Even Kevin’s mother, who was a “city girl” at heart, grew to love living out on the farm. Their days were filled with chores, and 4-H, cattle and chickens, peacock and kittens. Fixing up the century old home was a labor of love and its back door was always open to neighbors, family and friends. It was a wonderful life! The Farrar family lived there for almost 50 years. After his parents passed away, Kevin, his wife and young family were able to live at the farm for 10 more years. As time went on, the landscape began to quickly change around the old farm. Progress had taken over! It was harder to hear the birds sing and tranquility was transformed into traffic jams! It was time to leave. Sadly, the property was sold but Kevin’s passion for farming continued to grow.
In 2007, seven years after saying goodbye to the old farm he loved and grew up on, the Lord led the Farrar family to their new farm in Adrian, MO. God’s timing is always perfect! Our family worked hard over the next few years to reclaim and heal the land. During this time we became increasingly aware of what was happening to our food system in America. Although we already had our suspicions, documentaries such as Food Inc., Fresh, and Joel Salatin’s Polyface Farms confirmed our convictions and awakened a desire in us to get away from industrial farming and get back to basics. We wanted to produce quality food for our family.
An idea was born. In the fall of 2013 Farrar Family Farm was established. Our goal is to provide you with naturally raised wholesome food using sustainable farming methods that mimic the patterns found in nature. We raise grass-fed grass-finished beef, free-range eggs, pastured raised chicken, free-range turkey, and forest raised pork without the use of chemicals, antibiotics or growth hormones. It is important to us to be good stewards of the land God has entrusted to us and raise animals humanely in their natural environment. The benefits of our methods are passed along to you, our customer, by providing a healthy alternative for your table.
