Swallowtail Farm is located north of Alachua, along a fertile ridge of highland soil that crests the spine of Florida. We have crafted the farm as a model of sustainability and fine land stewardship, with a focus on appropriate scale, conservation of resources, and nature-produced fertility. No synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or other chemicals will ever touch our fields or your food.
A family owned farm located in the heart Gainesville, Florida. The farm operates under faith and family values and cultivates crops based on holistic, natural methods. All food grown on the farm meets USDA's requirements for organic certification. All materials used in production are approved by OMRI, the Organic Materials Review Institute. In addition to fresh hand picked produce they also provide free range eggs, and wild flowers. Due to cost the farm is not certified organic therefore, produce can only be sold as naturally grown. Although natural production is labor intensive and costly, the quality, sweetness, nutrition and safety of the food is assured.
We provide premium American grass-fed, grass-finished Angus beef born, raised, and harvested on the same property where cattle graze year-round out in the open air on more than 90,000 acres of rolling pastures. We employ the highest standards of animal welfare and sustainability in all aspects of our operation. All our animals are naturally raised and naturally fed.
