Well, I'm Eden. I live on one end of my husband's family farm in Montgomery County, KY. I have sheep. I also have two small children and the luxury of being home with them most of the time. You can read more about us here www.gardenofedenfarms.blogspot.com. I have always been serious about food, both from a taste standpoint and from a health standpoint. I banned margarine and other fake fats way back! That seriousness got more intense after I had my children, and started applying the same principles I learned in graduate school studying physiology and nutrition of livestock to feeding our family. I went from formulating rations to formulating weekly menus, menus that had to accommodate our nutritional needs while addressing my growing unease with how some commodity livestock were being produced and distributed. You are what you eat. Especially while they are young and growing a lifetime's worth of bone and brain and other organs I felt like the kids deserved and would benefit from the very best quality food I could give them. I also needed to feel okay answering my kids' questions about where their dinner came from. I wasn't sure I could do that with commodity meat. I honestly feel like I live in the Garden of Eden, a little piece of paradise right here in the green hills of Kentucky where I can raise my sheep and my kids in clean, quiet healthy surroundings, with the natural world all around and us a part of it. My neighbors feel the same way, and we want to preserve that feeling by making you our neighbor. I know not everyone is lucky enough to live on a farm and understand the difference between commodity food and real food. Crazy though it seems, I know not everyone wants to spend their predawn February hours checking for lambs, or their August afternoons sorting sheep. People still want to participate, feel like they have some input, some control over not just what they put in their mouths and their bodies but the process whereby it got there as well. People should have access to the producer as well as the product; you deserve the chance to ask how the lambs are raised and what they are fed and why that makes a difference. I do things the way I do because it's better: better for the lamb and better for the environment, better for the producer and the consumer. I am proud to be the Eden of Garden of Eden Farms and I offer my lamb not just as a taste good, feel good, good for you entree but also as an entree, if you will, to a relationship. It is an invitation to a conversation about food and why it matters so much and what that means on a day to day farm where we raise animals for food.
