Andrea Hazzard grew up on the family farm. She remembered as a child, the wooden bins of grain in the barn and in the loft of the corn crib, the heavy, silken feeling of them as you thrust your arm in, the dust in the air as the sun streamed through the window. She would go to the corn crib with her grandfather Earl Hazzard and choose a few ears of corn, shell them in the sunshine then trundle across the yard and down to the basement. Grandpa would get the hand crank grinder out and they would make cornmeal for Grandma 19s cornbread. HAZZARD FREE FARM came to be in 2007 to counter Andrea 19s frustration towards the role she was playing in the demise of the environment. It also was a way for her to bring her spiritual and philosophical beliefs in line with the way she lives. One of the tenets of the farm is education. Andrea has worked with many entities to introduce, inspire and teach farming to people in the community. They offer a wide variety of high quality heirloom grains, grown in the organic tradition and stone ground, using age-old techniques. They invite customers to visit the farm and visit with family and friends. They do not use treated or GMO seeds, EVER! Chemical pesticides, herbicides, insecticides or fungicides are also NEVER USED.
