Check out one of our new farms – *Crones Cradle

Crones Cradle Conserve is a 756 acre, privately-owned, ecological preserve and education center located in Marion County, thirty-five miles southeast of Gainesville, an area of increasing sprawl and development. Sustainability is the underlying theme of all the Conserve’s endeavors. The Conserve seeks to retain as much as possible the existing flora and fauna in its natural state within Conserve boundaries. Less than 100 acres are being used for human purposes. The ultimate priority of the Conserve is protecting and appreciating the earth before carrying out any of its “people-related” ventures. This approach is the only way to achieve sustainability for farming, for the local community and for the planet, emphasizes Jeri Baldwin, co-founder with Deborah Light of Sag Harbor, New York of the Conserve

We are starting to ramp up business as the growing season slowly picks up from the wet summer and fall that delayed planting for farmers.

So keep your eyes peeled for new items popping up on the website!

We are all right now volunteering for the buying club – no one is on salary currently and everyone is pulling together to make purchases because of the desire to build a food system we can trust and because of a common belief that healthy food is right!

So if you have time and or professional skills, ideas, please don’t hesitate to join in.

Just email a resume and interest to BHbuyingclub@gmail.com

Come out and check out the new space across the street from Ella’s Folk Art Cafe!
