Cartermere is focused on producing exceptional food - nothing more, nothing less. When we consider what new endeavors or opportunities to pursue we filter them through this simple litmus test... "will it help us produce great food?"
In pursuing our goal of producing great food, we have learned there are areas where we can excel. While others we find ourselves fighting upstream against our environment, soils, equipment or skills. As such, we try our best to concentrate on the areas where we do well, all the while working to learn and master those areas we have yet to solve.
We raise fresh eggs, pastured poultry and grass-fed lamb. Lastly, we are putting our focus back to seasonal vegetables and will have small amounts of veggies we know we can produce well. While keeping an experimental mind set and adding a few new items to our list one season at a time.
