West Wind Farms

West Wind Farms is an ideal made into reality. Serving as environmental professionals in Oak Ridge for decades, Ralph and Kimberlie Cole developed a common drive to do more with their knowledge of environmental protection and sustainability. With little more than a dream and a prayer, they started West Wind Farms over 18 years ago. Six years later, West Wind Farms became one of the first meat and poultry farms in the U.S. to be certified organic, exceeding the then-new USDA organic standards. After many years of both farming and working full-time off-farm to self-finance their dream, the Coles now farm, full-time. Over those years, West Wind Farms has grown to be one of the most successful and well-known meat and poultry farms in the southeastern U.S. The Cole’s have an unwaivering commitment to high quality, local food systems, animal welfare, and the environment. Their customers are adamant supporters, and the Cole’s attribute their farm’s success to their customers’ commitment to these same values. West Wind Farms’ delicious meats and poultry certainly make it easy too!

A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes, in spirit, the community's farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production.  CSA's focus is on a system of regular delivery or pick-up of farm products.  CSA is different from buying clubs and home delivery services, where the consumer buys a specific product at a predetermined price.  CSA shareholders purchase only what the farm is able to successfully grow and harvest.  In essence CSA shareholders share in the abundance as well as some of the risks with the farmer.  Risks may include temporary shortages, seasonal changes in flavor, and other conditions that can occur in natural systems.
