FEATURED VENDOR: Fair Share Farms


Life In the Soil Means Live Cultures in a Jar


For two decades, Tom Ruggieri and Rebecca Graff have been working from the ground up to fortify the soil on their fourth-generation family farm in Kearney, Mo.


Their efforts to feed the soil using organic cover crops instead of synthetic fertilizers led

to Fair Share Farm Ferments, a line of products which includes green kimchi, escabeche and sauerkraut.


“Giving your soil a diverse diet is really important You are what you eat, so you are what your plants eat,” Tom says. “The soil is the guts of the plant. It’s where are all the digesting happens, and the nutrients are absorbed by the plant.”

 

Fair Share Farm ferments the organic vegetables using culinary techniques drawn on traditional global foodways. The natural fermentation process only requires a little sea salt, paprika or other spices to result in a burst of natural flavor.

 

“We are all literally connected to the land,” Tom says. “We’re like a winery or dairy. Ninety-five percent of what is in a jar is from Missouri soil, and it comes through in the flavor.”


Established as a CSA vegetable subscription service in 2003, Fair Share Farm has transitioned to focusing exclusively on value-added products thanks to the addition of a USDA-certified, HAACP-approved onsite farm kitchen.


“I tell people it’s a kitchen without a stove,” he says.


Even with a growing interest in live culture foods, Fair Share continues to educate consumers on the advantages for human gut health. Each jar of fermented raw vegetables naturally contains live cultures in the same way yogurt does.


Fermented foods also complements Barham Family Farm’s pasture-raised meats in more way than one.


“We also rely on healthy soil to graze our pasture-raised livestock, and we’re eager to support fellow Kearney farmers who care for the soil,” says Kenny Barham. “Selling Fair Share’s Ferments at our farm store just makes sense.”

Testimonials

Small town AWESOME!! The variety of meat and of course the farm fresh eggs! Perfect!
Beth Jackson
Kenny Barham provides outstanding natural and humane products, and he is super friendly as well. He is a must buy at the Liberty Farmers Market. You can visit his farm in Kearney, or eat at a number of local restaurants. Our favorite is his rotisserie duck at Brookside Poultry Co. of course! Highly recommended.
Justin Dixon
High quality! Family owned! Great people
Jason and Fanta Eplee
We have loved all the meat purchased at the Liberty Farmers Market. I was starting to dread the end of market season until I discovered they have a store. Again, everything is top quality but I have to mention the brauts. I've never had any so lean. Steaks are some of the best we've had.

Chef Charles d'Ablaing closed his beloved Brookside Poultry Co. earlier this year, but not before he shared his recipe for a prized poultry marinade with Barham Family Farm! The marinade features vermouth, an ingredient that is more closely associated with classic cocktails such as the Martini, Manhattan or Negroni, adds a subtle sweetness to a roast chicken, duck and more. Craving some of Brookside Poultry Co.'s signature poultry dishes? Look for items on menus at Chef Charles' new home, J. Rieger & Co.

It’s easy, and Annette Barham graciously agreed to share her favorite orange-spice glaze recipe to help make your ham extra-special, but if you’re looking for an even easier way to add flavor without the fuss, pick up a few jars of Beautiful Day Farm jams and jellies while you’re at the store and go the heat-and-serve route instead.
