We follow USDA Organic Program and Certified Naturally Grown Standards! 

Dearing Country Farms is a small family owned/operated farmstead, growing and harvesting an abundant of healthy foods.  We raise chickens for meat and eggs and grow a full variety of seasonal produce, trees, fruit, berries, melons, flowers, grasses, nuts and herbs. Dearing Country Farms products can be purchased directly from off the farm, local farmers markets, and at several health food stores.   

Today most foods are rapidly produced, full of additives, preservatives and LESS HEALTHY.  Most meats come from animals full of antibiotics, steroids and growth hormones.  Fruits and vegetables are mass produced using genetically altered seeds, applied herbicides, pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, coming from who knows where, including foreign countries with poor regulation.  Dearing Country Farms produces fresh, natural, humanely grown products, right here on our eco-friendly farm just 3 miles west of Bloomington.

We have raised from chicks, organically fed, cage-free, pastured laying hens, turkeys and chickens that produce healthy, great tasting, top quality meat and eggs. See pics here! 

Through earth friendly and natural farming practices we grow and cultivate a wide variety of fruits, nuts, berries and vegetables. We have a small shop on our property, as well as sell through a variety of local grocery and specialty stores and will be attending farmers markets in Bloomington, Normal and surrounding communities.  We also started in 2010 a CSA - Community Supported Agriculture opportunity.
