Caineville's Hometown Hero, Randy Ramsley, produces abundant food without depleting the earth’s resources or polluting its environment.
Caineville, UT-- Farmer Randy Ramsley creates world-class farmstead cheese, fresh-baked bread, and cinnamon rolls and cultivates organic crops in the tiny Utah town of Caineville, population 25--not including goats. You will find Ramsley tending to his crops and animals of his 50-acre Mesa Farm Market. His farm located just east of Capitol Reef National Park has been providing the community and its visitors with its plentiful assortment of goat milk cheeses, fresh bread, coffee, vegetables, and even goat milk soap for over 23 years.
The farm’s herd of about 50 goats produces beautiful milk that, in turn, makes world-class farmstead cheese. “We milk the goats, we make the cheese,” said Ramsley. “We are so pleased when we see the delight in the eyes of our customers as they savor the deeply sublime and yet complex flavor of Mesa Farm’s cheese.”
Stop on by to grab some heirloom tomatoes or a pesto tomato sandwich made on artisan bread. This sustainable farm is open seven days a week starting in March and closing sometime in “October-ish”--depending on the weather. “The atmosphere at our store is relaxed. There are tables and chairs on the porch where you can sit and enjoy a selection of seasonal products. You can also purchase a nice combination of foods that you can take with you to eat later,” says Ramsley.
"Sustainable agriculture is one that produces abundant food without depleting the earth’s resources or polluting its environment. Sustainable agriculture is agriculture that is able to produce abundant food without harming the environment and without depleting the resources. At Mesa Farm Market we are working to make our farm and our community more sustainable,” he said.
The items always available at the farm are bread baked in a wood-fired stone oven, world-famous cinnamon rolls, freshly made organic coffee from Cafe Mam, award-winning farmstead goat cheeses, tea, and other assorted drinks. The seasonally available items include salads from the garden and greenhouse, vegetables, pesto, and fermented foods from the garden.
Mesa Farm Market was recently featured on InUtah.org which is an organization that supports healthy choices while boosting Utah’s economy and supporting Utah businesses.
Thanks, Farmer Ramsley for being a Hometown Hero and creating a sustainable farm, and supporting your community by providing fresh homegrown goods.
