Tin Roof Ranch Tour (North Shore)
Saturday, March 23, 2013 9 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Tin Roof Ranch is the only ranch on Oahu that sells fresh organic pasture raised chickens & eggs farm direct. This farm is diverse, sustainable & uses only organic products such as worm castings & compost tea. Please join us as LuAnn Casey and her husband, Gary Gunder, host Slow Food Oahu for a tour of their amazing farm on the North Shore. LuAnn and Gary have had the farm for 10 years and have turned land the land that used to be overgrown with weeds, numerous old refrigerators, stoves & broken down cars in the fields into a productive & sustainable farm. Their hope is to educate, inspire & encourage others in growing some of their own food and to continue to support the local farmers. During the tour, you will see the inner workings of an organic farm from water catchment, bee keeping, soil rebuilding techniques, natural & humane animal raising …this is how farming used to be & it worked well, and LuAnn and Gary are working hard to bring back these practices that are good for our health as well as the community, the island & the planet. Following the tour, there will be an opportunity to buy chicken and/or eggs to take home.
