The day before Halloween we unfortunately had a barn fire and the wonderful old barn pictured on top of the site went down in flames. It was spectacular but horrifying at the same time. We did have insurance and the new barn is in the works but we did loose some birds and most of my tools however life is good and we're on the way back. We still have a lot of product available so please don't hesitate to call us anytime.

A Little About Us.
JEM Organic Farm is a Certified Organic Farm located just outside of Historic Rogersville TN. We are a small family run farm and grow certified organic produce and are one of Tennessee's only Non GMO whole chicken and egg producers as well as Non GMO pork and goat producer.
We have 2 unheated hoophouses which grow year'round as well as our outside fields which are primaraly used in the summer. We have a few fruit trees and some rasperry bushes as well as some strawberries for 2014!
We raise our own hogs and goats, supplying various cuts of each. We also raise NON GMO Meat Birds including chicken, duck and turkey on occasion.
We do offer a CSA, usually in the summer months but this year we may offer one for the winter so stay tuned for more info.
All our animals are raised without confinement and allowed to behave like...umm animals, meaning they root, scratch, eat grass and swim! We rotate each of our animals to clean fields often, offer the best hay we can manage and keep our pastures as nice as possible. We raise them the way nature intended. Our feeling is that healthy, happy animals create a balanced farm and provide the best tasting meat and eggs.
ALL OUR ANIMALS ARE FED 100% NON GMO FEED. This feed is tested at every batch from the supplier and carries the NON GMO Verified Label and there in NO Exception!
Why We Do Things Differently Than Most.
Over the last several years we’ve read a lot of labels and found that a whole lot of the so-called “natural” foods on the market are treated or contain altered ingredients. Whether it is GMO’s, high fructose corn syrup, pesticides or antibiotics, most things found in the grocery stores contain some of this stuff and frankly we are completely tired of filling our shelves with poor food choices and with foods that want to kill us!
So, yes we talk about GMO’s, we want to make everyone aware of what pesticides and herbicides can do to our bodies. The saying is "you are what you eat" is important to JEM Farm and should be important to anyone who occasionally eats.......!
Pictures around the Farm
Here are some shots of our farm and chicken enclosures
NON GMO Eggs
We also provide our customers with the finest pasture raised free range Eggs available to man. The feed we use contains NO GMO's and is purely natural. Our chickens are cage free and unconfined, get moved every day to a new patch of grass. They are healthy and happy, which is why their eggs are so wonderful.
• Our pigs are also raised with the animal’s welfare in mind. Raised unconfined in our woods they can root to their hearts content. These pigs are generally big! Over 400lbs, we feel raising them this way provides a better meat taste, texture and healthier pig. • All our animals are never given hormones or antibiotics. Our family doesn't want to eat meat from animals treated with drugs and we feel you shouldn't either.
