Grove Ladder Farm is a 10 acre, pasture-based livestock farm in east Sarasota County. Our family farm is home to non-GMO, soy-free, pasture raised chickens (for meat and eggs). We also raise turkeys every year in preparation for the holiday season! Our birds live on clean pastures, with plenty of access to tender grasses, bugs and sunlight. Everything on our farm moves, which means that our happy hens never sit on one spot for very long. We rely on moveable electric fencing and our wonderful livestock guardian dogs to protect our flocks from predators.
We are truly a small family business, run entirely by a husband and wife team. Our three daughters, Celeste (age 6), Rosa Maeve (age 4), and Guinevere (age 2) are at the center of farm life. We welcome visitors and maintain transparency with our customers regarding our farm practices. We love providing our wonderful Sarasota community with quality meat and eggs- its an honor and pleasure to do the work we love, with your support.
Our online Farm Store is the perfect place to shop all of our products at any time, in the comfort of your home! You can also find us at the Downtown Sarasota Farmers Market year-round, along with our two seasonal markets: Phillippi Farmhouse Market and the brand new Market at Lakewood Ranch. We have been blessed to worked with a variety of fantastic local restaurants, including Buttermilk Handcrafted Food, Lila SRQ, Indigenous, Louies Modern, State Street Eating House, and Giorgio’s on Hillview
