Also the farm is not well marked, there are no u-pick signs until you get to the farm. It is about 2 miles out Caney Creek Road.

At Dazi Acres, we produce high quality, healthy food the natural way. We don’t use chemicals, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, or harmful fertilizers. We are stewards of the land on which we grow and raise food, and we conserve, and in most cases, enhance the land on which we are fortunate enough to farm. We grow produce from organic seeds, never GMO seeds. Peaches, pears, apples, blackberries, blueberries, grapes grow naturally and abundantly around the farm. Behind our cattle, we raise Cornish Cross broiler chickens in movable shelters to protect them from predators while also limiting the time they spend in one pasture spot. The chickens move daily, providing the soil with just enough nitrogen to enhance soil conditions while offering the chickens a veritable smorgasbord of bugs and grasses to complement their organic feed. Unlike store bought chickens, our broilers are not raised in crowded, stressful, smelly chicken houses in which farmers have to wear masks to breathe and contamination suits to protect themselves. When you visit our farm, you won’t find offensive smells, sights, or sounds. The moment you step out of your car at our farm to purchase a chicken, try our Spa Collection of handmade soaps and bath products, grab a basket of tomatoes, or to pick your own blackberries and raspberries, you’ll find the same slice of heaven that we discovered the day we stepped out of our car to look at buying it. This is our gift to you: Healthy, quality food grown and raised in a little corner of the world that we keep peaceful and beautiful, far enough from the hustle and bustle of suburban and urban life for us to appreciate its wonder. And we think you will too. So come visit Dazi Acres Farm for naturally grown, farm fresh food. David and Suzanne Eltz. (ADDED: June 06, 2013)
