At FMO, we pride ourselves on being a market created by integrity and trust. This is why FMO conducts annual inspections with our vendors to ensure food safety and integrity behind our product brand. Our inspections take us over the river and through the woods, and into the barnyards, kitchens and workshops of some great local people – like the Hamilton Lor of Good Luck Farm in Ash Grove, MO!
Good Luck Farm has almost three acres of garden space, where Hamilton Lor and his family grow beautiful vegetables, strawberries, and flowers to bring to FMO. Hamilton has been farming for most of his life, and loves being able to connect with his roots by gardening with his family, and raising their chickens and cattle. The gardens on Good Luck Farm are carefully maintained, especially for weed prevention – Hamilton mulches the plants with old hay to smother the weeds. This also has the added benefit of adding organic matter back into the garden, which helps keep Hamilton’s soil healthy.
Good Luck Farm grows a vast amount of produce varieties – some of the highlights on the farm include their bitter melon tunnel, and their huge asparagus patch. Come spring, you will see Hamilton and his family at market with plenty of asparagus!
