UT Law Student Presentation

Thanks to a connection through the University of Tennessee (UT) Center for Profitable Agriculture, Rooted Here was able to work with four UT Law students, William Calla, Shravan Malaney, James Hargis, and Meagan Davis, to determine the best tax structure for our organization. The students met with members of the Rooted Here Board during the semester to learn about the organization and our needs and desires. They then presented their recommendations last Wednesday. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend that presentation. Full text of their recommendations are posted on our website. To summarize, they recommended that Rooted Here become a Limited Liability Company. We are incredibly grateful for this collaboration and the excellent work of the students. Our next steps will be to work with our members to determine how we will use these recommendations and proceed. If you are interested in working with us on this, please consider becoming a member!

Turner and Sons from McMinnville have plenty of gallons and quarts on the market. Martínez Produce from McMinnville surprised us last week with their first picking of berries and are back again this week. Last but not least, Fountain Springs in Morrison also has large, sweet, juicy berries.
Lynn Blankenship of Dayspring Farm in Altamont says that they will be taking some steers to be processed on Tuesday. These steers have been raised according to American Grass-fed Association standards:
  • Diet — Animals are fed only grass and forage from weaning until harvest.
  • Confinement — Animals are raised on pasture without confinement to feedlots.
  • Antibiotics and hormones — Animals are never treated with antibiotics or growth hormones.
  • Origin — All animals are born and raised on American family farms (Dayspring Farm to be exact).
Beef from these animals will be on the market in about 3 weeks. Custom cuts can be ordered through the market for a $5 deposit. If you have questions about the end cost of these cuts please contact Lynn by email or phone (615-400-6998) and she will provide more information.
