Every week during the Indy Winter Farmers Market season, we’ll be profiling one of our local vendors! You can find the full list of IWFM vendors and past profiles here.
Becker Farms, 3rd season at IWFM
Kyle and Emily Becker established their farm in the small town of Mooreland, located in northeast Henry County. Starting in 2007 with grass-fed, high quality, safe freezer beef, their operation has since grown to include chicken, turkey, pigs, lamb, goats, rabbits, ducks, hens. And if that wasn’t enough, Becker Farms also grows a variety of produce.
What do you love most about IWFM? We love the variety and quality of vendors at the IWFM–patrons can find a wonderful assortment of meats, produce, soaps, ice cream, baked goos, and much more.
What is your most popular item? Our customers tend to stock up on whole chickens during the winter months–perfect for roasting or putting in the crock pot and making favorite dishes such as soups, casseroles, and pot pie.
What is something most people don’t know about you? We have a dream of retiring on a dairy farm on the back side of Maui!
What is your favorite local restaurant? It is so hard to choose just one, but we are glad that we found Bakersfield–we are big fans of their fish tacos, quest dip, and black beans.
What is your favorite thing to do in Indy in the winter? Since we do not live in Indy, it is enjoyable for us to simply walk around, stop for a coffee and a pastry, and take in all of the pretty lights.
What is your favorite holiday recipe? Sweet potato casserole and turkey!
