East West Farm is a pasture based, all natural, family farm near Atlanta, GA in Cobb County. Daniel and Katie Seedorf are the husband/wife team that’s keeping the family farm alive in an area that used to be purely agrarian, but now pasture land has been built out with shopping malls and subdivisions.
Daniel and Katie are the parents of Sarah, David, James, and Ryan. Their last name is not the only thing unusual about them, they’re actually natives of Cobb County, which these days seems rare to find. Daniel is a full time fire fighter, and the only thing he enjoys more than farming is being a dad to his kids. Katie is a full time mother, teacher, chef, homemaker, assistant farmer and when Daniel is at the fire station, she runs the farm with a little help from the kids.
About five years ago they came to realize that there is something bad wrong with food today. First they switched to raw milk, then they discovered farm fresh eggs and grass fed meats. It didn’t take long for them to decide that farming was to be their chosen lifestyle so they could provide their family with the healthiest foods possible, have a positive impact on the environment and share their bounty with those who understand that it takes more than a USDA stamp to ensure food is safe and healthy.
East West farm got it’s name from Psalm 103:11-12 “…as far as the East is from the West, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” You honestly can’t get any farther apart as the East is from the West, and those who choose to love God know that is how far their sins are removed by Him. As far as the East is from the West is also how far removed from the industrial food system we desire to be.
