Green Dirt Farm is a small sheep dairy located just outside of Weston on the picturesque bluffs above the Missouri River.  This working farm produces farmstead sheep's milk cheeses, yogurt and 100% grass-fed lamb.  Green Dirt Farm holds to the tradition of community-based farms where customers can know how their food was produced, and who produced it.



Green Dirt Farm's Principles:

• We are firmly committed to the idea that a foundation of healthy living soil is the key to growing nutritious grass, happy animals, and satisfied customers.
• We do not use pesticides or herbicides on our pastures; or hormones or unnecessary antibiotics in raising our animals.  Antibiotics are only used when necessary to treat sick animals.
• We protect our grasses from overgrazing by rotating the sheep to fresh grass every day.
• We actively promote the return of diverse and indigenous, soil-building plant species to our pastures.
• We have and use numerous renewable energy sources on the farm, including passive solar, active solar, wind electricity generation and solar hot water.
• We built our farm with state-of-the-art efficiency that helps to conserve resources and protects our water shed.
• We believe that our customers have the right to know everything about what goes into their food and how it was produced.

McCormick is the oldest distillery in the United States operating at it original site. In 1976, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. Lewis and Clark discovered natural limestone springs in the rolling hills of Missouri. By 1830 these pure springs were supplying water to wagon trains heading west. Years later Ben Holladay saw these limestone springs as the ingredient for great whiskey needed to supply the vast number of wagon trains passing through Weston desiring good whiskey. In 1856 he started his distillery. The tours at the distillery were discontinued in 1995.

The McCormick Country Store was relocated to Main Street and sells all McCormick products and gift items; a 25¢ sample bar for customers over 21 years of age.
