White Sand Homestead
Lamb, pork, and eggs, oh my! White Sand Homestead Farm joined CCFM just before the New Year, and we are so glad they did! Run by Aaron Snelling and his father, White Sand Homestead Farm began as a pecan orchard five years ago and has since grown into a small farm. Aaron was inspired to make a difference after his experiences in the farm, food, and service industries and now uses sustainable techniques and organic principles on his farm. Aaron’s pigs eat pecans, acorns, and various forage plants like daikon or mustard greens while exploring and living happily on the acres of the farm! White Sand Homestead Farm is eager to join the CCFM community and share their high-quality products with all customers! Find them at every Sunday City Park Market, offering a delicious variety of exceptional meats and eggs.
The Crescent City Farmers Market operates weekly year-round throughout New Orleans. The CCFM hosts 70+ local small farmers, fishers, and food producers, and more than 150,000 shoppers annually.
