Inyoni Organic Farm is a 10-acre USDA certified organic farm founded and actively run by Nick & Natalie Batty. Tucked away down a dirt road in East Naples, Inyoni Farms produces up to 50 different varieties of organically grown and harvested vegetables, herbs, flowers and fruit. With the warm Florida weather, the farm enjoys a long growing season from October to June. All vegetables, herbs and flowers are nurtured from seed, and being organic, all produce is grown without the use of conventional pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. The daily harvest of vine-ripened produce allows for a rich flavor and provides customers with tasty, fresh produce.
Located in North Fort Myers, all ingredients from 12 Seasons Farm are naturally grown using organic practices. This farm specializes in heirloom tomatoes, strawberries, citrus, cucumbers, bell peppers, free range eggs and other seasonally delectable fruits and vegetables.
The citrus selection from 12 Seasons Farm includes tangelos, mid-sweet oranges, navel oranges, tangerines, pomelo and limes. All citrus is UNwaxed and UNtreated, a rarity in the citrus industry and ensures the best quality and cleanest fruit possible.
The pastured raised chickens that live a very happy life at 12 Seasons Farm receive only organic feed along with the produce grown on the farm that doesn’t make the cut for market sales and the chickens are allowed to forage for critters as nature intended. The eggs these ladies produce are an amazing treat that will be featured at this dinner and are also available at our Locally Grown Produce Market held each Wednesday at Purple Spoon.
On a tranquil 10 acre farm in North Fort Myers, all animals at Asbury Acres are raised free range and allowed to pasture graze as natured intended.

There are actually bison living, and thriving, in Southern Florida!! And Three Suns Ranch is the 5700 acre grazing territory of these magnificent animals located in Punta Gorda. The ranch also raises cattle and works with local trappers to bring in wild hogs. What sets Three Suns Ranch truly apart from the other farms that specialize in pasture raised animal meats is their on-property USDA certified processing facility – the bison and cows go directly from the pastures where they graze to harvest, never enduring the trauma of transport to an off site processing facility. The animals raised and processed at Three Suns Ranch never encounter any hormone or antibiotic treatments as part of the ranch’s dedication to organic farming methods. The meats packaged at Three Suns Ranch are driven to our kitchen at Purple Spoon where they are available for retail purchase at the exact same prices the on-ranch farm store offers in Punta Gorda.
