We believe what we do should go full circle. We seek to honor God by being wise stewards of the land and respecting it by using renewable resources GMO Free and organic products to raise our food. The animals work in harmony with the land and vegetables. Each feeds the other. The extra eggs go to the chickens the pigs plow the fields and the vegetables feed the chickens and pigs. The animals are rotated around the land to provide fertility control bugs and enjoy a varied diet. The food is grown in different plots giving time to rest the land and allow it to renew itself. Together they provide top quality meat, eggs, and produce. The boxes vary through the seasons and offer a unique story about the farm and its glory. We offer you the best of each season inside your boxes. Boxes are for sale seasonally. This is a real blessing to both the giver and the receiver. We need each other to make a commitment for the season so we can provide you with these healthy foods and you can receive them. Real food for real people. We seek to honor god, his people and his creation! You can expect to find a variety of food to feed your family a healthy diet clean of GMO and filled with fresh nutrient dense foods. The work we do is a labor of love for the land, the animals, and the people.

Our Growing Methods:

Our Family Farm believes firmly in the principles and practices of organic agriculture.

  • We use only untreated vegetable seeds and source organic seeds when possible.

  • We grow many heirloom seeds from seeds we have saved and support SSE.

  • We use organic potting soils for all transplant production.

  • All of our purchased fertilizers are approved by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and come from natural, renewable sources.We use fertility recommendations from soil tests as well as farmer intuition to provide plant fertility requirements.

  • We use no synthetic sprays (no pesticides, herbicides or fungicides) and we only use pest control products approved by OMRI as a means of last resort.

  • We use biological inoculants to combat plant diseases.

  • We grow green manures to enhance soil biology and to protect the ground from eroding winds and rains, especially in winter.

  • We encourage pollinator habitat on our farm by growing pollinator-attracting plants.

  • We recycle all drip tape irrigation plastic and greenhouse plastic.

  • All of our produce is washed with filtered-water. Our irrigation water is free from contaminants.

  • We harvest and sell our produce at the peak of its health and quality, ensuring the highest nutritive content, the best visible, taste and handling qualities and the lack of uptake from natural nitrate pollutants in winter.
