Crisp Lettuce, Juicy Tomatoes, and Sweet Squash are only a sampling of the many types of produce our farm offers. Each summer we can be found at farmers markets and if you want to guarantee you have the best every week you can join our CSA and experience agriculture in a new way! We use natural methods throughout our operation and if you ever have a question about how we do something, ask. Above everything else, we believe in transparency so you can have confidence in your food!
In that vein of thought, if you have bought something from us and are puzzled about how to use it or even what it is we hope to be completing a product/produce identification gallery to this site for the 2013 season! If you want to check out our progress so far and add your own comments to any veggies you have had from us you can take a peek at our new veggies page!

Our favorite food off our farm is our large brown eggs! Our hens are allowed outside as weather and circumstance permit (as well as any time the goats let them out!). While we did have totally free range hens the coyotes in the area ate all the hens over only a few nights so now our birds have a more moderate amount of freedom with the trade off that they stay alive! Please see our CSA page for information on egg shares.
When we started our first hive, it was because we did not have enough pollinating insects to grow most common vegetables. However, once we got our first taste of our honey there was no turning back! Right now we are wintering two hives and hope to expand to four next year. We have a limited quantity of honey available as our bees provide us with a harvest.
