The benefits of participating in a CSA are many. As a member you will not only enjoy all of the food but you will also know exactly where your food is grown and who grows it. All of our produce is organically grown, which means no pesticides and no herbicides. In a time of increasingly industrialized food production and the environmental problems that accompany it, won’t it be good to know where your food is coming from? All of the certified organic produce that goes into your box is grown right here on our farm in College Grove, TN.
All of the food produced on our farm is certified organic or transitional organic, starting from seed grown in our greenhouses, transplanted to our fields and then harvested especially for your family’s dining pleasure. (transitional organic are fields we use organic methods for growing but are new fields to the farm and working through the certification process). We are committed to growing the freshest, most vibrant, nutritionally dense food possible for our customers. By growing our food with certified organic methods, you know that your food is being produced in the most environmentally friendly conditions.
During the course of a season we raise over 50 varieties of vegetables that will go into our CSA box. Each box will have from 6 to 12 varieties of farm fresh, “picked at peak of harvest” vegetables. Our season will start out with kales, collards, brocolli, cabbage, onions, lettuces and other cool season greens. Summer brings us into the tomatoes, peppers, corn, melons, cantaloupe, blackberries, potatoes, squashes, cucumbers, beans and eggplants. Fall will wrap up the season with favorites like sweet potatoes, butternut, acorn squash, pumpkins, arugula, tatsoi, kales, and other greens.
