Where is your farm located?
We are located just west of historic Waynesville, Ohio on 35 acres. Our family has owned the farm for over 30 years.
What do you grow?
We grow a wide variety of vegetables as well as strawberries, blackberries and other fruits. We also grow cows, pigs, and chickens, but our most important crop is grandchildren.
Did you grow all this yourself?
We did! We pride ourselves on producing all the produce we sell. Using organic seed when available, we start all our own plants in our greenhouse so that we can know what is going into our products.
With the addition of the Farm Club we have added some products that are produced off farm(honey, for example). We choose these products with care, from other local artisans and farms. Anything that wasn’t raised by us will be labeled as such.
Are you organic?
We are not “certified” as organic. Our products are raised using practices and methods that meet or exceed organic protocols. You can read more about our growing practices here.
What do you do in the winter?
Although typically considered a downtime for farming, we have recently started producing vegetables longer into the season, some crops being available nearly all winter long. We also have animals to tend, planning next seasons crops, seed buying etc.
Are the vegetables washed?
Most of the vegetables are rinsed with water after harvest. Some require additional washing such as potatoes or carrots. There are those that are typically not washed such as tomatoes since washing can affect the quality. We recommend that all our vegetables be washed before use.
When will you have (insert fruit or vegetable name here)…?
We work very hard to extend the seasons as well as grow as many things as possible. Both a challenge and a treat is the seasonality of growing local food. We consider it an adventure to walk through the garden each day to see what has changed and what is ready, realizing that everything has a season, including each of us.
