Here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions:
What are you growing on your farm?
Shiitake and oyster mushrooms, beans, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, radishes, beets, lettuce, spinach, swiss chard, garlic, onions…
…strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, gooseberries, apples (several varieties!)…
…mint, basil, lavender, oregano, chives…
Most of our plants are grown from our own collection of heirloom seeds and our gardening practices are as natural as possible using no synthetic herbicides or pesticides. We are USDA Certified Organic.
Do you have anything other than fresh produce?
Yes, we have processed jams and jellies, maple syrup, honey, flowers, and handcrafted items for your home available seasonally.
Where can we find you?
At the Rowan County Farmers’ Market during summer. We also be set up at the First Friday events at the Rowan County Arts Center and the Kentucky Proud Expo in Morehead, KY in April. And, of course, you can always buy our produce and products at our farm!
What are your future plans?
To provide our customers with the quality produce and products they deserve. To keep adding to our bank of heirloom seeds and add to the variety of fresh produce we grow. To grow our maple syrup operation and produce larger quantities of syrup. To share our knowledge and love of farming and the outdoors with others via workshops on the farm. We have offered CSA shares for a couple of years, and we hope to do that again in the future and see it take off, but we are taking a break from the CSA for now.
Why be a farmer these days?
To know and understand where our food comes from and what agricultural practices were implemented on it during the growing process seems more important than ever. To show our children the importance of farmers and local food in the community so they grow up with that value ingrained in them, and to be able to provide quality products to the people in our community.
