Book a farm-stay through our website or find us us on Airbnb for a true farm experience! We use natural farming practices to grow crops in both fields and greenhouses. In addition, there are several hiking trails on this 130 acre farm located near Hot Springs in Madison County with a quick drive to Max Patch. We have an acre under cultivation for fruits and veggies, plus another 5 acres of pastured raised livestock who we rotate among small paddocks. While we are a very small scale farm, we have wide diversity of fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers that we sell through our CSA and are able to offer our guests. In addition, you'll find our pastured raised beef and pork available from our online store throughout the year - so check our website for availability. Gardeners - in the spring, we offer transplants of vegetables, culinary and medicinal herbs and flowers that are adapted to our climate. Visit us at area tailgate markets or enjoy our food by purchasing one of our CSA shares. We host private event at our farm so please visit our website to learn more about our accommodations and atmosphere.

Our season is June through October for 20 weeks. Shareholders may custom order their weekly share or purchase a traditional CSA share (Farmer's Choice) priced at $20/week. No prepayment is required for the season, we just ask for commitment from shareholders to purchase weekly, with a minimum $15 weekly order. Payments can be made with either cash or credit card through our secure website. Weekly, we update our online store with availability and send an eNewsletter, which is a reminder for the shareholder to place their weekly order. While CSA shareholders may be out of town during the season, we encourage them to either gift their share to another family, or have another family purchase their share for the weeks they're gone. We deliver Wednesday so that you'll have your groceries before the weekend.
