Our 130 acre farm located near Hot Springs in Madison County currently has 1 acre under cultivation which allow us to produce a wide diversity of fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. We offer pastured pork throughout the year so check our website for availability of our fresh meats. In the spring, we offer transplants for vegetables, culinary and medicinal herbs and flowers that are adapted to our climate. We use natural farming practices to grow in both fields and greenhouses. Visit us at area tailgate markets or enjoy our food by purchasing one of our CSA shares. Look for us on AirBnB for a true farm experience! We host private parties at our farm so please visit our website to learn more about our accommodations.

Our season is June through October for 20 weeks. We offer the traditional CSA share priced at $20/week. Shareholders may supplement their weekly share with additional produce and meats that are in abundance. No prepayment is required for the season, we just ask for commitment from shareholders to purchase weekly. 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 their gone. We deliver Thursdays so that you'll have your groceries just before the weekend.
