USDA Stellar Certified Organic Produce from Earthkeeper Farm
At Earthkeeper Farm, we grow food sustainably, using only organic and biodynamic growing practices. We strive to create a balanced farm ecosystem, which naturally keeps disease and pests under control. Biodiversity, environmental protection, building healthy soil, and commitment to a local food system are a few key elements of the farm.
We grow Stellar Certified Organic vegetables, fruits, and flowers. The majority of our harvest is vegetables, of which we grow a wide variety. Including over 50 different crops with over 150 different varieties.
We welcome volunteers and visitors. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have! We look forward to meeting you!
For family and spiritual reasons, we are scaling the farm back significantly for the 2014 season. We will only be doing one farmers market. And there will only be CSA work shares available.
Next season, there will be no paid CSA memberships. Members can commit to work on the farm raising and harvesting the food, in exchange they can take whatever their family wants. In this way, we can build on our values of community and cooperation, in an even more authentic and intentional way.
After next year, we intend to scale back up with more farmers markets and paid CSA memberships.
The decision to scale back is for both spiritual and family reasons. In the Jewish faith, there is a ancient practice known as the Seventh Year Fallow. In accordance with the bible, the farmer does not grow anything on the land in its seventh year. Coincidentally, next summer is our seventh season on this land. We are not Jewish, and think of ourselves as spiritual more then religious. But it seems that forces are encouraging us to take up the practice of the seventh year fallow in our own way.
We thank you so much for your support! We value the community that has been built on and around the farm. There will still be opportunities to visit and volunteer. And we hope to see you at the farmers market!
