Good food, good growing, good friends, good fun. The only closer connection is in your back yard. Shares are delivered on Wednesdays to Old Louisville, on Saturdays to the East End of Louisville, and available at the farm either day. We offer a 15-week Summer share, a 24-week Full share, an egg share, a cut flower share, meat chickens, and a Winter share. Potluck celebrations are held twice a year on the farm, on the Saturdays closest to the solstice and equinox. A talented food writer/shareholder emails weekly recipe ideas with what's in the box. Ten CSA members work at least 4 hours week. We believe in comraderie. In its tenth year, our CSA is a lively community of wonderful people participating in the creation of its food. The farm is located in Henry County, Kentucky, about 45 minutes from downtown Louisville. Most of the land is steep rolling pasture and woods. Annual production takes place on a few acres of beautiful, gently-sloping ridgetops. We practice contour plowing, extensive green manure/cover cropping, spreading composted manures, and mulching with straw to minimize erosion. No synthetic chemicals are used and fossil fuel use is very limited. Harvest is divided into equal shares with very little waste. We invite members to come and certify for themselves. Diversity and community is the key to success of this CSA. We plant hundreds of varieties of vegetables, herbs and flowers. Whatever the wacky weather, many crops thrive and provide the bounty. Periodic newsletters chronicle the saga. Food that has a familiar story tastes better.

This was the first CSA my girlfriend and I tried in 2010, and we really enjoyed it. We fell in love with the okra, hot peppers, garlic scapes, and all the wonderful produce Courtney and Carden provided for us.... [more]
