Please check out our CSA page here on Local Harvest.  We still have openings and several different options for sizes, prices, days, and locations.

Misty Meadows Farm is the oldest running CSA in the Louisville, Kentucky area; we are going into our 11th year.

While we used to be Certified Organic, we choose to spend time farming and not doing all the required paperwork, so therefore we call ourselves Naturally Grown now.  We do all of our practices by the same high standards that we've always done.  No pesticides, no chemicals, no antibiotics, no hormones, no MSG, etc.  We pride ourselves on hard work ethics and a love of the land that God so graciously has loaned to us.

Come and join our CSA family and see what we're about.

We welcome visitors (with advance notice please).

Is It Really Spring?

For the past two weeks, we have been enjoying seasonably warm weather for the Ohio River Valley, so much so that things have been getting done "down on the farm". 

Onions are planted, both green and sweet and red, peas are planted and poking through, carrots are in, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and peppers will be planted this weekend (hopefully).  Tomatoes are started, blackberries need thinning..buds on the trees....yes, I'd say Spring is happening.

Last Saturday, March 20th was the first day of spring.  I will always remember that because that's the day that our youngest was born (she's now 29!)  But I always liken Spring to New beginnings, rebirths.  Good for the heart, good for the soul. 

Yesterday, it turned pretty cold and I had to peek again at the calendar to make sure it really is Spring.  Lows this morning close to 30....I pray that we don't have a freeze or frost, although pretty much everything that is growing right now will survive this sudden cold. 

I expect any day now I'll see little chicks running around the farm chasing after their mothers, while they're mothers keep that ever watchful eye on them.  Then I will know that spring is truly here. 

I have seen daffodils blooming in other parts of the county, but for some reason they are always late bloomers here.  Perhaps they are waiting until all is said and done and that's fine with me.

So Happy Spring to everyone and may we enjoy the fruits of our labors this year!
