p>We grow everything here 100% naturally, use NO pesticides and NO chemicals for anything. We were Certified Organic by OCIA in the spring of 2000. At this time we're exempt from USDA organic certification, but we've always grown according to federal USDA NOP and National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) standards, and will always continue to do so.
We harvest 11 acres of organic alfalfa & clover and after frost we grow herbs & winter hardy vegetables in our geodesic dome greenhouse. We also offer fresh multi-colored pastured 'No Kill' eggs from our lovely feathered ladies.
Our LOCAL HARVEST mail-order store is ready to serve you! Catnip Farm, via Local Harvest, offers the BEST ORGANIC CATNIP in the world, as well as Cat Toys & a variety of Pet + Cat Grass seeds (please read our testimonials!), catnip seeds, and other wonderful heirloom garden seeds.
All proceeds from Catnip Farm on-line product sales via Local Harvest go to spay/neuter and veterinary expenses for rescued stray, feral and special needs cats here in Iowa and elsewhere.
We never butcher our hens or roosters, as most organic farms do. They live out their natural lifespan here in comfort & safety, no matter their laying capacity.
Our growing techniques include raised & terraced bed & row planting, composting, crop rotation, companion and inter-planting, mulching & recycling.
Thank you for visiting, and please take a look at our store ~ especially if you love kitties!
