Ceres & Co.

USDA certified organic truck farm, greenhouse and beef operation. We use biodynamic organic principles and are USDA certified organic. Located in North Central Indiana.

NEW!! Grassfed beef. First butchering is complete, and frozen packaged beef is now available. Inquire about cuts.

Greenhouse plants: Email me for link to my downloadable greenhouse plant catalog. Over 50 unique and delicious heirloom tomato plants, plus peppers (hot and sweet), basil and other herbs, and many pickling cukes. Try my Suze Goldberg Fermenting Jar for making delicious, crunchy homemade pickles.

Market baskets available - you will receive about 20% more produce by letting us choose, rather than buying products individually. Will work with you to get a mix that suits you each week. May be picked up at the farm near Walkerton, IN, at the South Bend Farmers Market or at Purple Porch Co-op in South Bend. Also, if you do a lot of preserving, let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate your needs with extra produce during canning & freezing season.
