We are Mom & Pop, Hops & Crops, let me introduce us-I am Carol Blumberg, my husband Tom and I live in the Northeast corner of Kent County. We have lived in our 100+ year old farmhouse since 1966. We delayed starting our farming practices for two years while Tom served in the Army and also in Vietnam. When he came home we started farming, raising feeder pigs, field crops and a super large garden. I raised our three beautiful daughters with my wonderful husband Tom on our farm. When the girls were little and as they grew, we all worked on the farm together, in the fields as well as in the gardens. All of our food was grown in the garden and canned with the same love and care we put into raising the girls.
God has made us stewards of our land and we feel we need to share our bounty and the knowledge of what healthy organic eating can do for your body. We believe we are putting together what in our hearts are some of the best naturally grown produce and products that can be grown. We want to share with you this Healthy Produce. All of our produce is grown by Nop Standards, MAEAP verified, Non-GMO being chemically free. We are proud of this fact. We want you to be more than just a customer. We want you to be a part of our agricultural family. Our philosophy is the following; "We are all travelers from the point of birth to the point of final destiny. We hope that somehow or in someway we have instilled within you the desire to return". Other farms may offer similar produce, but our produce is grown by NOP standard,MAEAP verified and Non-GMO and harvested at their peak to give you the highest quality, ultimate freshness and flavor, and it comes with the down on the farm personal touch.
We are happy to introduce you to a world of Healthy Eating by joining our CSA (Community Support Agriculture). We take great pride in offering you our produce, everything from dried and fresh herbs to juicy plump tomatoes and beyond. We will also be adding to your bounty a few natural homemade surprises each month. Come into our world, a world that delights the senses and the appetite. Come, be a part of our Family.
We will be taking orders for our CSA starting January 1, 2014. The share will be in full share at $500 for the entire season, which includes one/half bushel of a wide variety of produce each week. $250 for half shares which includes one/fourth bushel of a wide variety of produce each week, this works more for a smaller family. Pickup will be on Thursday late morning or afternoon, with produce being picked fresh Thursday morning.
We will be doing everything we can do to make it a perfect growing season, but with CSAs we all take a risk, as it is with any farming. If we have a bountiful season we all share in the bounty. If Mother Nature doesn't smile down on us we all share in the risk. This is what will make us all closer in the farming community.
Please call us at (616) 984-2132 if you are interested, we would love to have you be a part of our farm family and share with healthy, fresh organic produce. Once a month there will be a surprise in your basket from us.
