We are a small family farm that began in late 2007. We started Down to Earth Farm because we believe in the importance of vibrant, local, sustainably-grown agriculture. Our goal is to grow healthy, delicious veggies in a manner that is gentle on our planet. This means using compost and OMRI listed products instead of petroleum based fertilizers to feed our plants, using organic potting soil, and fighting bugs and disease with responsible techniques such as crop rotation and regular scouting. We use no chemical pesticides or herbicides. We grow a wide variety of vegetables that we sell through the Green Market in Neptune Beach (Sat. 2-5pm) or at the Riverside Arts Market (Sat 10-4) seasonally (Our season here in NE Florida runs approximately from November through June). We also have a small CSA for the ease of a weekly share of fresh food and connection to your farmer.
We have a few shares left for our 2011-2012 CSA season! The cost is $625 for the season and runs about 30 weeks. Pickups are at the Riverside Arts Market starting in late November.

My job requires a lot of travel, and whenever I'm in a new city, I try to visit a local farm/CSA and sample the produce. I heard a lot of buzz about "Down to Earth" when I was in Jacksonville, FL, so I stopped by and bought some vegetables to use in my home cooking.... [more]

I just recently moved to Jacksonville from Marin County California, the home of so many wonderful farmers' markets. I was worried that I would have a hard if not impossible time finding the same quality of produce here.... [more]
