Earthkeeper Farm

We grow about 8 acres of Stellar Certified Organic vegetables, fruits, and flowers which are sold at the Rockford and Ada Farmer's Market, through our CSA, and to local restaurants. Everything on the farm is grown using organic and biodynamic practices. Our farm respects and preserve the environment, with a focus on rebuilding top soil and preserving biodiversity. This season we are growing over 60 different crops with over 150 different varieties. Our farm hosts volunteers through WWOOF, Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms. In this program, we accept volunteers from near and far, exchanging room, board, and education for help in the fields. More details on our growing practices, CSA, and volunteer opportunities can be found on our website.

I have been a CSA member for the past three years. Before that, I was a regular customer at the Rockford farmer's market - always stopping at the Earthkeeper booth first.... [more]

First of all, let me say I was SHOCKED to see someone give this farm 1 star! I cannot imagine someone interpreting Earthkeeper's CSA in that light. That being said, if someone has had a poor experience or expectations weren't being met, I know for a fact that Rachelle and Andrew would be more than willing to hear someone out and see where improvements could be made....

The first time I tried an Earthkeeper carrot, I exclaimed, "so this is what a carrot is supposed to taste like!" Insert that exclamation for any produce I've tasted from them.... [more]
