Spring-summer, 2016 Frostfire Farm -- Small family farm and CSA; eggs, wool, herbs, berries & lots of vegetables!
I sell fine wool and wool products from my Merino-cross sheep, and eggs from my large free-range flock of hens. I also offer vegetables, herbs and berries from my organically-managed hoophouse and large garden. CSA shares are available for the summer and I accept WIC coupons and vouchers and SNAP/EBT at Union Farmers Market. Sheep, chickens and 1 acre market garden thrive in a beautiful long meadow near the Medomak River in Union's north corner.There are hiking trails through the woods, fishing in season; workshops and farm visits available. Learn to care for animals and grow your own food, herbs and flowers in a simple, peaceful setting.
In Frostfire Farm's CSA, members receive the best and freshest food possible and the grower gets to know the folks eating the crops. Members become part of a local farm where crops are grown naturally, in a way that heals our Earth and keeps us healthy. We all learn about eating locally and seasonally.
I grow the most beautiful, delicious and nutritious varieties of produce I can find, with no chemicals added. But remember-- "An organic farm, properly speaking, is not one that uses certain methods and substances and avoids others; it is a farm whose structure is formed in imitation of the structure of a natural system that has the integrity, the independence and the benign dependence of an organism" - Wendell Berry, "The Gift of Good Land"
