Windy River Eco Farm formerly Grandma's Garden

Windy River Eco Farm is a small one-woman farm using chemical free and sustainable techniques, with an emphasis on flavorful heirloom varieties. A large variety of tasty crops are grown so the season is well-supplied. You can expect an average of 6-10 different items in your weekly share. E-newsletters will describe the weekly basket of produce and give tips and recipes for delicious, gourmet meals. Some of the feature crops are juicy, flavorful heirloom tomatoes in various shapes and colors, big onions, garlic, leeks, fingerling potatoes, peppers, herbs, and colored carrots. Flower shares are available. I choose the crops by taste and try to grow things I think will be enjoyed. However, if there are a number of vegetables you don't like, a CSA may not be for you. Please read the CSA information pages on this website. I am committed to helping improve the way Americans eat. Choose local, fresh, healthy real food! Teaching gardening classes on site this summer. I sell heirloom tomato and pepper plants each spring. Many wonderful and rare varieties. I sell fresh produce, baked, dried and canned goods at the Monticello Farmers' Market. I use only non-GMO ingredients! Contact me about ordering chemical free produce at any time. I do not compete for canning tomato prices with local large businesses. I don't grow "canning tomatoes" but wonderful heirloom tomatoes. If you are interested in spending as little as possible on good quality chemical free produce you can have it real cheap if you come pick it yourself.
