Hillbilly Farms

We are a small scale CSA specializing in herbs, vegetables, eggs, poultry and pork products, however we do offer other options when requested.

Make us your Farm.

We raise animals by contract. If you do not want an entire animal we pair you up with others who also want portions of the same animal.

In 2009 we started raising heirloom vegetables, herbs, and poultry. These are also be available by contract, through the CSA, and on the Front Porch Farm Stand. 3, 6, and 12 month shares are available

Working shares are available.

Hillbilly Farms was founded by the La Chey family when Jim retired from the US Army. We have continually worked toward a sustainable farm system, which can be quite challenging.

We currently offer 10 egg shares. Egg shares are currently available at a cost of $127.00 (1 dozen per week for 26 weeks).

Nutritionally balanced, 1 full vegetable share is designed to meet the needs suggested by Choose My Plate (Choosemyplate.gov) weekly in each category (Leafy greens, Beans/legumes, Starchy, Red/orange, miscellaneous). Vegetarian shares are also available which offer about 2.7 the typical volume and accommodate the needs for complimentary proteins in the diet. Food may be provided fresh, dried, or canned. See the listing for pricing. As we grow in a high tunnel greenhouse in the winter, shares are available year round. There are 15 shares available.

At the request of shareholders we had a great time on Thursday mornings in 2013 processing and preserving food for use over the winter. We offered food preservation classes for a fee at the Cumberland Green Farmers Market and free classes once a month at the Woodland Park Farmers Market in 2014.

Second Try

2014-03-24

I am happy to report that the result with half of the salt was wonderful. The flavor is even throughout and there is no mold development. 

The flavor is bland. This is a great cheese to use in cream soups as there is no distracting flavor added, just the creamy thickening qualities.
