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 will also be available by contract, through the CSA, and on the Front Porch Farm Stand in 2011. It is suggested you contact us by March to place orders. 3month, and 6 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.

3 egg shares are currently available at a cost of $100.00 (1 dozen per week for 26 weeks).

Our goal is to supply half of the vegetables an individual should consume in a year, approximately 225 lbs.

2013 shareholders received 260 lbs over the growing season which included approximately: 2 lbs garlic 5 lbs onion 5 lbs green beans 47 lbs zucchini squash 5 lbs kohlrabi 25 lbs beets 2 lbs herbs 36 lbs acorn squash 21 lbs carrots 6 lbs radishes 7 lbs lettuce 5 lbs turbin squash 7 lbs spinach 13 lbs turnips 35 lbs spaghetti squash 42 lbs pumpkin 2 lbs lemon cucumbers 2 lbs mustard greens

At the request of shareholders we had a great time on Thrusday mornings in 2013 processing and preserving food for use over the winter.

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.
