(Americus,KS)Located in the flint hills tall grass prairie of east central Kansas, Shepherd's Valley is a family owned diversified farm featuring organically grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs, direct marketed to consumers through three seasonal CSA subscription share programs. The Spring CSA share runs 8 weeks from early April through May. The main season Summer Share runs 17 weeks from early June through September. The Fall Share extends the season from early October to the week before Thanksgiving. Our Winter Green fresh salad greens and cold-hardy crops are available locally on an "as-we-have-it" basis. We have been providing wholesome foods to our customers using chemical-free, biologically sound methods for over 35 years. We follow organic and sustainable principles in all aspects of the farm. Shepherd's Valley raises pastured poultry including broilers, heritage turkeys, and farm fresh eggs. Customers tell us our broilers remind them of that old-fashioned chicken flavor they remember when they were kids - "just like Grandma used to serve." Our pampered hens lay gorgeous brown eggs and specialty gourmet eggs that are a real treat - delighting bakers, chefs, and breakfast eaters. Heritage breeds and broad-breasted bronze turkeys are raised for the Thanksgiving table. Like all of our poultry, these big beautiful birds are raised on lush green pastures and fed certified organic grains and trace mineral supplements. No vaccinations, antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, or medicated feeds are used in the production of our birds. Grass fed Corriedale sheep and lambs provide our customers with premium table fare and beautiful handspinner's wool. Our lambs are 100% naturally grown on Psalm 23 green pastures and hay. Everyone who tries our lamb meat comes back for more! A number of area chefs find no comparison equal to Shepherd's Valley lamb. A growing number of handspinners are discovering our prize-winning wool fleeces. Along with honey and bee pollen, Shepherd's Valley offers value-added products such as jams, jellies, lip balms, herbal salves, and homemade soaps. Freshly ground whole grain breads and baked goods using local and organic ingredients are available on a weekly order basis. Our meats, eggs, produce, honey, and other farm products are delivered to several food buying clubs in the Manhattan and Topeka areas.
