(Spring Hill,TN)Allenbrooke Farms is a 120 acre family farm in Spring Hill, TN, and is farmed by husband and wife team Daniel and Stephanie Allen. The farm is Certified Naturally Grown, the grassroots alternative to organic, and everything is grown using natural, organic farming methods. We offer a CSA Program for our customers, as well as an onsite farm stand, and you can find us at the Franklin Farmer's Market as well. Community-Supported or Community-Shared Agriculture (CSA) is also known as "subscription farming." You buy a subscription from a local farmer - just like you buy a subscription to Time or Newsweek. Instead of receiving a magazine each week, you receive a "share" of fresh, locally and organically grown fruit and/or vegetables. While new in name, Community Supported Agriculture hearkens back to an earlier time-a time when people knew where their food came from, ate in harmony with the seasons, and enjoyed a delicious, healthy diet of pure, fresh foods. CSA's are a fresh, fun, and most importantly a cost effective alternative to the grocery stores, and they allow you to support a local farmer in the process. Some of the many benefits: You'll receive a weekly basket of fresh, locally grown, good tastin' produce, and new recipes to go along with it. Many weeks we plan to have bouquets of fresh cut flowers as well! You will be buying food from a family that you know and trust, at a fraction of the cost of the grocery store chains.... and NO recalls! Your veggies are Certified Naturally Grown, the grassroots alternative to Organic for small farms like Allenbrooke Farms. You will have a great opportunity to introduce your family to the idea of knowing where and whom your food comes from, how it grows, and you'll learn to learn to 'eat with the seasons'. You will be helping not only your local economy, but a local family farm- Allenbrooke Farms. Many of the varieties we grow are unique heirloom varieties that cannot be found in stores, and you will have a say in what we grow! Let us know what you like and want in your baskets and we will do what we can to make it happen. Share Info Allenbrooke Farms CSA members receive a half bushel basket full of veggies each week.
