Little River Cooperative

We are a small urban farm in Miami FL, owned and operated by Muriel Olivares and Tiffany Noe. Within our acre of land we grow veggies for a CSA, farmers markets and local restaurants. In our nursery we grown season specific organic seedlings and offer a selection of edible annuals and perennials at the farmers market, at pop up nursery stands around town, and also for larger custom orders and garden maintenance and installation services.

Our CSA members benefit from the intimate relationship they develop with the farm in many ways; learning about and trying alternative tropical crops that aren't for sale in the grocery store, the opportunity to visit the farm and see where their food is being grown and volunteer to help grow the farm and sustain the local farming movement. Included in your CSA share are also recipes and suggestions for delicious ways to experience those fruits and veggies you may not have experience with.

This season we are offering two share sizes to meet the demands of your household. We also have two pick up locations to make sure you can conveniently pick up your weekly shares. We love the Upper East Side Farmers Market, and many of our loyal members do too, so we will be offering pick ups on Saturdays from 10am-2pm at Legion Park located at Biscayne blvd and 66th street . We will also be offering CSA pick ups on Thursdays from 3pm-8pm at the Grove Green Market located at the Coconut Grove Playhouse parking lot, 3500 Main Highway.

We believe a healthy living soil is the key to growing nutritious vegetables so we focus on composting, cover-cropping and no-till to sustain the micro-organisms and organic matter in our fields. Although we aren't certified organic our methods of farming are beyond organic. We grow about 30 different varieties of vegetables and some fruits and herbs, all of which you can enjoy as they come into season. This season we will also be sourcing produce from other local urban farms as a way of extending our season and offering a more varied selection of produce. We are excited about sharing information and produce from those farms on our blog and in the shares!
