Shiner Prairie FarmWorks

My grandfather started this farm in the early 1950's and it has been in the family ever since. My wife, Patricia, and I decided to have a go at growing vegetables on a larger scale than usual to help supply the local area with fresh vegetables, grown with organic principles and methods. While we are not CERTIFIED as organic, naturally grown or animal welfare, know that we don't use any chemical fertilizers. We use all natural methods to grow our vegetables and our cattle are grass fed, with no growth hormones.

We grow tomato's, potato's, squash (patty pan, zucchini, yellow crookneck and straight-neck), eggplant, cucumbers (both eating and pickling), beans, beets, spinach, sweet corn, gourds, etc... and all our seeds are heirloom. We'll have spring, summer, fall and even some winter crops.

Small in size, high in quality. We're just getting started, but will be here for the long haul. We'll start having heirloom hogs called Large Blacks starting in early 2010 and will be offering feeding services for butchering both our cattle and hogs in the near future. Life is good out on the farm.

We're here from about 9 in the morning until the day ends at sundown. Our new vegetable roadside stand is under construction, to be finished in August/September, so everything is under the shade of the woodshop roof right now.
