Smaller Footprint Farm

Smaller Footprint Farm is a small farm near Yellow Springs OH that operates primarily as a CSA. "Smaller Footprint" refers to our ecological footprint, a measure of how much our life choices impact the earth. We believe making choices to decrease our impact on the earth (reducing our footprint) can make the world a healthier, happier, and more sustainable place to live.

We grow over 30 different vegetables including heirloom varieties and culinary herbs. Members receive weekly boxes of food from June - October. In addition to fresh, local, certified naturally grown vegetables, members also receive a weekly newsletter and are welcome to a variety of farm events including farm tours and member potluck.

We also have opportunities for members to help out on the farm and learn how their food is grown. For those with interest is learning how a CSA works we are also offering an apprenticeship this season. Contact us for more information.
