Steede Farms is operated by Mike and Heath Steede and their families. The farm is located in George County Mississippi on Hwy 63 South.This land has been in our family for over 150 years. We are 30 miles north of the Gulf and about 30 miles west of Mobile, Alabama. We raise about 30 acres of watermelons and canteloupe and about 10 acres of fruits and vegetables that we sell through our C.S.A. We also raise corn on rented land and have cattle and pigs. We are not an organic farm but we do follow integrated pest management techniques to reduce pesticide applications and follow all label guidelines. This year we will produce a wide range of fruits and vegetables including tomato, cucumber, many peppers, southern peas, butterbeans, sweet corn, summer squash and greens.
2014 C.S.A. sign-up will have a limit of 150 members. This year's harvest will begin mid to late April and run for 8 weeks with a possible break between the spring and summer crops. The box will be 10-20 lbs. ( 3-4 people) for $210. Each week during melon harvest you may also receive a watermelon and/or canteloupe with your regular order. If you would like to receive extra vegetables for canning, please contact the farm for current prices.
