Fresh Local Organic Vegetables
Smiths Family Organic Farm is a small family farm. We are located in Fresno Cal. Farm is operated by Mike and Sandie Smith along with their two boys Mikey and Justin. Family has been farming the soil since 1903. Certified Organic with C.C.O.F. 4 years ago. With the great growing seasons in the San Joaquin Valley we grow produce all year long. By being part of a CSA the customer helps support a local farm which in turn supplies your family with many different fresh and tasty vegetables. This is done on a weely basis. We sell what we produce here on the farm and we co-farm with two other small family farms that are also Certified Organic by CCOF.
We certified organic after decades of conventional farming. The seed was planted when Mikey was very young. We were taking a walk and he strayed towards a field that was newly fumigated. I had Sandie get him away from that field, after explaining to my wife why we needed to get him out of there her response was you mean we are going to allow other people to eat that crop. After that we began making changes in our farming practices. As the years went by we implemented organic farming practices. IPM Integrated Pest Management for insect control, Beneficial Habitat for Beneficial insects. Cover Crops for Nutrient Management, Fish based products for fertilizer.
It would be a great pleasure if we could be your personal farmers. The Smith Family Mike, Sandie, Mikey and Justin
