We welcome you to explore Sunny Slope Farm, 10 miles east of Beatrice, NE. As of January 2014, we are in the midst of marketing our 2014 CSA shares. We also offer on-farm sales as well as selling at the Beatrice Farmers' Market on Thursdays (June to Sept). Our products include a broad variety of vegetables, as well as strawberries, honey and free-range eggs. We market a limited number of broilers and turkeys ---- This sustainably managed farm started in July 2007. Our produce is raised without synthetic herbicides or pesticides, using organic management techniques. We have a small orchard, with a variety of apples, peaches and pears. Our customers love the quality and flavor of our grass-finished beef, and we will have several animals available for purchase (quarters/halves) in late summer. Our off-grid farm uses solar and wind power generation, and our buildings are recycled/renovated from area farms, including a unique passive-solar barn house. Email us for more detailed CSA information, or come pay us a visit! You may find a photo album about the farm and CSA at http://picasaweb.google.com/mfriesen2/SunnySlopeFarmCSA. Other related albums are in the "My Photos" link on that same page, including "CSA Weekly Shares" and "2011 Farm Photos".
Since 2008, offering 20-week CSA shares featuring naturally-grown chemical-free produce and eggs. On-farm sales are welcome. Come see our Belted Galloway cattle and our Belgian draft horses. Or, look over our solar and wind electrical systems in operation.
