The Eaton Farm

The Eaton Farm is a diversified family farm dedicated to preserving its farming heritage. The 50 acre farm near Madison, Indiana has been in Jerry Eaton's family for three generations. In addition to the main farm where most of the produce and stock are raised, the Eatons rent about 60 acres of hay ground for winter feeding. Today the farm family consists of Jerry and his wife Elizabeth, their sons Silas and Ira, and Jerry's parents, Jim and Sudie Eaton. While many small farms have faced severe challenges over the past century, the Eatons feel that providing communities with fresh and local food is one way to keep farming viable. 2013 will be their 7th year participating in farmer's markets, and the 6th season for their Produce CSA. The Eatons raise a wide selection of naturally-grown produce, with an emphasis on heirlooms and unique varieties. They also produce high quality pastured meat and eggs from animals raised on their farm. In addition to what is offered at market and through their Meat CSA, meat and eggs are also available through the farm buying club, The Good Eaton Club.
