Formerly Operated as Urban Fresh Produce
Community Supported Agriculture is a system of farming that puts you in touch with the people who are growing/raising your food; it takes many forms but the goal is always a mutually beneficial relationship. We are choosing to offer a subscription type service where you pay a yearly fee in exchange for weekly deliveries of produce throughout the growing season. See our website for more info.
Winniford Family Farm strives to grow beyond organic. We focus on improving our soil's health so that the plants natural immune system can protect itself from disease and pest. We use compost and green manures to replenish and build the soil; the result is naturally healthy plants that are able to ward off potential pests and won't succumb to disease. This process is more labor intensive and requires valuable space to be used for composting and growing manure crops, but we feel that it is a vital component to quality grown produce and works to improve (rather than deteriorate) our environment. We never employ the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. We purchase organic seed whenever possible and always use Non-GMO sources.
Winniford Family Farm chooses their varieties based on flavor over their ability to be shipped and stored. We choose varieties that are not carried by supermarkets, many that are rare or heirloom. We seek out old favorites that were forgotten after the introduction of modern hybrids but are remembered by old-timers who have never forgotten their superior flavors and textures. We also focus on variety, growing everything from Asian greens to hot peppers and from celery to artichokes. We love special requests; so if you have one, let us know!

I have been sooo thrilled every week with the quality of produce we have received from WFF!!! I love the variety, our kids are so excited every week to see what "sweet" veggies we get, and I love that we are supporting another family just like ours! How cool is that! We are a family of 6 and we haven't needed to buy other veggies all season.... [more]

I picked up my first CSA from Andrew from Winniford Family on Saturday. I am delighted with all of it. As I was standing at my sink packing it for the refrigerator I ate nearly all the peas.... [more]
