Blue Pike Farm is the first farm started in Cleveland proper in the 21st Century. We are dedicated to growing fresh products, using natural and sustainable agricultural practices. To that end we collect and compost organic matter from local municipalities, coffee shops and roasteries, and local food markets.
We grow fruit & vegetable varieties selected for their flavor and nutritional values. We personally favor heirloom and unusual varieties that are not readily available in your local supermarket.
Our products, including own own free range chicken eggs and raw honey are available for sale on the farm, at local farmers markets and in restaurants that appreciate and support quality, fresh and locally grown produce. We also offer a limited number of pasture raised broiler chickens beginning in May.
We have a limited number of CSA shares available for 2013. Please contact us if you are interested in additional information using "CSA Info" in the subject line.

I bought a CSA share with my savings from 2011 and my family and I were EXTREMELY dissappointed. We had to go all the way out to his farm to get our vegetables which were often bruised and/or on the brink of going bad.... [more]
Carl told me he'd been at his location for 6 years--right under my nose and I didn't even know it. Amazing. But enough about ME. I am not a member yet.... [more]

Blue Pike Farm is has the freshest and most interesting vegetables (heirloom varieties). And they're organic, so overall, it's hard to beat.
But the interesting perks have to do with the customer service.... [more]
