Powder Keg Farms provides Certified Naturally Grown farm products, including produce, fresh eggs and some prepared foods. The farm practices heritage farming, believing naturally raised foods are nutritionally superior and higher in quality. The farm utilizes two high tunnels/greenhouses, outdoor gardens and additional indoor space to grow and harvest its produce. It also manages a flock of over 200 chickens of various species, which produce an abundance of eggs that are hand-tended and gathered. The farm operates year round, including a CSA that includes shares of the farm's goods along with foods prepared in its kitchen. The farm services a stable of regional restaurants and businesses (with specific plants raised at the request of customers) and CSA shareholders. Powder Keg Farms is also providing produce for the 300 students at Capon Bridge Middle School via its cafeteria in the 2019-20 school year. Open houses are held occasionally so people can visit the farm and see the operation. The farm also provides farm education to special groups and welcomes interns.
Powder Keg Farms' unusual CSA provides nutritional vegetables, herbs, fruits and eggs plus shareholders are treated to something homemade each week, such as breads, baked goods, soups, etc. Other times, shareholders might find an educational coloring sheet featuring a plant from that week's harvest, a packet of heritage seeds, a small potted plant or a canned treat from a previous harvest. The CSA runs year-round, deliveries are made to doorsteps and it caters to special dietary needs.
