About Close to Home Organic Farm
Our goal is to grow and harvest the highest quality fresh produce for the local community.
Close to Home Organic Farm stands for local, organic, sustainable agriculture. They grow a wide variety of crops from carefully sorted seeds to produce delicious, healthy vegetables, herbs and flowers through environmentally friendly farming practices.
They use organic compost, green manure, and crop rotation to maintain soil health. Lots of organic hay mulch cover our vegetable beds to control weeds, retain moisture and conserve water use. Row covers protect our young plants from pests and predators. They value and encourage the existence of beneficial insects and birds in their garden thus they do not use any harmful chemicals. Through the assistance of the local conservation foundation, they support the planting of trees and grasses to develop natural habitats for these creatures.
Their fresh, healthy and delicious organic produce is delivered weekly through our CSA program. They also provide wholesome, high-quality produce to the Landmark Group of restaurants.
