We believe that sustainable agriculture is not only about caring for the land, but also about caring for the health and well being of a community. Each year our farm is proud to donate fields-worth of our fresh produce in bulk to the food banks in our growing areas. Here's how you can help grow the good we can do!
There are still too many children, working families and individuals in our communities battling hunger. Food banks are desperate for healthy food donations. You can help make a difference. Now through our Donate-A-Box program, anyone can join our farm's efforts to provide fresh, nutritious produce to families and individuals in need. It's quick and easy to donate online. Every box counts!
