Statement on Covid-19: 3/21/2020- At this time, we are still early in our production year. But already we are thinking about the months and growing season to come, and how best to cope with cornavirus. Our youngest son, Isaac, is in a high risk category do to his serious medical and heart condition. This has made us take all the sanitation and isolation guidelines very seriously. Thankfully, we have several weeks before our first market to see how things develop, and hopefully see the virus contained. We are using this time to review our farm processes, on-farm and at market, to take any necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of everyone. -At this time, we are on a pause from accepting CSA workshare or farm volunteers. -We are adding additional sanitation practices for harvest, post harvest handling, and market. - While we intend to be at market starting in May, we are planning for the possibility of online sales for most/all crops (not just the plant sale). - We have revamped our plant sale with a focus on self- reliance and crop yields. Think 'Victory Garden' for the modern age. Thank you for supporting our farm and the local food system! We will keep you updated about any changes or developments.
At Earthkeeper Farm, we grow food sustainably, using only natural, chemical free, and biodynamic growing practices. We strive to create a balanced farm ecosystem, which naturally keeps disease and pests under control. Biodiversity, environmental protection, building healthy soil, and commitment to a local food system are a few key elements of the farm.
We grow Certified Naturally Grown vegetables, garden plants, elderberries, and wheat (fresh milled at market).
We have vegetable plants in a variety of crops and types. Pre-ordering is encouraged. The plants will also be available at our Fulton Street Farmer Market stand on Saturday from early May through mid June.
