Visit Our Farm Stand

Each week, Ivy Creek Family Farm harvests fresh, organically grown vegetables from our fields. Now, you can shop our daily harvests from our refrigerators at the front of the farm!The farm stand is open 7 days a week during daylight hours.

We have created the farm stand in hopes of giving community members an easy, convenient way to purchase the freshest vegetables around. The store changes weekly as new vegetables are ready to harvest! Winter veggies include spinach, lettuce, kale, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, and more!

Growing Practices

We grow our produce using sustainable and organic methods focusing on soil health. Building healthy soil is the foundation of organic farming and our food system. By utilizing compost, crop rotation, conscious tillage and ecologically minded approaches avoiding the use of synthetic fertilizers, fungicides, herbicides and pesticides we maintain an active and living soil that produces nutrient rich food.

Soil Health

Healthy soils are the foundation of organic farming and our food system. Our goal is to maintain an active and living soil, containing beneficial organisms below and above the ground that provide nutrients to plants and help mitigate pest and disease pressure. We feed our soils green manure from cover crops, organic feather meal, organic kelp meal, and dozens ofmicro-nutrients. Yearly soil samples are taken to help inform our organic amendment program and crop rotation strategy.

farming practice for
Crop Rotation

All crops are rotated on a three to five-year schedule. Rotating plant families, following heavy feeders with lite feeders helps maintain a well-balanced and healthy soil, limiting the amount of pest and disease pressure present.

farming practice for
Cover Cropping

Cover crops are planted yearly, in between seasonal cash crops, to sequester carbon and store it in the soil. Cover cropping also reduces erosion, helps control disease and pests, smothers weeds and increases biodiversity. Cover cropping is an organic alternative and resource conscience means of improving soil fertility and heath.

farming practice for
Organic Integrated Pest Management

We use a variety of organic methods to manage disease and pests, including beneficial insects, floating row cover, hoop houses, cover cropping and crop rotation. Maintaining healthy soils and proper crop rotation are integral preventative methods to help control disease and pests. We also utilize floating row covers to protect young transplants from pests, and we introduce beneficial insects that feed on the pests we hope to eliminate. When appropriate, we use preventative treatment of organic compounds to manage disease and pest challenges before bigger problems arise. Feel free to ask us any questions about the organic treatments and strategies we utilize on our crops.
