The Stubborn Farmer
Fresh Vegetables

VEGETABLES

Our farm grows over 30 types of vegetables and some fruits, using natural fertilizers, and zero pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. Ever. Our produce is seeded, planted, weeded, and picked by hand. We harvest at peak ripeness just before your delivery; it doesn’t get any more farm-fresh than that! The varieties of fruit and veggies we grow are carefully selected for great taste and optimal nutrition, just another reason buying directly from local farms makes life more delicious!

Fresh Meat

MEAT

Our cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, and hens are grass fed on pasture containing 13 species of meadow grasses, flowers and legumes. We rotate our pasture to swap grazing land for hay production so we can save summer goodness to feed our livestock in winter. All supplemental feed is organic and GMO free. Giving our animals outdoor access through the colder months reduces illness and distributes manure sustainably, which means even healthier pasture and hay can grow next year! You are what your meat eats - eat naturally, eat stubbornly.

  • “I love your food”

    Carol

    “I wanted to pass on a note of thanks for the amazing box of produce and meat that I now receive from your farm. Having used [another service] for several years now, I am accustomed to a weekly delivery of organic produce. I really like [the other service] but by comparison, your produce box is far better quality and the amount you provide in a small box is more generous – I would say at least 50% more is in your box. Thanks again for your hard work and commitment to great farming.”
