Frush Farm Produce
Richard and I are naturalists. We make every effort to live in harmony with nature and reduce our human imprint on the world. Our fresh foods are grown naturally, taking into consideration the entire environment. Fertilizers are produced on-site by the chickens, goats, and donkey. Composting of leaves, manure, and other vegetable matter keeps the soil rich and moist with nutritive organic matter. We do NOT use pesticides or herbicides in the gardens. Many of the seeds used in the vegetable and flower gardens are produced from previous year's harvests. Several Heirloom tomato varieties date back over 100 years. The Hevener bean has it's ancestry in the hills of West Virginia over 150 years ago! And we grow several wild varieties of fruits and vegetables!
Our chickens are free range and pastured. They go outside almost every day of the year and have over 5 acres of meadow to roam. They find lots of bugs and enjoy fresh food scraps. Many customers exclaim that our eggs are the best! You'll understand why once you crack one and see the nutrient rich reddish-orange yolk! According to Mother Earth News, these eggs have 7 times higher beta carotene and 4 times less cholesterol! Egg quantities may be limited due to environmental factors that effect laying behavior such as shorter daylight hours, feather molting, and cold weather.
Frush Farm Produce is made available throughout the season. On our frushfarm facebook, we post weekly announcements of vegetables and fruits available. A vegetable sign is located along the road front. Although we have a store, hours are limited from mid-March to mid-October. Winter time is by appointment.
