Tempel Farms New Organic Farm

Tempel Farms Organics is a diversified farm growing vegetables, fruit, cut flowers and pasture raised eggs. In a few years, Tempel Farms Organics 65 acre field will be eligible for organic certification. Until then, we will be growing as if we are certified. That means: NO harmful herbicide or pesticide use, NO petroleum based fertilizer use (Tempel has plenty of “Lipizzan” based fertilizer!), and our laying hens are raised on organic corn and soy based poultry feeds with no antibiotics or medications and will have plenty of fresh air, sunshine and vitamin rich pasture greens.

2010 CSA

Vegetable CSA: Please join us this season and let us share with you the bounty of fresh, local and organically raised vegetables and fruit. Our vegetable CSA is offered from June through October. You will receive a box of the farms’ harvest for 20 weeks, a 5/9 bushel box filled with 7-10 items.

Fruit CSA: You don’t want to miss out on our Fruit CSA! We will offer this share for 14 weeks from mid June to mid September. A variety of blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, peaches and much more will fill your summer with "in season" sensations!
