Produce and Flowers
A wide variety of produce is grown at Cane Creek Farm to provide variety for the CSA. We choose varieties that are tasty, hardy, and grow well on our soils. Over the years, we have found that some crops grow better than others on our creek bottomland, so there is an abundance of certain crops, most years. Eggplant, squash, tomatoes, and broccoli especially do well. Carrots, beets and dry onions are more of a challenge, though we always manage to grow some.
Flowers are one of Lynn’s favorite crops, so each year we include flowers in our fields and CSA and market offerings. In 2011, lilies were put in the hoop house and more beds of perennial flowers were added to the field in front of the store. Larkspur, zinnias, dahlias, gladiolus and sunflowers are in abundance each year.
Our approach is to build good soil with crop rotations and cover crops. Good soil results in good plants, which are more resistant to insects and disease. This is a continual process as nutrients are removed with the harvested crops each year.

“I’ve learned so much about the importance of living a sustainable lifestyle. It has been a pleasure getting to know my fellow organic consumers. The produce is AWESOME! It’s great preparing food for my family knowing exactly where it came from, and experimenting with new veggies that I never bothered to pick up from the grocery store.” JoAnna G.
