Our farm is a commitment between individuals or families and us, where people buy into our farm as members at the start of the growing season, and in exchange receive a weekly share of the farm's harvest.
WHY JOIN THE Little Gnome Farm CSA?Enjoy fresh locally grown vegetables. Our careful variety selection and biodynamic growing practices bring out the very best in flavor!
- By supporting Little Gnome Farm, you also benefit the local economy. Little Gnome Farm both provides jobs and also recycles money by purchasing supplies from other local businesses.
- We don’t use synthetic chemicals, pesticides or herbicides on our vegetable fields.
At Little Gnome Farm we believe that there is a better way to farm than the chemical status quo that has dominated the American landscape and food system during the last half century. We believe that by working with the natural rhythms of the soil, plants, people and microorganisms we can grow excellent tasting food without the environmental and health risks that can accompany chemical intensive farming practices. We practice Organic Farming and strive to reach the goals associated with a farm managed as a holistic system. We always seek to meet and exceed not only the letter of the organic farming rules, but also the intent of a Biodynamic farm. As farmers we never use chemical fertilizers, chemical pesticides or genetically modified plants. Instead we rely on things like compost, crop rotation and cover crops to keep our land and crops healthy and productive.

The ideal is for a Biodynamic farm to be a self-sufficient organism, enlivened by the biodynamic practitioner through the use of compost and spray preparations in cooperation with natural rhythms. The results of biodynamic agriculture are found in the quality of the produce, the health of the land and the livestock, and the independence from damaging modern agriculture practices with their use of herbicides, fertilizers and pesticides. Biodynamics is a way of living, working and relating to nature and the vocation of agriculture. It is based on healthy common-sense practices, consideration of the uniqueness of each landscape, and the inner development of the biodynamic practitioner. ~ Rudolf Steiner College
