Welcome to our little family farm!
Yes, That's me on the tractor!
We specialize in seasonal organic heirloom and gourmet produce, happily tended by hand, picked fresh and delivered within hours to some of Jackson's finest food establishments.
Our aim is sustainability,
we grow organically, using beneficial insects to control garden pests, and properly composted green and animal manures to amend the soil.
Any other amendments we use are OMRI approved. We do not use even the organically approved pesticides, or herbicides. We prefer instead to focus on soil health, which leads to plant health and the best tasting, most nutritious produce.
ShooFly is the former name of the town where we live. When it grew large enough to justify a post office, evidently ShooFly was not acceptable (!) so it was re-named Lena.
We grow according to/exceeding organic standards, and are a Certified Naturallly Grown farm. We are small, about 2 acres under cultivation, at present. We also have a number of bee hives, which we maintain without the use of
chemicals. We harvest honey once or twice a year, but not enough for the wholesale market. Please use the "Contact Us" form if you would like some.
Jim is President of the Mississippi Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association.
He is also on the Board of Directors of Certified Naturally Grown, and Gaining Ground Sustainability Institute of Mississippi.
