Volunteers at Little River Cooperative are not on Real Time Farms... yet!
The farm is made up of two plots of land, both managed using organic methods of production to produce over 40 varieties of vegetables, most of them heirloom, as well as specialty items like edible flowers and many year round tropical crops like sugar cane, bananas and key limes.
We believe that the health of our soil is directly related to the quality of our harvest and our plants so we focus on compost, cover-crops and no-till methods to sustain the micro-organisms and organic matter in our fields. We don't use any synthetic chemicals, pesticides or fertilizers in our production.
This fall we will be growing crops for our CSA, farmers markets and for sale to local restaurants. One of our main goals this season is to further create relationships with local chefs to supply them with truly fresh and unique materials to work with. Over the years we've had many chefs visit the farm and we've seen how rewarding it is for them. The exchange of knowledge between farmer and chef is very inspiring to us and we hope to nurture those bonds even more.
