This is the official "fake" blog of the Genuine Faux Farm. We are a small, family farm that focuses on raising vegetables for our 120 (or so) member CSA. We are certified organic and believe in using sustainable methods. We specialize in heirloom and open-pollinated vegetables. We also raise turkeys, chickens and ducks.
We are hopeful that interested persons can learn a bit about what it takes to run a small (14 acre), diverse farm from our postings here.
