The 2019 growing season will be Teal Tractor's 5th year serving it's CSA customers!
Teal Tractor CSA practices sustainability and conservation on our land. Our farmland is precious and very limited. We believe a healthy living soil is the key to growing nutritious vegetables so we focus on composting, no-till and cover-cropping to sustain the micro-organisms and organic matter in our fields. Many of our products are organically grown, although we are NOT certified organic. We are feeding our own families the food we grow, therefore believe it to be very important to employ practices that we know to be extremely safe and healthy for both ourselves and our consumers. We grow about 20 different varieties of vegetables and some fruits and herbs, all of which you can enjoy as they come into season.
We aim to produce a supreme quality, freshness and flavor in our produce. We've designed a model for diversified, sustainable, small-scale community supported agriculture through responsible stewardship of the land. We respect the soil, water and air through conservative methods of growing, by conserving water and by reducing emissions into the air.
We hope to learn, practice and preserve some of the knowledge that our veteran farmers and farms provide. We recognize the need for farmers who are truly in love with farming and family farm life who wish to be responsible stewards of the land as much as they wish to be responsible stewards to their community.
ABOUT OUR FARM
Teal Tractor is my ever blossoming big idea fueled by love and a passion to positively influence others.
This passion has grown stronger thanks to my encouraging husband who has been farming for 25+ years, not to mention the five generations behind him. Being a part of his family has helped me appreciate the legacy they are building. They are making a difference by being stewards of the land, cultivated with faith, family and friends.
Walnut Lawn Farm was founded in 1842, located on the fringes of Lexington in Fayette County. Today we grow row crops such as corn & soybeans and it serves as the home of Teal Tractor CSA.
