History of Seven Springs Farm
In the land of Floyd County, Ron Juftes and Polly Hieser had a vision. From that, they began farming in 1990, forming the first CSA in the area, and supplying fresh organic produce to the community. In 1993 they started offering organic supplies to local farmers. Over the years, the Farming and Gardening Supply Catalog has grown to include online sales, and a strong involvement in organic agriculture.
Why grow organically?
To start with, organic food tastes better! Not using toxic pesticides and chemical fertilizers in the production of food is a much healthier choice for people and the environment. Organic production helps build healthy soil, preserves diversity in our environment, and provides us with the best quality food. Organic gardening takes into account Nature’s multifaceted systems ranging from soil to water supply, people, wildlife, and even insects. An organic gardener strives to work in harmony with natural systems and continually replenish any resources the garden consumes. By growing organically we are changing the world in a positive way. Please join in the movement and learn the principles and methods of organic gardening.
