Shadowood Farm is devoted to teaching people how to grow their own organic food and sharing that gloriously GOOD food with others.
This ten acre, solar powered, experimental farm began growing organic vegetables and fruits in 2010. Prior to 2010, we spent over two decades growing Native plants.
Organic and sustainable are more than just fashionable buzz words around here.
For the last eight years, people have been able to rent a garden space and grow their own food; purchase food grown here on the farm; attend our various "how-to" workshops to learn better ways to grow food at home; and rent the farm for special events. Our 9th season will see some exciting changes, that we will share in the coming months.
Due to expected annual vegetable crop declines, produce Sales to the public ENDED on Saturday, April 29th, 2018. The farm is open to the public BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, with 48 hours advance e-mail notice from May through August.

About Growing Food
People have the option to rent ready-made planting beds and learn to grow food in a hands-on environment. In addition to teaching our gardeners how to grow great organic veggies and herbs, Shadowood offers a variety of educational workshops for home gardeners that are open to the public.
Buying Our food & More
During the summer months (May through early September) all of our garden beds are filled with cover crops, so no food is available for sale during these months. Creating green manure and letting our beds rest is our summer priority, which in turn helps us to re-nourish our precious soil and grow fabulous food when the fall growing season begins. From late October through April (and sometimes into May) we do sell our fabulous Shadowood Grown and other certified organic produce.
