Many people ask why our chickens, eggs, and produce taste so great compared to what they’re used to buying at the grocery store. The reason is that we are truly passionate about natural, sustainable, non-GMO living, and we run our farm with these guiding principles. On our new Sustainability Initiatives page you can read about several programs and certifications for Creekside Natural Farm.

We’re on our way to Heritage Farm in IN to pick up our pregnant girls and bring them home. Apollo will be so happy to see his mama.
We have bundles of corn stalks for sale for $5.00 per bunch. They are from our own non-GMO and un-sprayed corn. We have also finally started picking tomatillos! They make fantastic salsa verde with our purple jalapenos.
We also have tomatoes, green beans, okra, zucchini, sweet and hot peppers, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, pumpkin for baking and decorative pumpkins. also, plenty of eggs from our AWA hens.
What would life be without home grown tomatoes? Our heirloom tomatoes are grown here and picked ripe – just like if you grew them yourself!
Bill picked some beautiful beans this morning and we will have a limited amount available by the half bushel. The purple, yellow and thin green beans are a French filet type or Haricot Vert. They are more tender and flavorful than the fatter beans and are great eaten fresh or frozen. They are also much more time consuming to pick and therefore a little more expensive. They will be bagged and on the cooler for $4.00 per lb. the regular green beans are $3.00 per lb. or $24.00 per half bushel (12 lbs.) and are great for canning. It’s so nice to have organic beans in the pantry or freezer in the middle of winter.
On our way to Morris for the 3 French Hens Market with a full load of freshly picked local and organically grown produce. Heirloom tomatoes, eggplant, sweet peppers, fingerling and red gold potatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, pickle cucumbers, jalapeño and poblano peppers, lemon squash, Cyndrical beets and hard neck garlic.
Come see us from 8-2 in our usual spot along the front sidewalk.
Come out and visit Creekside Natural Farm today from 9 – 3.
In addition to seeing our Suri alpacas, chickens and veggies, we will have Kat from M2AFaRM here with her spinning wheel and alpaca knowledge. We will also have Kristin and Alicia from Nurture the Journey here with info. on the studio and reiki. They will be bringing a massage chair and giving free massages!
We have veggies in the stand, frozen chickens, our heirloom stone ground cornmeal and Refrigerator Pickle Kits available for sale.
Weather permitting – Bill will do a field demonstration with our 1963 International combine. We have about an acre of oats left in the field and he plans to harvest it at around 12:00 if the sun is shining. These oats will be used to feed our hens who live about 700 ft. away from the field and the straw will be used for bedding for the hens and alpacas. Can’t get much more local/sustainable than that!
