Spring Creek Veggies

Riceville, Tennessee

Spring Creek Veggies is a family run farm which gratefully provides consciously grown heirloom and open-pollinated produce using sustainable non-certified organic and biodynamic methods.

Family Run – Every task on the farm is done with the direct oversight of Troy, Sharon, or one of their daughters.
Gratefully Provides – They farm because they want to, and are happy to share with you the bounty of our harvest so that you too can eat nutritious, flavorful, vine-ripened food.
Consciously Grown – Everything they do at the farm is done with intent, and in the knowledge of the effects of those actions on things greater than ourselves.
Sustainable – They try to source all of our inputs from as locally as possible. We take into consideration how feasible each of our actions is over the long term.
Heirloom and Open-Pollinated – They do not grow any hybrid or GMO crops. They grow varieties that have stood the test of time, not the test of a variety trial based on characteristics better suited to shopping at a supermarket instead of a Farmer’s Market.
Non-certified Organic – They do not use any chemical inputs. They are not certified for two reasons: the first is that a for a farm their size certification is not economically practical; the second is that the standards for certification are written for large farms and are unable to address an individual farms individual situation.
Biodynamic – Biodynamic is an organic growing method that has a higher emphasis on sustainability and uses specific composting and soil preparation methods to grow food of higher nutritional value.
