ShooFly Farms Healing The Earth/Ourselves
Welcome to our little family farm!
Our aim is sustainability. We grow organically, using beneficial insects to control garden pests, and well composted green and animal manures to amend the soil. Any other chemicals or amendments we use are OMRI approved.
ShooFly is the former name of the town where we live. When it grew large enough to justify a post office, evidently ShooFly was not acceptable (!) so it was re-named Lena.
We are small; we have under 3 of our 6 acres in cultivation at any given time.
Annette, who is the main operator of the farm, is Secretary of The Board of Gaining Ground Sustainability Institute of Mississippi in Starkville. Jim is the regional representative for the Jackson area, and a former Board Member of Rainbow Whole Foods Coop in Jackson. We grow select varieties of produce for Rainbow Coop in Jackson and for local restaurants, in season; and microgreens year round.
For updates on what's in season, or available, see our website: Healing The Earth Ourselves:
