Featured Farm: Geraldson Community Farm

As small business owners, we are dedicated to sourcing ingredients from local sources as much as possible. We believe supporting local farms is the best way to ensure a great seasonal produce supply that is delicious and nutritious. This month, we’d like to highlight one of our main suppliers- Geraldson Community Farm.

Geraldson Community Farms is a 20 acre Certified Organic CSA farm that was established in 2007 in Bradenton. As a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm, CSA members purchase a share of organic vegetables for the growing season of November-May. Members can also connect with their produce through volunteering “U-Pic” which allows members to harvest items themselves. They also give back to the community by providing a learning environment for schools and groups with community tours, workshops, volunteer opportunities, and new farmer training. If you want healthy local produce but are worried about the cost, GCF offers a both full and half workshare that allows you to volunteer and receive produce for your time. ┬áThe farm grows a variety of delicious produce including: Lettuce, Beats, Turnips, Kale, Tomatoes, Zucchini, Summer and Winter Squash, and many more.
