Welcome to Rushing Greens
Healthy soil, healthy veggies, healthy people
We are Community Supported Agriculture
Rushing Greens began and still stands on the foundation that we grow nutrient dense food for those around us. We add organic and composted material to the soil to keep it healthy. We grow pollinators to attract bees and helpful insects. Most importantly, we use only organically approved products to keep harmful insects away.
We grow on a half an acre in LaGrange, Kentucky on land leased from Blakemore Farm. We are Blessed and thrilled to be in our Third growing season.
Quick history of the CSA:
Community Supported Agriculture started in the early 1960′s in Germany, Switzerland, and Japan because people were concerned about food safety and the urbanization of agricultural land. Consumers and farmers in Europe formed cooperative partnerships to support farms and farming by paying in advance so the farms could begin their season.
CSA began in the United States on two east coast farms in 1986. Since that time, CSA farms have been organized throughout the country with over 12,500 community supported farms serving farm fresh food in every state. (I got this from www.csacoalition.org).
