About Us
We are committed to producing the very best fresh produce that we can. Our salad blend, garlic, onions, and other vegetables will delight your palate and inspire your secret master chef!

Eagle Glade Farm LLC is the fulfilment of a lifetime dream to live close to nature and to farm. About ten years ago, we started looking for a piece of land. The first time we saw this property, we followed a path to a clearing in the woods around a small kettle pond. An eagle was circling the clearing. The scene stole our hearts, and we both knew that this was where we wanted to settle down for the rest of our lives. We wanted to live in the glade with the eagle.

We spent the next ten years slowly clearing part of the property and building a small house and other necessary infrastructure. We moved to Eagle Glade in March of 2015, and made our first sales that summer. The farm is our main job, although we both supplement our farm production with part-time jobs.

We are located off Miller Loop, at the end of Blueberry Avenue. We've had some growing pains including a misadventure with sheep that we were not ready for, and a spectacularly muddy road to travel, but these are to be expected. The garlics, sorrel, and rhubarb are up, the onions are in the ground, the baby salad is growing like mad in the little cold houses, and Steve's greenhouse building workshop is up and running. Potatoes go in in a couple of days, as do cabbage and kale sets.
Practices
Coming soon: Cabbage, carrots, garlic, mature potatoes, onions, parsnips, rutabaga, and shallots. Watch for them!

Sustainability is our guiding principle. We start with the soil, using only organic techniques and natural amendments, and we care for our produce with an artisan level of skill and care. Every bed is inspected daily. Where appropriate, the gentlest of hand gardening techniques are used to keep the beds clean, happy, and productive. We like to think that we are working to help Mother Nature do what she does so well - grow beautiful plants.

We specialize in fine salad mixes, garlic, onions, and culinary herbs. Most of our crops are grown outdoors, but a few do benefit from the protection of small cold houses, row covers, and other season extension techniques. Long-term plans include introduction of high tunnels to accommodate tender favorites such as tomatoes and cucumbers.

Visitors are welcome, we only ask that you call first to save yourself a useless trip in case we are not home.
