We are so thankful for our community 💚
Our tiny farm would not be successful with out the support from our CSA members. Their memberships enable us to purchase the supplies and seeds needed to have a successful grow season.

We are thankful for for their support and all they do to create community that supports local farmers .

We are thankful for our community partners that have allowed us to market and sell produce from their business:


We are thankful for for all that they do to eliminate food waste from the farm through their organizations. It always feels good to fill up their donation bags at the farmers market or have them pick up at the farm.

Thank you 🙏
Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday weekend

Nutrient dense food begins with nutrient dense soil. Cover cropping is critical for achieving a balanced system where the farm is not stripping the soil of nutrients but rather working to feed the soil.

Garlic Honey 💛
We grow our own garlic and have an apiary on the farm for pollinator habitat. Everything is certified naturally grown

Garlic Honey is delicious on its own, in a salad dressing, or sauce. I love to add the garlic cloves to my salad dressing or just eat them when I need an immunity boost!

These are for holiday gifts. We will have some available when we vend in December

All proceeds of tonight’s event goes to , who works to protect, restore, and promote the Coosa River and its tributaries in Alabama.

Lovelight Farm is in Wilsonville, Alabama, which is in the middle of the Coosa River basin, meaning that all the water that feeds our property is from the Coosa River watershed.

Coosa Riverkeeper works to ensure that folks like you have the right to know what’s in our public waterways, and that you can make informed decision on where to swim, how to consume fish, and how a healthy Coosa River affects our economy and property values.

If you can’t make the party tonight, we hope you will still support and follow them!

Biodynamic prep 500
With the Fall Equinox we prepare cow horns filled with manure to undergo a transformation during the winter. Horns will be dug up at the Spring Equinox. The manure will be used to make compost tea to spray on the fields twice a year.

The manure works on soil structure by stimulating microbial activity and balancing the Ph. Over the growing season the manure will help with mineral distribution, seed germination, and root development.

Farm Visit recap. 🌱

Soaked up a beautiful morning in Wilsonville at Lovelight Farm Alabama with Keith and Jennifer. ✨ They showed us how they farm using biodynamic methodology, grow without pesticides or herbicides, and shared dreams and plans for their land. ♻️

They also showed where they prepare their CSA orders for delivery. 🍉 Joining their CSA ensures you receive perks, like firsts of everything each week!

Joining a CSA is also a great way to help farmers each season. 💛 When you pay for your subscription in advance, farmers gain financial security for upcoming costs like buying seeds.

Market Menu 7/30: peppers like poblano, mad hatter and cayenne; tomatoes like sungold black, Washington heirlooms and romas; sugar baby melons and fairytale eggplants.

💥UPDATE💥
Lovelight Farm's CSA is SOLD OUT for the fall! Send an email if you want to be on the list for next season: [email protected]
