ABOUT LIFE FARMS
Life Farms is an organic vegetable farm located in Clearwater, in the heart of Pinellas County, Florida. We intend to provide nutrient dense food, loving service, and educational information to our customers. On our 6 acres farm we grow vegetables, herbs and micro greens organically without synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Our first plants went in the ground in the spring of 2013 and our first CSA season was the fall of 2013.
In September 2018 Life Farms merged with Sonnengarten Farm.
Together we've been able to grow more vegetables and diversify our assortment. We increased our productivity and we started to grow micro greens on a commercial scale.
About half a dozen of excellent restaurants buy produce from us and we deliver our micro greens weekly to Nature's Food Patch in Clearwater and Dunedin.
The Dunedin Market and the St.Pete Saturday Morning Market became important outlets for our produce and our weekly CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares continue to grow in our 7th season!
As we look toward the future there are some exciting things happening:
We are on the path to become a USDA Certified Organic Farm.
To improve our quality we are upgrading our irrigation systems & field production, building two greenhouses and adding a new washing station & a walk-in cooler.
Our Partnership with TrailBale Farm (Tampa) will allow our CSA members to purchase organic eggs, poultry and pasture-raised beef. Find out more about our CSA.
We will provide more varieties of root crops and fruiting vegetables (tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, squash and more.) for the next season at our weekly markets and for our CSA members.
We will offer more workshops & gardening classes and farm-to-table dinners.
We're removing invasive plants and building habitats for native wildlife. This will help us to attract more beneficial insects & birds and save some of Florida's unique flora & fauna.
