About Us
Cherry Lane Farm was started in 2016 with the desire to provide fresh, nutrient dense food to our community. We are a "basement" start up with microgreens and in our second season added a large high tunnel to grow in year round. We also added salad blends, leafy greens, and some root crops. We got our roots with restaraunts and expanded into retail. Our main focus is growing chemical free, beautiful, nutritious, and delicious foods.
Practices
We use an urban farming method to grow as much food in a small space as possible. We do a no-till method, and mainly use a BCS tractor. To save time, energy, and our sanity, we use a paper pot transplanter for our lettuces. You'll also find some creative engineering on how we wash and dry our products. We grow through most of the year except in the bitter cold of winter in our high tunnel. We do our field crops from April (ish) through October. Everything is chemical free, using mainly organic seeds, compost, and soil.
