Named for the bluebells that bloom every year in the front yard and have been for
more than 100 years, the Prairie Belle Farm house has been in Clinton County since 1860. But our little farm is only about two years old,
even though we have been gardening for more than 30 years. We have
always enjoyed growing and eating our own vegetables. Now that Greg is
retired and has more time to spend at home, we have decided to become
part of the Buy Fresh Buy Localmovement.
Although we are not certified organic yet, we do follow the guidelines to become certified. So all our produce is grown without pesticides or inorganic fertilizers. We are constantly improving our soil by using plenty of compost and organic matter. We believe that by maintaining healthy soil, we will grow healthy plants which will give us great produce.
This is the second year for our blackberry plants and they are blossoming and setting on fruit like crazy. We hope to have a great crop.Our tomatoes are growing, a few new varieties along with some amazing heirloom varieties.It's so much fun to grow fabulous tasting tomatoes!
