We  hosted a USDA Outreach Technical Demonstration at the farm on May 23rd. It rained all day, but that did not stop a good turnout of folks who enjoyed a fine lunch. They also gained lots of valuable information on hoop house and plastic culture vegetable production as well. Representatives from Coosa Valley RC&D, FSA, NRCS, and USDA Rural Development presented info on the support programs they provide to farmers, ranchers, homeowners, and individuals interested in entering agriculture-related activities.



Sneaky Crow Farm was the featured farm in the USDA's blog announcing the 2016 National Farmers Market Week. Above, our wonderful USDA Organic produce is being sold at the Thursday farmers market on the campus of Auburn University.

The Auburn market is NOW OPEN.  We are there every THURSDAY from 3:00-6:00 PM CST.


The carrots, Swiss chard, onions, and beets we sowed in the hoop house in late November are now ready.  Our red and Yukon Gold potatoes are also ready.  Next up, sweet potato slip production and planting in the fields.  We grow Alabama Nugget and Georgia Beauregard sweet potatoes.


Growing in our hoop house in late March 2017 - carrots, Swiss chard, arugula, onions, collards, and strawberries. We also have a couple of rows of snap beans (Contender) growing in the hoop house. The produce is now being sold at area farmers markets.

Our organic tomato plugs were transplanted into 4-inch pots and made ready to plant in the hoop house and outside in the field. Some have been transplanted into the fields.

The outside collards and turnips have bolted (gone to seed.) Their beautiful yellow flowers loaded with pollen and nectar no longer serve as a food sources for our honey bees, bumble bees, butterflies, wild bees and other pollinators. They will make way for spring/summer crops. We are still selling kale.



If you would consider joining a CERTIFIED ORGANIC CSA, drop us an e-mail (use the "Contact Us" tab) to let us know you are interested. The area we would serve with the CSA would be East Alabama and West Georgia. Thanks.


As part of our plan to increase items of interest on our farm, we are looking for in-kind contributions of old lumber that we can use to rehabilitate a 100+-year old farm house that was built around 1906.  The house, once rehabilitated, will be furnished with period furniture from the early 1900s and opened to tour groups (schools, clubs, etc.).

The immediate need now is for lumber (planks) that will be used to replace rotten and insect damaged siding.  We would be willing to harvest the planks from old farm houses and/or barns and remove the donated items. We could use some aged timbers to replace foundation timbers.  If you think you have some wood we could use, send us an e-mail with photos of the building or planks to gthornton {at} sneakycrowfarm {dot} com. Thanks.
