T & A Barbee Family Farm, LLC (doing business as Barbee Farms)
was formed in 2008. The family has deep roots in agriculture. Brent, the youngest family member and farm manager,
is a sixth generation farmer on this farm and the first of the past three to fully depend on farming for a living. His
summer job during high school was to sell surplus vegetables from our garden at the local farmers markets. We have since
graduated from a small table at the market to no less than three farmers markets a week, a farm stand, a small
amount of restaurant and small grocery store business and participation in 3 multi-farm CSAs plus one exclusively from our
farm. Our family is extremely dedicated to this farm with everyone lending a hand to better our commitment of supplying
a quality and safe product.
The farm currently consists of approximately 70 acres of fresh vegetables, approximately
three acres of fruit trees, and 25 additional acres in corn, barley, and soybeans for rotational purposes. Our
intent is to maintain and strengthen soil properties and viability for future generations. We are not certified organic;
however, we practice many organic methods along with conventional methods. The ultimate goal is to create a line of
products that have the homegrown taste while maintaining the sustainability of our farm. Our family has always consumed
and preserved fruits and vegetables from our farm; therefore, food safety is a priority.
We currently produce over
30 different vegetable and fruit crops with many different varieties of each crop. As you can tell by the availability chart,
we are extremely diverse in the crops that we grow. Some of the crops have been added over the years from customer request.
If you do not see something that you enjoy, let us know. We are not afraid to try new things.
We are proud of what
Come see us!
