Who we are:
We are Cole and Ellen Turner, husband and wife team, and owners of Little Pond Farm in Bushnell, Florida. Established in 2013, the farm is USDA Certified Organic which means we grow our crops without the usage of any synthetic chemicals or inputs, with soil-health as a focus and an emphasis on the farm as a whole ecosystem. We grow our crops with only the good stuff – managing our soil with organic biological inputs and managing the ecosystem with beneficial insects and organisms. We farm this way because we are dedicated to having a farm that does no harm – to the land and environment, wildlife and soil life, our team, and all of our customers and the people who consume our products. Read more about the farm and us here.
How to get our veggies and flowers:
We offer our veggies to the public in the city of St. Pete, Florida. You can find us at our weekly farmers market The Saturday Morning Market in downtown St. Pete. We attend the market October through May.
Stay in touch:
We send email updates and newsletters with cooking tips, farm and seasonal updates, and more. You can sign up for our newsletter here. Additionally, we have an active presence on Facebook and Instagram . Follow us there for photos and behind-the-scenes stories!
Connect with our community:
As a farm, a mission of ours is to connect and create a community around a shared love of local organic food and nutritious eating. We have created an online community of Little Pond veggie lovers where we can all connect over recipes, veggie preparation, and healthy cooking. We invite all newsletter subscribers to join our group here: Little Pond Veggie Success! Please introduce yourself there.
We offer season-long memberships to our farm for folks who are ready to take their love of local, organic food to the next level. Farm Members receive a Farm Card to spend down at the farmers market throughout the season. Bonus funds are added to your Farm Card as a thank-you for your upfront commitment to shopping with us. The time of year to purchase your membership is May-August, ahead of the new season beginning in October. Learn more about membership here.
We look forward to getting to know you! Thank you for connecting with us.
