At Hines Valley Farm we grow vegetables of superb taste; sell locally to keep our produce fresh; and farm according to USDA organic rules in order to minimize environmental harm.
Please visit--and buy from us!-- Saturdays 9-2 at Market Square* in downtown Knoxville.
Thanks for the support in 2013!
Those of you who have helped, by purchase and friendship, thank you.
I am out of the retail market until spring, but will deliver to The Plaid Apron in Knoxville and occasionally to Three Rivers Market and Just Ripe as produce grows. I will again sell a very few CSA shares in 2014, so if you have an interest, see the CSA page and send me a note.
The Hines Valley Farm on facebook has nothing to do with me! It is instead a development group trying to sell land.
I have learned that many assume that all market farmers sell organic produce. This assumption is false. The majority of growers in the Knoxville markets are conventional. My USDA organic status is verified by independent inspection. Some farmers operate under the "certified naturally grown" standard similar to USDA organic: this regime is self-policed by member growers. Please see organic farming for details.
*Market Square lies between Walnut, Wall, S. Gay, and Union streets downtown.
Hines Valley Farm is half an hour west of Knoxville, on the western edge of Lenoir City, 19801 Hines Valley Road. Email us
