25 Years of Seven Spring Community Supported Agriculture &
Seven Springs Farming and Gardening Supply Catalog
In 1990, Ron Juftes and Polly Hieser relocated from Pennsylvania to enjoy the lovely land of Floyd County. They began farming, forming the first CSA in the area, supplying fresh organic produce to the community. In 1990 they opened a retail store on the farm, supplying local farmers with organic pest control and soil amendments. Over the years, the Farming and Gardening Supply has grown to include online sales, and a strong involvement in organic farming organizations and policy; in 2014 Seven Springs won the Business of the Year award from CFSA, an incredible honor.
Seven Springs CSA continues to supply Floyd County, Roanoke and Blacksburg with a thriving CSA selection, including a meat CSA, eggs, and a seasonal selection of vegetables. The selection continues to be grown organically, in clean soil, using natural pest control; their beef is grass fed and free of antibiotics.
Why grow organically?
Simply, organic food tastes better! Not using toxic pesticides in the production of food is a much healthier choice for people and the environment. Organic production helps build healthy soil, preserves diversity in our environment and provides us with the best quality food. Organic gardening takes into account Nature’s multifaceted systems ranging from the soil to the water supply, people, wildlife and even insects. An organic gardener strives to work in harmony with natural systems and continually replenishes any resources the garden consumes. By growing organically we are changing the world in a positive way. Please join in the movement and learn the principles and methods of organic gardening.
