Home Grown, Farm Fresh Produce From Our Family To Yours
Carr Farms is a family project to teach our kids about the bounty God has provided, how to work hard toward a goal, and share with others. We welcome you to follow us as we share our experiences with you from farm to table. As produce is available we will have it for sale at the garden as well as area farmers markets from time to time. Keep an eye on the website for where to find us. If you want to come by, it might be good to call ahead and make sure we have produce available.

Who's been playing on the tractor? No telling, but the evidence is clear. They left behind a pile of legos that, undoubtedly, had been the start of an imaginative creation. I'll admit, they are better here than painfully lancing my foot in the middle of the night.
You could not ask for better timing on this rain. We have everything in the ground and this will give our seeds a great start. It looks like all the big boys farming around us are finished planting right now too.
