The Chuckleberry community is based on 21 acres of land that has been established for 18 years. Of that 1 acre is being utilized for growing a wide variety of crops. We are in our 7th farming season.
The Farm is predominantly based on one acre of land in the middle of a south facing forested mountain side. Our microgreens crop is grown in a 600 sq ft in-ground greenhouse that is predominantly heated and powered by the sun. Of our outside crops about half are grown in insulated raised bed hoop houses that support year-round cultivation. Chuckleberry Community Farm grows food not just for physical nourishment, but for relationship development, for personal growth and for the building of community resiliency.
The vision for Chuckleberry is to generate a place of thriving abundance blossoming on many levels. We endeavor to maintain a local, high quality food production system while inspiring the personal growth and every-deepening development of all those involved.
