Teter Farm - Do good. Eat well.
Who We Are - Teter Farm is an outreach mission of Noblesville First United Methodist Church which grows over 40 varieties of vegetables and fruits on 3 acres in Noblesville, IN.
Why We Grow - Because we believe everyone deserves to eat healthy food. We grow exempt organic produce for local food pantries, food banks, and feeding programs, as well as, sustainably-grown produce for a 25-member CSA and the Noblesville Farmer's Market (selling under the name Teter Farm).
How We Grow - All of our produce is locally grown using sustainable growing practices and without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. We utilize cover crops and natural soil amendments that contribute to healthy soils and healthy food. Currently we are not certified Organic, but are undergoing the process to become Certified Organic by the USDA, if you have more questions about what that means, let us know! Our sustainable growing practices will remain the same, but once certified, we will be able to use the word "Organic" to describe what we do. The Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA for short) is the organization that will be reviewing our application and assigning an inspector for our farm.
We grow on 30" raised beds in standardized 150' rows.
