Buying Organic Vegetables in Franklin TN was not always an easy thing to do. The Delvin family has been providing local produce since 1972. Their 94 acre farm is located in the town of College Grove, south and east of Franklin. They grow a wonderful variety of organic veggies almost all year long.
“We believe in growing methods that improve our environment by enhancing the quality of our water, building our soils for healthy plants and by not using harmful chemicals in our farming. Our organic vegetables are packed with nutrients extracted from our deep mineral rich soils, clean air and fresh water. “ says Cindy Delvin.
Hank and Cindy Delvin are the heart and soul behind this farm. Neither of them were here on Saturday because the prior Saturday, on his way to the market with a truck full of vegetables, Hank was in a head-on collision. He is doing better, but still in the hospital. You can follow his progress at their blog delvinfarmsorganic.
The Delvin family farm consists of Hank and Cindy (mom and dad) their daughter Amy, their son Hank Jr., his wife Liz and baby Ryder.
When looking for Organic Vegetables in the Franklin TN area, one usually ends up at a Community Supported Agriculture farmer, commonly known as CSA. People usually join a CSA project for fresh, ripe, and locally grown foods. Anyone who has bought tomatoes after November or before May, know that they are picked green and then shipped across the United States, hoping that they ripen along the way. They are often genetically engineered to survive these long trips. That's assuming, of course, that they're even grown in the USA.
With access to a farm, the freshness and taste totally astonds many. Cindy will tell you: "People start eating vegetables they never liked before because they had never tasted them vine-ripened and chemical-free. By providing this service, consumers can be certain, through direct contact and knowing their grower, that their food is produced in the safest of environments."
The Delvins can be found each Saturday at the Franklin Farmers Market. Located behind the Factory on Franklin Road. You may also visit them at their farm in College Grove. For more information, or directions visit their website Delvin Farms.
