Barefoot Gardens is a market garden located three miles west of the Western Illinois University Campus in Macomb, Illinois. We chose the name Barefoot Gardens because we feel the bare foot symbolizes our commitment to being good stewards of the land. At a time when agricultural technology increasingly alienates farmers from the ground that they work, we’ve chosen a gentler, more cooperative approach to working with the landscape.
In short, our vision is to work with, rather than against nature, as we strive to bring you the most flavorful produce that we can grow.
What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?
CSA is a movement that brings people, food, and land together by creating a partnership between community members and local food growers. Individuals pay for a season’s worth or “share” of produce, in advance. The grower then provides produce on a weekly basis (according to what is ready for harvest) throughout the duration of the growing season.
Why participate in Barefoot Gardens’ CSA program ?
Participating in our program assures you a constant supply of fresh, locally grown produce. It has been said that the only way to be sure of eating pure food is to know the first name of the grower. At Barefoot Gardens, his name is John.
