If you wish to order before market, email me:

I decided against Venmo(Paypal) since they charge business accounts 2.9% plus $.30 per transaction. This would be just under 8% for a $6 order.


I am sold out of CSA shares for 2020.


You may also find Hines Valley Farm produce at Three Rivers Market as well as on the menu of The Plaid Apron in Sequoyah Hills and Northshore Brasserie in west Knoxville.




My USDA organic status is verified by independent inspection under USDA supervision. Some farmers operate under the "certified naturally grown" standard similar to USDA organic: this regime is policed by member growers. Please see organic farming for details.
