At Hines Valley Farm I grow vegetables of superb taste; sell locally to keep our produce fresh; and farm according to USDA organic rules in order to minimize environmental harm.
Please visit and shop the Market Square Farmers Market May-December at Market Square in downtown Knoxville.

I have learned that many assume that all market farmers sell organic produce. This assumption is false. The majority of growers in the Knoxville markets are conventional. My USDA organic status is verified by independent inspection. Some farmers operate under the "certified naturally grown" standard similar to USDA organic: this regime is self-policed by member growers. Please see organic farming for details.
Hines Valley Farm is half an hour west of Knoxville, on the western edge of Lenoir City, 19801 Hines Valley Road. Email
