At Hines Valley Farm we 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 buy from us!-- Saturdays 9-2 at Market Square* in downtown Knoxville.
This week from the farm
December Saturday market at Market Square runs 12-3PM. I will attend at least the first two, December 7 and 14.
Kale(red Russian, curly, and Lacinato); arugula; green or red leaf lettuces, butterhead, or romaine; red, chiogga, or gold beets; red or orange carrots; purple bok choi; tat soi; red mustard (hot like wasabi!); red or white turnips; purple or green kohlrabi; collards.
The Hines Valley Farm on facebook has nothing to do with me! It is instead a development group trying to sell land.
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.
*Market Square lies between Walnut, Wall, S. Gay, and Union streets downtown.
Hines Valley Farm is half an hour west of Knoxville, on the western edge of Lenoir City, 19801 Hines Valley Road. Email us
