About the Farm
Tempel Farms Organics produces soil-grown, certified organic produce, cut flowers, eggs, apples, and more in beautiful Old Mill Creek, Illinois. We focus on soil health, micro-biology and habitat preservation, diversification of crops and companion planting, compost production and cover cropping, working with natural systems, and making the best possible produce available to our neighbors.
To enrich our soil and provide a healthy environment for growing high quality crops, we make generous quantities of compost using horse bedding, chopped green grasses, and food scraps all produced on the farm.
Our pasture grown hens are raised on a certified organic corn and flax vegetarian feed that is soy free, and are free of antibiotics and medications. We are proud that our flock enjoys plenty of fresh air, sunshine and vitamin rich "greens" which also translates to great eggs.
We strive to educate our customers and community about the benefits of eating locally grown food and supporting local agriculture. We continue to provide our local community produce into the deep, cold winter months with lots of storage crops and hoop house grown specialties.
We take much pride in growing fresh, high quality food for a healthy you, a healthy us, and a healthy environment.
the good folks at Tempel Farms
