Passionate Planting

OVERVIEW & PURPOSE

As a part of the local food movement, Knockout Farm has been providing fresh, organic produce to support food pantries and non-profit organizations that serve individuals in need. The Knockout Farm is Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) certified and follows proper food and safety sanitation rules. All staff and volunteers abide by standard CoVID safety practices. As an extension to Warrior efforts as growers, Knockout Farm has created a mutually beneficial partnership, where diverse farmers can connect and serve community supporters providing both with an equitable return on investment.

Warriors will continue to see their ecologically sound practices minimize food waste while meeting a demand – proving that growers of “every ability” can contribute to community health and wellness. Community partners can confidently purchase fresh produce while supporting compassion, love, and diversity in the slow food movement and expanding local commerce. Partner with us by purchasing a CSA membership and grow the mission of the Love Warrior!

What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

What is Community Supported Agriculture? Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a production and marketing model whereby consumers buy shares of a farm’s harvest in advance. Consumers become CSA members by paying an agreed amount at the beginning of the growing season, either in one lump sum or in installments.

By paying at the beginning of the season, CSA members share in the risk of production and relieve the farmer of much of the time needed for marketing. This allows the farmer to concentrate on good land stewardship, growing high-quality food and most importantly growing the Warrior Mission.

The Warrior Way of Farming

We believe the farm serves a purpose in our mission to help us facilitate a high quality and fully-accessible experience. We have built a stage that creates an opportunity for Warriors to perform, create and interact in a meaningful way. Our farming practices are organic and we believe in biodiversity. The farm is an ongoing work in progress and we continue to build systems that promote an enviornmentally responsible food system. Check out some of the things we do by scrolling thru the grid below.
