Certified Organic: UNSPECIFIED

Description: Rainfield Farm is an organic* farm located about an hour outside of Chicago in New Carlisle, Indiana. The farm was started by me, Shane Hansen, and I'm a marketing account manager from Chicago. While working at community gardens and volunteering in Chicago I fell in love with the lifestyle. After years of planning and research I started the farm. The farm produces a variety of fruits and vegetables with most of them being heirlooms. In addition to the vegetables we grow herbs and flowers all which are sold at the farm or local farmer's markets. Also, we have free range organic chickens and eggs are sold onsite typically March through November. This year we'll also start producing some vegetables year round in our greenhouses. In 2013 we'll put in our apple orchard so we'll have apples in a couple years (fingers crossed). If you're interested in an internship we'll start our program in 2014. Feel free to contact us for more information. *in transition until certified but currently using organic practices
