Oksana's  Produce Farm

The Farm

   

Organic food is better for your family’s health and the planet. Buying organic is a direct investment in the future of our food system, so it’s a choice you can feel good about. At Oksana’s Produce Farm, we are in transition to become a certified organic farm and should be certified by 2017. We follow all of the National Organic Program protocol.

Oksana's Produce Farm is a small scale organic farm located in Chestertown Maryland, where we grow a diverse mix of vegetables and herbs on 7 acres. In addition to rejecting agricultural chemicals we are searching for better ways to farm. We feed our soil, and in turn the soil feeds our plants, by working on soil quality using various strategies to regenerate top soil. We pay great attention to diversity by implementing a cover crop system, rotating crops, and recycling unused plants back in the soil in the form of compost. We are trying to understand the partnership between plants and soils microorganisms as well as increase carbon contents of our soil. These strategies, over time, will lead to production of more nutrient –dense food.  Our practices go way beyond organic. We create a beautiful, diverse, and productive ecosystem which provides natural conditions for our plants.
