Little Halawakee Farm
Little Halawakee Farm is a micro-farm just outside of Salem, Alabama and situated firmly in Halawakee Creek area. We are focused primarily on teaching native, sustainable practices of farming and garden tending that have become continually lost to our area and culture. We subsit on just under two acres! There is a vegetable garden on site (for a family of four), a high tunnel, multiple fruit trees, chickens, a heritage rose garden, and more all fed by an unfiltered (but constantly tested) well. All processes (including the home) are as organic and natural as possible; we grow all of our plants and trees without chlorinated water, synthetic pesticides/fungicides/fertilizers or corporate/commercial products.
It’s our hope to provide a service to our community that teaches and supports sustainable practices on a small scale. While there are multiple large farms, commercial farms, and product-focused farms, our product is primarily teaching and outreach. We also do raise and sell fig trees, citrus trees, specialty turmeric, yacon, teas and plants in small quantities to help offset the cost of our own farming. We offer only three to four CSA memberships per year--primarily to friends who just want fresh, clean food.
We are just ramping up! Little Halawakee Farms will be providing workshops on site that cover seed saving, propagation, tinctures/decoctions and more. After teaching at the university level for 25 years, our head farmer has found her niche: teaching holistic, biointensive, organic gardening.
CNG is aligned with our vision. They help to support those of us who already work with nature, resisting processes and products that injure our soil and ecosystem. We love CNG!
