We Follow The 'Plant Positive' Rather Than 'Pest Negative' Idea In Our Farming
Meaning we believe in growing healthy, strong plants in soil that is just as equally healthy to ward against, rather than kill pest. We have a deep affection for pollinators and choose not to spray for anything, pests included!
Backyard Produce & Cut Flowers is located in western South Dakota, in the small community of Belle Fourche. We are a small scale operation, cultivating on only one acre of land. We use many of the components in biointensive agriculture on our farm including raised beds, composting, intensive spacing and other methods for successful sustainability. We also plan and rotate our crops to ensure we get the most yield out of our one acre.
Backyard Produce & Cut Flowers is a direct to consumer farm and strides to provide local, fresh produce and cut flowers to the surrounding communities. You can find our produce and cut flowers by joining our small CSA, for more information click here and at The Black Hills Farmers Market located in Rapid City, SD at 145 E. Omaha St., for the map click here. Beginning Saturday, May 12th, 2018 from 8am-2pm you can find us at the market every Saturday and beginning July 11th, 2018 a second market will be added during the week on Wednesdays with the same hours from 8am-2pm. The Black Hills Farmers Market will end October 27th, 2018 for the season.
We work hard to ensure our produce is clean and flowers are long lasting by properly handling our products during harvest and post harvest. We believe in soil health and keeping it healthy for the long term by practicing sustainable farming methods. The future for small scale farming and these practices are looking bright and we are so thrilled to be a part of it!
