good food grown here
Common Good Farm is a mom & pop family farm...small, sustainable, certified organic & Biodynamic...growing good food since Autumn of 1996 for southeast Nebraska. We are just 15 miles northwest of Lincoln, near Raymond. We’re committed to sustaining a family farm in Lancaster County to provide delicious, healthful food for our community & neighbors...to tend the soil, grow the food & love the land.
We grow over 45 different kinds of produce -- 4 acres of veggies & herbs. We also have veggie & herb plants in the springtime at our organic plant sale, raise pastured pork, grass-fed beef & a pasture-based laying flock for gorgeous organic eggs.
The heartbeat of our farm is our CSA, offering seasonal CSA shares with an option for a 12-week and 15-week Summer CSA & a separate Fall Harvest CSA...do both or choose the one that works best for your family! We're at Old Cheney Farmer’s Market in Lincoln also...Sundays beginning the last Sunday in April.
Eggs are available year-round at the farm & at Open Harvest in Lincoln. Open Harvest also carries our produce seasonally. Meat is butchered annually in late fall/early winter. We also sell wholesale to restaurants & grocers in Lincoln...hopefully at your favorite places!
Here's the highlights again...busy farm, good food, jump in & dig deeper!
