good food grown here:
Common Good Farm is a mom & pop family farm...small, sustainable, certified organic & Biodynamic...growing good food for 17 years in southeast Nebraska, 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 Summer Harvest & a separate Fall Harvest Share...do both or choose the one that works best for your family! We're at Old Cheney Farmer’s Market in Lincoln; find us there for the first half of the season.
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!
