Welcome to Whaleyville Farms Design by Cad Concepts

Hi Everyone,

We are back farming after a two year medical break and eager to see our customers again.

For the new customers, we are Ken and Terry Keiger. We have lived on this farm for 12 years and have farmed organically from the beginning. We do not use any insecticide or herbicide on the farm. We have always followed the National Organic Program but elected not to be certified. We had lots of fun, heartache, rain, wind, bugs, and hurricanes. But most of all we have wonderful customers. They are always there when we needed a boost. Each year we learn what we were doing wrong, what will work and made changes for the better.

In the past we have had: a CSA, participated in a farmer’s market, and developed a home delivery service.

Because of surgeries and illness we stopped farming for the past two years, but we are back now!

Whaleyville Farms Mission Statement

Whaleyville Farms seeks to promote a sustainable, organic, local food supply and develop a relationship with the area communities. The farmer and shareholder will share the risks of farming and provide the freshest local organic produce to the shareholders.
