Tempel Farms Organics is a diversified farm located in Old Mill Creek, Illinois. We practice sustainable agriculture that enriches our soil and provides a healthy environment for growing high quality vegetables, fruit, cut flowers and pasture raised poultry, eggs and honey. Though we are not organically certified, we raise all our crops adhering to the strict standards of organic certification. That means making our own compost and using no petroleum based pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or fertilizers. Our pasture grown animals are raised on organic corn and soy based vegetarian feeds with no antibiotics or medications and enjoy plenty of fresh air, sunshine and vitamin rich "greens" on their pasture home.
We strive to educate our customers about the benefits of eating locally grown food as well as the many benefits of supporting local agriculture. Today our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program provides 150+ families with freshly harvested vegetables and fruit from early June through the end of October.
Tempel Farms Organics is cultivating its future with a strong focus on closing the agricultural loop by producing as many of the needs of our farm as possible. This plan will include growing our own feed grain for our animals, opening a farm store, digging a pond to catch rain water for irrigation and eventually building a multi species processing facility for our farm grown meats.
We take much pride in growing fresh, high quality food for a healthy you, a healthy us and a healthy environment.
Your farmers, Chris and Tania Cubberly along with Tempel Farms Family, thank you for your support.
