Located in the flint hills of east central Kansas, Shepherd’s Valley is a family-owned 90-acre diversified farm, featuring organically grown fruits, vegetables, and herbs, direct marketed to consumers through three seasonal CSA subscription share programs. The Spring CSA share runs 8 weeks from early April through May. The main season Summer CSA share runs 13 weeks from June through August. The Fall CSA share extends the season 8 more weeks from early September through October. Our Winter Green fresh salad greens and cold-hardy crops are available locally on an “as-we-have-it” basis. Hundreds of people eat from the gardens at Shepherd’s Valley every week during the growing season. We have been providing wholesome foods using chemical-free, biologically sound methods for over 35 years. We follow organic and sustainable principles in all aspects of farming.
Shepherd’s Valley also raises pastured poultry
Corriedale sheep and lambs provide our customers with premium table fare and beautiful handspinner quality wool. A growing number of handspinners are discovering our prize-winning wool fleeces. Our lambs are 100% naturally grown on Psalm 23 green pastures and hay. Everyone who tries our lamb meat comes back for more! A number of area chefs find no comparison equal to Shepherd’s Valley lamb.
As beekeepers for many years, we have been providing our customers with raw honey and bee pollen, as well as other value-added products such as locally produced jams and jellies. You do not have to be a member of the CSA to purchase farm products, however our shareholders receive first priority in purchasing surplus produce.
Shepherd’s Valley is located northwest of Americus, Kansas. We are a 20-minute drive from Emporia, and an hour’s scenic drive from Topeka or Manhattan.
