Birch Creek Farms is located in scenic western Atoka County, along the Clear Boggy River and Birch Creek. The rich, fertile, sandy loam soils deposited by these two drainages provide the ideal environment for fruit and vegetable production. We utilized "sustainable agriculture" and organic practices to produce the highest quality, farm fresh produce available.
Located near the town of Wapanucka, our farm consists of approximately 700 diverse acres, both leased and owned, that have been in our family for four generations. At Birch Creek Farms, we grow a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and grass fed beef. Many of these fruits and vegetable varieties were grown on the farm by our earlier generations.
Our produce selection for 2009 includes leafy greens, such as spinach, lettuce, Swiss chard, arugula, collards, turnip greens, and mustard greens. Other spring vegetables include onions, potatoes, radishes, carrots, peas, and beets. Crops coming later in the spring and summer include yellow squash, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant, tomatoes (heirloom, beefsteak, and grape varieties), several varieties of bell peppers and hot peppers, okra, sweet corn, green beans, purple hull peas and cream peas, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, winter squash, and pumpkins. We also have Indian corn, decorative gourds, and other fall ornamentals available in Autumn.
During the Autumn Harvest we offer a pumpkin patch, maze, hay ride, petting zoo, a bounce house, and other exciting activities for the kids to enjoy. Pumpkins are available prepicked or in our u-pick pumpkin patch. We also offer many other fall ornamentals such as gourds, indian corn, corn stalks, straw bales, and mums.
We are offering CSA memberships for the 2009 growing season. From May-October, members will receive 20 weekly shares of our delicious, fresh produce. Deliveries are available in the North Texas area (Dallas/Plano/Frisco/McKinney). Weekly shares will be comprised of what is currently "in season".
At Birch Creek Farms, our goal is to provide you with a wide variety of healthy, farm fresh, high-quality produce while maintaining a healthy, productive agroecosystem.
