At GreenLeaf Farms, enriching the soil and protecting groundwater is part of growing food. GreenLeaf Farms is recognized as one of the first certified operations in the area, earning certification by OCIA in 2000! As a certified organic vegetable farm, GreenLeaf Farms incorporates farming practices such as crop rotation to replenish soil nutrients and prevent soil erosion. To manage pests and weeds, no synthetic chemicals are used, which can lead to groundwater contamination. Instead, Tim and Joletta work with nature to prevent issues and if necessary, use only products derived from natural sources.
GreenLeaf Farms is a family-owned, 10-acre certified organic farm located near Omaha, Nebraska. One of their specialties? Gourmet garlic! In addition to garlic, Tim and Joletta love growing over 100 varieties of organic vegetables, herbs, and fresh flowers.
