Who we are
Covey Rise Farms is located near Husser, Louisiana in central Tangipahoa Parish and is part of the Covey Rise Sportsman’s Retreat. The Farm started growing vegetables on 10 acres in 2009 and has expanded to 50 acres for the 2013 season. Our vegetables are enjoyed at over 40 of the New Orleans area finest restaurants and by our Local Produce Club/CSA members. We grow multiple varieties of over 30 types of vegetables throughout our growing season which is year round. Our Local Produce Club/CSA runs in the spring and fall during heart of the growing season and includes both cool and warm weather crops. We grow conventionally under the direction of a retired LSU Agriculture Professor, who acts as our crop consultant. In 2012 we started nearby Chappapeela Farms which is the “coolest little duck farm in the south, raising the prettiest hogs around.”

This week was our last delivery for the 2014 spring/summer local produce club. We began in April with late winter harvest including: lettuce, kale, beets, turnips, sweet potatoes, radishes, green garlic, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, pac choi, chard, cabbage...the list goes on. As things warmed up we enjoyed: eggplant, squash, string beans, bell peppers, mixed peppers, cucumbers, blue berries, spring onions, potatoes, sun flowers and of course, lots and lots of flavorful tomatoes. We will begin taking sign ups for the fall/winter season late in August; deliveries will start around the 3rd week of September. An email will be sent to last season's members and all mailing list members.
