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.”

The Fall 2013 local produce club will be ending on December 18th; we are no longer accepting members at this time. We started the 12 week season with the end of summer harvest and have been enjoying lots of broccoli, turnips, salad mix, arugula, kale, chard, cauliflower, carrots, radishes, cabbage, satsumas, shallots & sweet potatoes lately. We will be sending out an email to mailing list and past season members in late February with details for the Spring. We love the idea of feeding families on our area and appreciate the commitment on your part to eatting seasonally and locally.
