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.”

It is hard to believe that out 10th produce club season has come and gone. Grady and the gang did an excellent job with the harvest for each of 12 weeks delivered to Simplee Gourmet. I will be in touch with our past members and mailing list recipients in August will plans for the Fall/Winter 2015 program. Thank you for allowing us to do what we love!
