About Our Family Farm
Holman’s Harvest is a small family farm owned by Marty and Liza Holman. We are located in Loxahatchee Groves, Florida. Our primary focus is growing salad greens, but have expanded ourselves with tropical fruits and pasture-raised chicken eggs. We grow all of our crops in the soil, and consistently strive to have a healthy living soil to produce the best tasting crops. Our farm does not use synthetic herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers, and we only use OMRI listed products whenever necessary.
At Holman’s Harvest, our goal is to serve our local residents and restaurants. We invite you to visit our farm to see our products before they reach you.
We want to provide people with good, quality, healthy food with the taste that mother nature intended while leveraging the natural components that have already been given to us. Naturally derived OMRI approved products (fertilizers, herbicides, & pesticides) are a last resort for resolving issues.
The use of permaculture helps to replicate the natural occurring ecosystem. We are intentionally setting aside areas within our crops for habitats that will attract pollinators and beneficial insects. These “Habitat Strips” will also replenish beneficial nutrients to the soil by attracting Nitrogen fixing species that actually enrich the soil.
Methodologies for farming are changing at all scales – there is still a lot of work that needs to be done to improve our food system though. We will never stop learning about farming both because of our attitude and the nature of farming. We become a better farm every year because of our experience and education. Very thankful to be farming at a time when we have the opportunity to make our small farm a successful business.
Here at Holman’s Harvest Farm we always have some events to look forward to. Wether its the start of our CSA seasons, fundraisers, etc. We always have something to look forward to.
