Welcome To Black River Organic Farm!
Black River is a small farm, owned & operated by Stefan Hartmann on family land on the Black River in Sampson County. The farm is run with help from an excellent seasonal staff that lives and works on the farm. During the height of the harvest, additional seasonal help comes in to harvest crops every week. Fresh produce is packed and shipped with care and speed to deliver delicious products from the field to your table at their peak of flavor and freshness.
For over fifteen years, Black River has been committed to producing the best organically grown vegetables in the area. Each season, a selection of traditional and heirloom vegetables is grown on this 16 acre certified organic farm using carefully selected varieties and timetested growing methods to provide you with the highest quality and greatest taste. Vegetables are available at several regional farmers markets, are sold wholesale to restaurants and organic produce distributors, and are distributed through the CSA program.
Joining a CSA is one of the best ways to feed your passion for healthy, delicious, nutritious foods, and support local farmers and sustainable agriculture at the same time!
