Know Your Farmer:
We started Flying S Farms in 2003, with a strong desire to produce clean, healthy food through good stewardship of the land.
Our name Flying S Farms came from a family history of flying and reaching for the highest standards we can to provide you with the best we can grow or raise.
We believe that a healthy soil produces healthy plants, which produces healthy people. We use cover crops to build soil productivity along with the Albrecht System feeding the soil that reduces the need of commercial fertilizers or pesticides. We strive to use Organic and Sustainable growing methods and use non-GMO seeds.
The CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) concept includes a sharing of risk. We cannot control the weather. However, we will do our best to provide what we have planned, but if we have a natural disaster that ruins our crops, we thank you for supporting us and sharing the risk.

Our 2019 CSA Subscriptions will consist of an twenty-one week season starting
May 22nd through October 12th.
Members may pick up their share at our Farm by appointment. We will also deliver to the Franklin Farmers' Market, East Nashville Farmers' Market and Stones River Locally Grown Market Pick up Location. Personal Home or Business deliveries are available in Cannon and Rutherford Counties.
A weekly Full Share is a half-bushel basket containing enough produce for approximately 4 people, depending on your eating and cooking habits. Half Weekly Shares are also available. New this season we are offering both Full and Half Bi-Weekly Shares delivered every other week. The Bi-Weekly Options is great for those who are unable to come to the market weekly
or for small families.
We now have Free Range Chicken Egg Shares available to our CSA Members and Customers.
2019 Introducing Sour Dough Bread Shares to our CSA Members and Customers.
Along with your produce, when available, you may occasionally receive value-added items, a newsletter with recipes, farm news and tips on how to use and store your produce.
Reasons to Eat Local Food:
Eating local means more for the local economy. A dollar spent locally generates twice as much income for the local economy. When businesses are not owned locally, money leaves the community at every transaction.
Locally grown produce is fresher. Most produce has been in transit or cold-stored for days or weeks. Freshness affects both the taste of your food and the nutritional value.
Locally grown fruits & vegetables have longer to ripen & taste better. Locally grown fruit does not have to be shipped thousands of miles and is allowed to ripen until the last possible minute on the vine.
Buying local food keeps us in touch with the seasons. By eating with the seasons, we can eat foods when they are at their peak flavor and nutrition, are most abundant - and the least expensive.
Buying locally grown food is fodder for a wonderful story. Knowing part of the story about your food is part of enjoying a meal.
Eating local means greater food security. Food with less distance to travel from farm to plate has less susceptibility to harmful contamination.
Local food translates to more variety. Farmers can try small crops of unusual or heirloom varieties that would probably never make it to a large market.
