Joe Fekete’s Family Farm
Still planning and shopping for your holiday meals? Look no further! This time of year, Joe Fekete Family Farm’s table is full of beets, kale, mustard greens, turnips, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, eggplant, and heirloom tomatoes. Joe and his wife Margaret run Fekete Family Farm outside of Amite, Louisiana with the help of their kids, Jessica, Amanda, Sarah, and Nathan. After retiring from a career in education, Joe wanted to return to his roots and reconnect with the earth. Farming has allowed him to settle into his niche: playing in the dirt. By growing seasonal produce and embracing the cyclical nature of the land, Joe Fekete’s Family Farm helps to restore balance in nature and in his local community. Joe and his family feel thankful to be stewards of the land and to share the bounty with their valued CCFM customers! Find Joe Fekete Family Farm each week at our Tuesday Uptown market.
