Theilen Produce Gardens is a family farm. In fact, the farm has been in the family for over a hundred years. It has constantly evolved throughout that time, Kristy's great-grandfather John built the house in 1910, farming the land and raising his 11 children with the help of his 3 oldest daughters. His son Tom took on the farm next raising rhode island red laying hens, selling the eggs and growing corn and alfalfa, his daughter Linda and her husband Eldon have been farming this same land for the last 33 years, raising hogs and now mostly growing corn and soybeans along with their son Jeremy. Their daughter Kristy came back to the farm only a few years ago to start yet a new direction growing fresh produce.
Theilen Produce Gardens attends about 2-3 markets a week in the Lincoln, Omaha and Schuyler areas. We also do our own CSA which is expanding this year to include even more share options! We are member of hip-camp and this will be our third year as a WWOOF host and we are excited to host some more visitors! We are opening up many more volunteer opportunities and community events and hope to be seeing a lot more faces on the farm this year!
