More about Armbrust Farms, and the site

When I started this website, I intended it to be a regularly updated blog about the farm. That never really got rolling, mostly due to the farm (and life) keeping me a lot busier than I expected. So anyone who’s visiting the site probably gets the impression that it’s not very current — because it isn’t.

From now on, there will be a few updates, but not as a true blog. More of just information about Armbrust Farms, what we sell, where we sell it, and so on.

So, for now, here’s some information on that: I sell at the Omaha Farmers Market in the Old Market on Saturday mornings from 8 to 12:30, and at the Florence Mill Farmers Market (North 30th and I-680, by the Mormon Bridge) on Sundays from 11 to 3.

I grow essentially all of my produce without spraying pesticides, and I pull or hoe weeds rather than spraying them. It’s not certified organic, but it’s virtually that way.

My products range from sweet corn to onions, beets to tomatoes, pumpkins to cantaloupe, gourds to zucchini. I grow over 50 varieties in a given season, and I also grow ornamental potted plants and perennial flowers such as asiatic lilies and heirloom hollyhocks.

If you’re interested in any of my products, please get in touch with me or come see me at the market!
