Kat the Farmer
Salad Kits, Salad Fixin’s & Salad Greens
Kat The Farmer, is a salad-centric farmer who is dedicated to the work of growing food for her community and is working hard to educate consumers as to why ‘the worlds best salads are always locally grown!’
Kat’s ‘farmlet’ is an aptly named tiny farm growing salad crops on just ¼ acre in Floyd County. Her farmlet has three passive solar tunnels to increase quality and extend the season and one small nursery where everything is grown from seed. As a one-woman farm she tends her land without chemical fertilizers, pesticides or GMOs, and is Certified Naturally Grown which means her growing practices are reviewed by a peer farmer and customers each season.
Seasonal crops include greens and salad mixes, microgreens, roots, herbs, tomatoes and cucumbers. In addition to growing crops, Kat also makes fresh salad dressings and prepared salad kits for those needing a convenient lunch, or healthy meal prep option.
With a focus on soil health and superior shelf life, you’ll be amazed at the difference a locally grown salad will make!
Visitors will find the best selection of products by shopping at the Blacksburg Farmers Market on Saturdays and are welcome to pre-order online for pickup at designated drop sites throughout the region.
