Whirlwind Farm has been growing and providing locally grown, clean food for 17 years. Where soil health and diversity means health not only in our nutrient dense food and our farm but in the health of the people who eat our food, it radiates out to the health of our local community and economy.

      Come see us or volunteer at the farm, look for us at area farmers markets, or shop at our on line store where you can get food year round not only from us but from some of our other farming friends as we work together to bring you the best we have to offer. Thank you for supporting your farming community.


     We feature recipes for in season produce that you may not know what to do with.  Or just a different twist on the familiar. We also encourage anyone to contact us and share a favorite recipe they may have.

    Nutritional information  is included for the main vegetable in the recipe for those who are health conscience, to make informative decisions concerning their food.

We also have buttons below that will allow you to surf our archived Recipes for what interests you.

This is one thing you can do with an abundance of eggs, it is also a way of using up little bits of  vegetable odd and ends in your fridge.

New Recipe; Quiche

One 1/2 of a pie crust recipe rolled and fitted to a  9'-10' deep pie pan or casserole dish. I cheat and use the ready made crusts.

Recently I made one using greens and herbs from the garden.


1 med onion thinly sliced                                   1c. fresh mushrooms sliced                           1/2 cup diced sun dried tomatoes                     1 c. chopped sorrel                                             1 c. spinach                                                   1/4 c. finely   chopped garlic chives                  8 eggs                                                                  1 3/4 c. cream                                                 2c. shredded swiss cheese                                  1t. savory                                                            1/2 t. nutmeg                                                         salt & pepper to taste

Sauté' onions, sundried tomatoes until soft, let cool while you beat eggs and cream together, add rest of the ingredients stir, add sautéed onions and tomatoes. Pour into crust, cover with tin foil, bake at 400 for 1 hr. take foil off cook for an additional 15-20 min. it should jiggle a little when it is done. You may need to cook an additional 5- 10 min. if needed.

News from  the farm

March 12 2018

What a wet spring! A friend told me it rained all but 8 days in February and I believe it. About the time it starts to dry up it rains again. We are chomping at the bit to get into the field and get our greenhouse covered with plastic. Hopefully both will happen this week. The wind should dry it out and die down by Wednesday soo we can get the plastic on. Whish us luck we could be blown into the next county.             We are also starting another farmers market just south of Ft. Payne on hwy. 11 on Tuesdays at 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Ft. Payne Family Worship Center across from the iron fabricating place. Then we will be down at Wills Valley Family Medicine from 3:00 - 5:oo so folks on the other side of Sand Mtn will be getting some great clean food from your farmers in and around Sand Mtn. Come out and support us starting the first Tuesday in May. I will update if anything has changed between now and then.  We have baby collards, green onions, kale, cilantro, garlic chives coming out of the garden now.                     Next Tuesday I will be at Wills Valley Family Medicine with veggies and eggs should be there. Come and see us.
