About Our Farm
Mighty Greens Farm is located right on the border of Geneva and Elburn. We are a small, family-owned farm that focuses on growing the highest quality produce around! We never spray our crops with any herbicides, fungicides or pesticides and take great care to maintain the integrity of our soils. Most of the work done on our land is done by hand (yes, even the weeding!) When available, we always opt for organic seeds and will be growing a wide variety of heirloom crops.
In our greenhouse we grow micro and petite greens year-round. We harvest all of our veggies at their peak ripeness to ensure that you are receiving the most flavorful, nutrient dense vegetables possible.
Meet the Farmers
The Owners, Farmer Carlos, Katie, Henry and George
Carlos and Katie Palomares started Mighty Greens Farm in September 2014. Farmer Carlos has spent many years managing other folks' organic farms and is ecstatic to finally have a farm to call his own! He is a passionate and dedicated steward of the land. It is his mission to consistently provide his local community with fresh vegetables year-round.
Farmer Katie is a Nutritionist and will begin a Masters program in Dietetics this coming Fall at NIU. She believes that eating healthy doesn't need to be a chore but rather a joyful (and tasty) experience that begins with the seeds we sow.
Farmer Henry started his career at a very young age (I have a picture of him in the baby carrier at two months old as I harvested tomatoes). He is always eager to help dig up dirt and find the biggest worms. Farmer George was born just days before our very first CSA Season got underway! He loves being at the farm - especially when he can help water the plants!
The 2017 Farm Crew!
(From left to right: Megan Parks, Shawna Serrato, Sara Schluchter)
Sara Schluchter has been a friend of Mighty Greens since the very beginning and she officially joined the team in 2016. She is a dedicated farmer that is committed to caring for every last veggie plant. You can meet Sara at the St. Charles Farmer's Market on Fridays.
Shawna Serrato started off working a few hours a week helping with the sowings. This season she decided to jump all in and joined us full-time for the season! She is a ray of sunshine on the farm and we are so thrilled to have her with us!
Megan Parks joined us this season. She is brand-new to farming and we just love to see her enthusiasm and eagerness to learn!
We have a great farm crew for the 2017 season!
