Battle Creek Gardens is a small-scale farm located about 6 miles outside of Hermosa, SD on the campus of Black Hills Health & Education Center. We are Certified Naturally Grown, a grassroots alternative to Certified Organics. We will be growing more than 70 varieties of vegetables, melons & herbs this season. We market our produce through local food co-ops, local restaurants, farmers markets and through our Community Supported Agriculture Subscription program.
Our goal at BHHEC’s Battle Creek Gardens is to work in harmony with nature to produce nutrient-dense, health-giving vegetables and fruits to help those participating in our wellness program to more rapidly achieve improved health, and more energy. We also desire to provide the best quality produce we can possibly grow to share with our customers. We believe that by working with the laws of nature, and asking the Lord to bless the land and our efforts, we can successfully practice good land stewardship.
We are currently growing wheatgrass for the Black Hills Health and Education Center and soon we will be supplying the Center with farm fresh vegetables.
