Gallatin Valley Botanical July 22, 2014
Gallatin Valley Botanical is a small farm in Bozeman, Montana dedicated to the sustainable production of high quality produce. We started our farm with a shared love of each other, eating well, and the earth and have been providing beautiful fresh produce to our community since 2003.
Our CSA has become the backbone of our farm, helping to bring in steady, year round income. We work with nature to maintain soil fertility and balance insect pest problems, using crop rotation, beneficial insect attracting plantings, composted manure, and cover crops. Our produce is planted, picked, and washed by ourselves, CSA working members, and interns who are working with us to learn about small scale, direct market farming. We are continually working towards a financially and ecologically sustainable farm that can help feed our neighbors and build a community. Every year, we plan for a wide variety of clean, healthy, fresh veggies to be delivered weekly to neighborhoods in Bozeman, West Yellowstone, and Big Sky. Pick-up at the farm is also available.
Diversity is crucial to our success, in crop planning and in marketing. We grow up to 150 varieties of produce and market them to a 120 person CSA, twelve enlightened restaurants, the Community Food Coop, and two summer and one winter farmers markets in Bozeman.
