About Us / 26th Street Farm History: 26th Street Farm is a 1.5 acre and growing diversified vegetable, herb and flower farm in Hastings, Nebraska run by Hannah Keen and Will Boal. After meeting and working together for a season at a farm outside of Olympia, Washington, in 2012 Will (originally from Portland, Oregon) and Hannah established 26th Street Farm on the family land Hannah grew up on. After a difficult but extremely rewarding first year, we are excited to begin our second year farming on our own at 26th Street.Although 26th Street Farm is not yet certified organic (due to being a small start-up and the high costs of certification), our pledge as farmers is to follow the regulations set forth by the National Organic Program.Our produce is hand-tended, and we strive to make choices to increase farming sustainably. We do not apply artificial fertilizers and our seeds are non-GMO varieties, which are often times certified organic. In the rare event that we need to treat for an insect problem, we use only plant, mineral or natural bacteria based products that the NOP allows. We regularly rotate and cover crop our fields to enhance the life of our soil, and take full advantage of our on-site apiary and beneficial insect plantings to aid in pollination.We are a community farm and our products are all directly marketed in the Hastings area through our CSA program and our attendance at Highland Park Farmer's Market (June through October). We look forward to sharing the bounty with you.
