Get Rooted in your Local Community with Covey Rise Farm

By: Caroline Glattly

For the past decade, over forty of New Orleans' finest restaurants have been sourcing their freshest seasonal produce from Covey Rise Farm. Located in Tangipahoa Parish, Covey Rise Farm sits on 50 acres of land (and growing), and grows over thirty different types of crops every season! With a year-round growing season, employees at Covey Rise Farm work diligently through the hot, humid summers and cold winters to provide the best quality produce for the greater New Orleans community.

For those interested in developing a relationship with their local farm, Covey Rise offers a Local Produce Club where members can pick up a weekly sack of fresh, quality produce at a designated Covington, Ponchatoula or New Orleans locations. The selection includes an assortment of seasonal produce, from potatoes and string beans to rainbow chard and summer squash. This is an excellent program for those who want to incorporate more vegetables into their diet, reduce their environmental footprint and support their community businesses. And with Autumn approaching, nothing hits the spot better than a hearty vegetable soup made with Louisiana's finest vegetables! Don't wait long because the Local Produce Club only occurs during the heart of the growing season: spring and fall.
