Joe Fekete’s Family Farm
This family-owned and operated farm grows produce right outside of Amite, Louisiana. A career educator now retired, Joe Fekete wanted to get back to his roots and reconnect with the earth. Farming has allowed him to settle into his niche: playing in the dirt. This farmer embraces the cyclical nature of the land and doesn’t try to fight mother nature. By growing seasonal produce, Joe Fekete’s Family Farm helps to restore balance in nature and in the local community. Hungry for more? Check out what seasonal goodies Joe and the fam are bringing to our new Bucktown Drive-Thru market on Wednesdays!
