We are Lindy & Matt Geraets. We have a great appreciation for quality food (Matt is a chef) and feel we are improving the local food scene each year. When we’re not growing produce and fruit, we enjoy travel. There’s always another adventure on the horizon.
Lindy’s parents, Debby & Crayton Bouchie, have an 80 acre farm about 20 miles east of Pierre, SD. This is where Lindy grew up and where we farm about 3 acres. 2020 will be our 12th farmers’ market season. We learn something new every year and feel like we master a few things each year.
We believe is growing healthy food, therefore we use organic practices. We try not to use any sprays or powders on our produce, but if we have to, we use organic products.
Find us at the Capital City Farmer’s Market every Saturday from May through October! Check out the market blog at http://capcitymarket.wordpress.com/.
Matt and Lindy,
I just wanted to share with you a website that I think you and your bloggers might enjoy. Through a good friend that I grew up with in Hot Springs who moved to California when we were still young, I met Shauna James Ahern, otherwise known as Gluten-free Girl. She has an amazing! amazing! blog called Gluten-free Girl and the Chef. She is truly an inspiring chef and person.
Your desire to produce good, honest foods resembles much of what she and her chef husband, Danny do as well. And, you’ll be hooked by their cute daughter, Lu, that is an integral part of their culinary experience and blogging stories. Their family lives and breathes this stuff like oxygen. Just as we all should!
Thanks, Stacey! I’ll check it out.
I noticed you said that you havested some garlic – you don’t still have the greens, by any chance? I’m waffling about whether to come to market or go on my monthly out-of-town shop this weekend, but if there were garlic greens on offer, it wouldn’t even be a question!
Hi….I’m so sorry to not have responded until now! My apologies. I hope you went shopping, though, because the garlic greens were gone long ago. Until Spring…
Do you still have green beans? Can a customer drive out to you and purchase produce?
We do still have green beans and hopefully will for a while. We typically just sell at market on Saturday mornings…at least, at this time. Are you available to stop on Saturday between 9am and 1pm?
Do you happen to know anyone that has Okra? If so would you please contact me by email as I am interested in purchasing some.
We’ve got okra in the garden, but it is going slow and we’re not sure if we’ll get any. I don’t know of anyone who has okra as of today. If you’ld like, we can add you to our weekly e-mail to let you know what we’ll have at market. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.
