Hazelfield farm is a diversified family-owned and family-operated farm producing almost five acres of specialty cut-flowers and over twice that much in fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs, and grains. Owners and parents, Raphe and Teresa, started selling at the Hyde Park Farmers’ Market during its first year. Since that time the family has grown. Now their oldest daughter Esmee, and her husband Todd, and their son Miller, attend the market in the produce booth and run a gourmet CSA program. Their youngest daughter, Sayward, stays busy designing custom ordered bouquets in the flower booth.
Hazelfield practices “unconventional” farming techniques. They grow everything they sell, most we started from seed, using only methods consistent with the requirements of organic certification, including integrated pest management strategies, beneficial insects, and a lot of manual work to bring customers the best products around. As you can imagine, there are a lot of animals roaming around the farm that we all consider part of the family. Cows and calves, flocks of chickens, a family of miniature donkeys, and many more. And the golden retrievers compete as man’s best friend.
