    Comments from a visitor on June 29, 2012:
    "Farm is very conveniently located to metropolitan Indy. We picked black raspberries here 3 times during peak season. Bushes are very healthy and the berries are irrigated so the drought didn't affect their size as much as I saw on other Indiana farms. The black raspberry prices are a little high but considering the prices for gas, you really won't spend more money picking here if you had to drive further. The staff was pleasant and the picking atmosphere was very easy going. All in all, a great picking experience and delicious black raspberries."
    Comments from a visitor on October 30, 2008:
    "There is a country store with ice cream, fudge and 20 different kinds of home-made pies. Also the best cinnamon rolls are made there every morning. During the month of October there is free hay rides to the pumkin patch. Picking your own berries was a very fun time on the farm. They have a farm dog which seems to really love all the attention. The country store was remodeled this year with a new bakery and some of the best pies that I have tasted. The baker is within view while he is preparing the pies so that you know they are made right there. The cinnamon rolls are to die for and are made every day." (UPDATED: October 30, 2008)

Nothing but Nature Farm was established to compliment a small family farm operation. The family members all work off the farm and wanted a project that would bring the family back together for fun and profit. Five wind generators stand as guards at the front of the farm erected in 2007 to produce electricity for our needs. A high tunnel was built and this started our project. Our goal is to produce products year round, such as salad greens and other cold tolerant produce, and to supply seasonal products ahead of the local market. We specialize in many varieties of tomatoes and peppers. Other areas of vegetable production are being reviewed and explored on an ongoing basis. We use natural ways to grow our products and control pests. In season we also grow other vegetables and fruit to sell at local farmers markets and restaurants. In June 2009, we will be welcoming a wide variety of Brown, White, and Easter egg laying chicks. They will be free range and naturally fed. Eggs will be available to buy. In October we will also be welcoming Large Black Hogs and Red Wattles. We are very passionate about keeping critically endangered heritage breeds around for coming generations. The pigs have a very docile temperament and are a pasture animal. The pork is lean yet micro-marbled for a moist product on the grill or in the oven. The texture of the pork is extra tender due to the short muscle fibers which has earned it a place in some of the most exclusive restaurants in New York and Europe. The meat is slightly darker in color with an old world flavor. Large Black Hogs are also famous for their exceptional bacon. We welcome visitors to the farm anytime! Please feel free to contact us anytime! We also DELIVER!. (ADDED: May 26, 2010)

Home Canning Kits

Features:

Ball Enamel Waterbath Canner, Including Chrome-Plated Rack and 4-Piece Utensil Set

* All the tools you need for hot waterbath canning - in one comprehensive set!
* Complete with 21 1/2 qt. enameled waterbath canner
* Also includes canning rack, funnel, jar lifter, jar wrencher, bubble freer, tongs and lid lifter.
* A Kitchen Krafts exclusive collection.

This is the same type of standard canner that my grandmother used to make everything from applesauce to jams and jellies to tomato and spaghetti sauce. This complete kit includes everything you need and lasts for years: the canner, jar rack, jar grabber tongs, lid lifting wand, a plastic funnel, labels, bubble freer. It's much cheaper than buying the items separately. You'll never need anything else except jars & lids (and the jars are reusable)! There is also a simple kit with just the canner and rack, and a pressure canner, if you want to do vegetables (other than tomatoes). To see more canners, of different styles, makes and prices, click here!
Don't forget the Ball Blue Book!
