Haderlie Farms is dedicated to supplying their customers with the freshest and highest quality vegetables, eggs, meats, baked goods, flowers, herbs, plant starts and artisan goods.
Haderlie Farms works to find new and innovative methods to protect our natural resources, support our local economy, provide meaningful work, and return to a more self-sufficient community life. We realize the importance of educating the community about the benefits of sustainable agriculture practices to our lives and our land. We dedicate a portion of our personal time to building gardens for their our local community as well as providing fun and informative educational programs for children and adults.
We are located at 981 North Main St. in Thayne just north of Star Valley Skidoo on the west side of Highway 89. We are open 10-5:30 M-F and 10-2 on Saturday. The Star Valley Farmers Market is located on the farm on Thursday afternoons from 5:30 to 7:30pm. Please call or stop by and check out our wide variety of locally grown items.
Haderlie Farms was founded in 1945 by LaMar and Edith Haderlie. In the past it was a dairy farm and then a beef operation. In 2001 Curtis and Karen Haderlie purchased the farm and began to diversify into the many products we now offer including Wind River Herbs and Wyoming Soaps.
Reasons to Buy Local
Freshness. Locally-grown fruits and vegetables are usually harvested within 24 hours of being purchased by the consumer. Produce shipped in can’t be that fresh.
Taste. Produce picked and eaten at the height of freshness tastes better.
Nutrition. Nutritional value declines, often dramatically, as time passes after harvest. Because locally-grown produce is freshest, it is more nutritionally complete.
Purity. Eighty percent of American adults say they are concerned about the safety of the food they eat. They worry about residues of pesticides and fungicides. These materials are not used in our production system either before or after harvest.
Enhance local economy: By purchasing produce and other items from local growers you are providing stability to your local economy through the support of local businesses.
Variety. Local farmers are not limited to the few varieties that are bred for long distance shipping, high yields, and shelf life. Often they raise and sell wonderful unusual varieties you will never find on supermarket shelves.
Soil Stewardship. Soil health is essential to grow healthful foods. Conventional farming practices are rapidly depleting topsoil fertility. Creating and sustaining soil fertility is one of our major objectives.
Environmental Protection. Soil erosion; pesticide contamination of soil, air, and water; nitrate loading of waterways and wells; and elimination of planetary biodiversity are some of the problems associated with today’s predominate farming methods. We use practices that protect soil, air, and water resources; and that promote biodiversity.
Save natural resources: Buying locally makes you an invaluable link in the process of saving resources such as fossil fuels and packaging materials. Also, we are right here in your community so the expense of transportation and delivery is kept to a minimum.
Cost. Conventional food processes don’t reflect the hidden costs of the environmental, health and social consequences of predominate production practices- of, for instance, correcting a water supply polluted by agricultural runoff, or obtaining medical treatment for pesticide induced illness suffered by farmers or consumers. When these and other hidden costs are taken into account, as they should be, locally grown foods are seen clearly for the value they are, even if they cost a few pennies more.
A Step Toward Regional Food Self Reliance. Dependency on far away food sources leaves a region vulnerable to supply disruptions, and removes any real accountability of producer to consumer. It also tends to promote larger, less diversified farms that hurt both the environment and local economies/communities. Regional food production systems, on the other hand, keep the food supply in the hands of many, providing interesting job and self- employment opportunities, and enabling people to influence how their food is grown.
Provide learning opportunities: Locally Grown supporters provide member growers the means to help educate our community about the importance of sustainable agriculture.
Supporting a way of life: The number of small farms in the United States has decreased dramatically in the last decade. Please help us preserve an honest and worthy means of making a living.
We believe that small, diverse, family-owned farms contribute to society’s overall health.
To help us with our overhead costs, we ask that you pay an annual fee of $25 per household for one calendar year. You are welcome to try us for two orders before you pay the membership. The website will automatically add the membership fee to your third order.
Unlike other co-ops, buying clubs, or CSAs where everyone gets the same box of stuff (and you don’t know what you’re getting until you get it), with Locally Grown you get to order what you want, in the quantities that you want. The weekly email lists the produce, baked goods, fresh flowers, herbs and artisan goods available that week, and you can browse the items on this website before you place your order.
Other Important Items
Each Wednesday, a list of available products is sent by email to everyone with an account. Customers must place their order for the week any time after that email goes out, but no later than Friday at 9:00 a.m. Orders are placed here on our website.
We receive the orders that same day and harvest on Monday and Tuesday.
Picking Up Orders
From 10:00 until 2:00 p.m. on Saturdays, you can pick-up your produce at Haderlie Farms, 981 North Main St. in Thayne. Our phone number is 307-883-7070. We can also deliver to the Jackson Hole Farmers Market on Saturdays from 8-11 am.
Gift certificates are available! If you would like to purchase a gift of health and flavor, please consider a Locally Grown gift certificate. You can decide the amount and the lucky recipient can purchase locally grown produce without having to pay membership fees!
