Robinette Farms is a diversified, commercial, small-scale, family farm in Martell, Nebraska, 15 minutes southwest of our capital city of Lincoln. We grow over 80 varieties of vegetables without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. In 2014 we are adding draft horse power to our farm! In addition to vegetables, we have a small herd of sheep, a flock of laying hens, a handful of hogs, and two honeybee hives.
Through our seven-month apprenticeship program, we aim to train future small-scale farmers by giving them both 'in the field' instruction as well as weekly 'classroom' discussions.
Our goal is to build a business that supports our family, reduces our negative impact on the environment, and educates our community about the food we eat and enjoy.
