Hoot Owl Farm LLC is owned and operated by Bonnie and Rudy Geber. We believe in eating fresh healthy food whenever possible and bringing more local produce options to our community in the Kootenai Valley.
About the Farm
Hoot Owl Farm started out of Rudy and Bonnie's home garden in 2016. We've since been expanding our growing area at home as well as branching out to other small plots in the area. As of the 2018 growing season, we are operating on two plots of about an acre in size. Our crops are grown in a very intensive manner with multiple successions on each bed so we are able to maximize our production on a small acreage. Hoot Owl Farm sits in the Northwest corner of Montana between the towns of Libby and Eureka. We are lucky to be able to work in a very beautiful area with the Kootenai River, Lake Koocanusa, and an abundance of public lands nearby to enjoy.
Unfortunately, we are not set up to give farm tours or accept public visits a this time. Neither of our plot locations are favorable to farm visits, one being very space limited and intermingled with our private residence and the other being under construction as we build infrastructure and utilities there. Our produce is not available for sale at our plots, it's available at the Farmers Market or through our CSA.
We see a lot of value in farm tours and having a place to visit and learn about how a working farm operates. We hope be able to have an open house and/or farm tours in the near future, but in the meantime, we will do our best to bring our farm to you through our Facebook page, newsletter, and Farmers Market displays.
About the Farmers
We have gardened in the Kootenai Valley for the past 11 years and are excited to be getting into commercial production. We are both hard working and love to be outdoors. We strive to be good stewards of the land and grow nutritious food through sustainable, environmentally friendly practices.
You are what you eat, right? So it's important to us to have access to food that we are confident is healthy and nutrient-rich. The best way to guarantee the quality of your food is to know where it came from and how it was produced. We are excited about the local food movement and love to see an increase in local producers of all kinds in our corner of the world.
We eat what we grow,
and grow where we live:
· We enjoy diverse, seasonal eating
· We think everyone should have access to high-quality, nutritious AND delicious vegetables and herbs.
· We hope that local produce harvested ripe and delivered fresh will become more and more mainstream in our community.
· We value whole ecosystem health and practice sustainable growing methods such as minimal tillage, cover cropping, compost amendments, and crop rotation.
· We do not use certain products that we feel are not in line with our principles for food quality and environmental sustainability...
