Our vision is to bring local fruits, vegetables, and other products to local consumers through direct sales at our farm stand and farmers markets in South Central Indiana.
Christopher Farms started as a garden in the back yard of a house in Central Indiana. Vegetables harvested from the garden were enjoyed fresh or preserved for enjoyment until the next harvest.
From that simple beginning Christopher Farms was formed and now occupies a four and a half acre market farm in Freetown, Indiana. Along with fresh vegetables, fruit trees will soon produce a variety of fruits, honey and wax products from an apiary will be available, and maple syrup will be available soon.
Meet the Team
Christopher Farms was founded and is lead by Chris Gilbert. Assisting Chris are his two dogs, Half Pint and Spot.
Head Bottle Washer
Chris has managed a large family garden for many years and has moved into market farming.
First Dog in Charge
Half Pint was found wandering the mean roads of Hancock County one winter many moons ago. Her paws had gotten so cold she lost all the surface skin on them within a few days. She's lived with Chris ever since.
Half Pints main self-assigned duty is thinking she's the alpha and snoring when she sleeps.
Second Dog in Charge
Spot was rescued from the streets of the Fountain Square district in Indianapolis. Narrowly missing being struck by a car Spot was taken to a local barber shop by the local mail delivery lady. Moments later Chris showed up to get his hair cut and the rest is history.
Spots main duty is being annoyed that Half Pint things she's the alpha and waking daddy up for pee call at 0430.
