Joe Fekete’s Family Farm

This family-owned and operated farm grows produce right outside of Amite, Louisiana, bringing their harvest to farmers markets in the area. After retiring from a career in education, Joe Fekete wanted to get back to his roots and reconnect with the earth. Farming allowed him to settle into his niche in life: playing in the dirt. The farm embraces the cyclical nature of the land and doesn’t try to fight mother nature. By growing seasonal produce, Joe Fekete’s Family Farm helps to restore balance in nature and in the local community. Though Fekete started at the Gretna Louisiana Farmers Market in 2005, he is a relatively new vendor at Crescent City Farmers Market. Their current selection of produce includes cushaw, pumpkin, eggplant, summer squash, and some early greens. Come check it out!
