Welcome to Providence Acres, your purveyors of naturally grown food & more.
At Providence Acres we want to acknowledge the providence of our Lord and Savior. All good things come from Him, and He has cared for our family lovingly throughout the years. We also want to thank Him for you, our customers, & treasure the friends we have found among you.
Although our farm is not certified organic, we invite you to come witness for yourself that we actually go beyond organic standards in many ways. No Sprays of any kind on our foods and plants and no hormones or antibiotics in our animals. We have also partnered with Whole foods in Omaha to Divert (on an annual basis) over 400,000 lbs of produce scraps and food waste from the landfill, this alone shows how we are doing what we can to stand the gap against the decline of our nation's soils.
Our Vermicomposting operation is becoming paramount to the fertility of the farm, as well as allowing us to bring life back to our soils. The worms castings are an incredibly diverse source of beneficial flora that help keep our plants safe from attack by pests and diseases, and increasing the nutritional values and brix levels simultaneously.
Since we do not rely on Toxic Sprays or Synthetic Salt Fertilizers to produce our foods, they are safe for you and your family. We uphold the safe seed pledge, to only grow non-GMO plants, and many Heirloom varieties.
We are interested only in providing healthy and nutritious foods for our customers and our growing family of twelve.

Red wigglers are employed to produce biological fertility on the farm. These are also used to produce or newest product, Peak Soil, Liquid worm castings, pictured below. Check out the Peak Soil page, with our Labrotory Analysis of the Worms work.
We are in the process of moving to our new location, 12 miles NW of Lincoln, Nebraska, or 1 1/2 miles North of Raymond, Nebraska on 17001 NW 40th st. We farm at both locations however and our Greenhouse is still located on 528 County Rd 29, Valparaiso, Ne.
We propogate and produce young nursery plants, fruit trees, berry shrubs, fruiting vines and vegetable transplants for your planting and eating pleasure.
Our vision in this facet of our farm is to provide our customers with Heirloom, disease resistant and/or superior varieties, to enable the budding gardener to produce their own delicious food.
When you consider the cost of shipping and handling and the already outrageous prices of mail-order nurseries, we believe that you will be pleased by how far your dollar will go with us.
Fruit tree specials will be available again in September. We belive it is the best time to plant containerized trees, as you usually just water them a few times, mulch and cage(for rabbits). You don't have to babysit them during the hot (and often) dry summers.
Consulting is also available. On the phone or at your site. Price per hour is $40, but varies as per your situation. Justin is a learned and skilled Horticulturist, and has killed so many plants that you wouldn't believe it. He knows what to do and what not to. Formerly managed the greenhouses for the USDA Forest Service at Bessey Nursery, Located in Halsey, NE.
