Our farm is an island oasis located in the urban Tampa landscape. Our 280 member CSA has small fields and tropical orchards tucked in between the wooded areas of our land. Sweetwater creek runs through our farm with a small walk bridge spanning the waterway that is home to many fish, sometimes otters and occasionally a manatee. It is a wonderful place to meet a friend for lunch, have a group meeting, help on the farm or just play in the mud. Not to mention that we grow great food from September through May. Internships available. We feature a wonderful Sunday Market/Music Series open to the public.

Sweetwater is Florida's first CSA and organic community farm. We are located in a beautiful oasis where members pick up their shares from November through May at the farm on Thursdays (12-6pm) and Sundays (12-4pm). CSA Members may choose to pick-up at the St Petersburg Saturday Morning Market in downtown St Pete from 9:00-2:00.

Sundays we also feature a wonderful market with other farmers, local vendors, food and music. The Sunday Market is open to the public.
