Acadian Family Farm is located near Fort Cobb Lake in Caddo County, Ok. The farm is owned and operated by us – Rod and Nanette Ardoin. We are passionate about growing flavorful and beautiful vegetables that are naturally-grown and chemical-free. As of March, 2013, all of our farm – 80 acres - is now officially Certified Organic with ODAFF (Oklahoma Dept. of Agriculture, Food & Forestry). We have 30 years of growing experience – 5 of which was spent selling our vegetables in Austin, Tx and having a vegetable club in Victoria, Texas. Wanting to expand, we relocated to Oklahoma in May, 2011 and are happy to be farming our beautiful sandy loam soil! In addition to selling our veggies at our farm near Fort Cobb Lake, we have Veggie Clubs in Oklahoma City, El Reno, Edmond & Lawton (see link AA Veggie Club) and sell on the Oklahoma Food Co-op. We will also be at the Weatherford Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings. We welcome inquiries and invite you to try our vegetables and taste the difference.
So what is an Acadian? “Acadians” are the descendants of the 17th century French colonists who settled in Acadia, Canada, and who later resettled in a region of Louisiana now referred to as Acadiana. They were known for their small, self-sufficient farms. That is our farm’s heritage. Rod and I are originally from southwest Louisiana and are of French descent. In keeping with this tradition, we pledge to bring you top quality, locally-grown, organic vegetables.
