A Tradition of Gleaning

Thousands of years ago, farmers would leave the edges of their field un-harvested, to provide for orphans, widows, and travelers to harvest in a process known as gleaning. On Bray Grove Farm, we specifically earmark a minimum of 10% of our highest grade crop production for donation to organizations like We Care of Grundy County, which distributes our fresh vegetables to families through food pantries.

Hunger is a widespread problem in this country; as small farmers we feel we can make a step in addressing this major issue.
