Welcome to JC Growers Chemical Free Produce & Spice Company
Then and Now
Our Mission: We are local growers dedicated to growing high quality, all natural, chemical free produce.
In 2006 Jenny Stotler and Carla Miller purchased Cripple Creek Farm, a five acre farm in Mechanicsburg, Ohio. The following year JC Growers was born. The brain child of Jenny Stotler, JC Growers was a way to teach her grandchildren, Journey and Alexsa how to grow and preserve healthy chemical free food. The small garden she started, soon exploded into more food than she and her family could use. The next year, JC Growers became a way to teach her grandchildren work ethics, marketing and how to handle money. Jenny and the girls began selling their abundance of chemical free produce at the Champaign County Farmers Market. All of our produce is hand planted, watered and weeded with the help of two little girls whose thirst for knowledge led to the birth of JC Growers. With our sincere appreciation, this web site is dedicated to them.
In 2014 JC Growers became JC Growers Chemical Free Produce & Spice Company. We now focus on the things that we can create with our chemical free produce. In addition to the Champaign County Farmers Market, JC Growers can now be found at the Mechanicsburg Farmers & Artisans Market, a market that did not exist back then and I am proud to say I managed for three years. JC Growers is also a proud vendor of the Virtual Market champaignohlocallygrown.net, the first on-line farmers market in Ohio. This year JC Growers took the Springfield Farmers Market by storm. Our little adventure in chemical free farming certainly has grown.
In 2016 JC Growers further defined itself by returning to it's roots and becoming, JC Growers Gourmet Garlic & Spice Company. Growing gourmet garlic has become our passion and joy. The spices that we make are nothing but pure chemical free garlic. The peppers and onions that are added to some of our spices are chemical free and grown by us as well.
