Welcome! We are a small produce operation with the aim to contribute to healthier lands and healthier people. Our farm is on the south edge of the small and pleasant town of Shell Rock, Iowa. Five miles from Waverly, and a twenty minute drive from the Cedar Falls and Waterloo area. Our love for delicious and wholesome food extends to the community through our 3 acres in production.
The heart of a quality meal comes from a diverse and nutrient dense selection of vegetables. That’s why we focus on vegetables. We also are expanding our growth in medicinal and culinary herbs. You can’t match the place and purpose for quality herbs to add flavor and depth to meals, and preventative health!
Join us in our mission to be healthier, and happier, and help our lands be healthier and happier. Sign up for our upcoming CSA season today!
