The surprise of having children with food allergies prompted us to explore organic food production 6 years ago. We both grew up on farms with extensive gardens, so returning to farming was a no-brainer. What a positive difference it has made in our family, and the families of our members. We sell a full range of vegetables and several fruits through our CSA program and 4 markets: the Brookside Farmer's Market on Saturdays, the Lee's Summit Downtown Farmers Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and indoors at City Center Square at 1100 Main, KCMO on Thursdays during lunch. We occasionally attend Bad Seed Market during the winter. This year, we will be growing from a list of approx. 400 varieties. We are certified organic, growing good food without pesticides, using sustainable soil practices including minimum-till, crop rotation, cover crops, and on-site composting. Last year we added vermicomposting and honey bees. This year we are joining forces with two neighbors who will add non-gmo free range brown eggs, and free-range, chemical free beef, pork and chicken. We are also exploring a relationship with another neighbor to add lamb.

We are always looking for new patrons who appreciate fresh, local, delicious food! Also seeking interns, groups interested in farm tours, volunteers, and other like minded folk.

Our CSA runs year round. Spring, Summer and Fall shares are combined into a 25 week traditional share, or you can participate in the Market Style for full-year benefits.
Full Share: Approximately 5-9 items per week, for 25 weeks. $25 per week, for a total of $625. You may pay the total when you sign up, or divide it. This is a traditional CSA system, where the farmer selects your produce.
Partial Share: Approximately 3-6 items per week, for 25 weeks. $18 per week, for a total of $450. This is a traditional CSA system, where the farmer selects your produce.
Our market style system acts like a debit card. Prepay and receive an 'incentive percent' for being a member. Purchase from our market tables, whatever you would like, and we will track your balance. Options include:
