Specialty heirloom produce--elephant garlic, Brussels sprouts, Romanesco broccoli, celery, wildflower bouquets, and white pumpkins.|
Clarion speaks to the kind of soil on our farm, well-drained soil on uplands that formed in the glacial till–sediments left by glaciers settled over Iowa. It also has a more sentimental meaning; Jenn’s grandfather was born and raised in the small town of Clarion, Iowa on his family’s farm. After a World War II stint in the Navy, he was supposed to return to his hometown and farm for a living, but his parents’ health failed and the farm was sold. Naming our operation after his memory is a nod to the role he played in Jenn’s life and a connection with past Iowa/farming generations. Sage is an herb we all love; it is one of the first seedlings transplanted here when we arrived in August.

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
Not certified, but practice 'organic' growing standards. Seeds are all open-pollinated; growing is done chemical-free, using only natural methods to control weeds and insects.
In our farming endeavor, we heed the sage, or wisdom, of the past by using organic, low-impact methods of farming; methods that build up the soil, rather than deplete, by using seeds that have resulted from nature’s selection rather than the ‘technology’ of modern plant breeding, mulching to conserve water usage, and making fresh food available locally, as opposed to food that travels a thousand miles.
