Winter squash, popcorn, beef|
Our farm has been in the family for 6 generations. We are situated along the Iowa River, and have both bottom- and up-land. We have raised cattle, row-crops, and truck crops since the land was homesteaded back in the 1800s. Our family has a long history of selling food and other products directly to the consumer. We are very pleased that the IFC has given us this opportunity to broaden our connection with those around us! Knowing who grows your food, as well as how it is grown, is an important aspect of this Cooperative. Your farmer from Glenwood Century farm is Wade Dooley.
We will offer an array of products to you as the seasons progress. We hope to see you soon!

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
Currently, all of our crops are produced conventionally, with several different tillage practices, depending on the crop and the land. As you know, every year is different, so we "roll with the punches".
All of our garden produce comes from Wade's market garden, grown in fertile, healthy soils. We have placed a priority on the continuous improvement of our growing environment. The market garden is rotated from one field to another, which helps reduce the need for many pest control practices.
Our goal is to become more sustainable, in tune with the land and our neighbor's needs. As the seasons progress, so do our product offerings.

Our home-grown, old-fashioned popcorn is different from what you can buy in the store. Wade selected two distinct hybrids, with colors and attributes to make a wonderfully colorful blend. The kernels are different colors, but when popped all are light, white, fluffy, and delicious!
This crop was fertilized the previous fall with commercial dry fertilizer at 4-20-30, had 120 units of N applied in Spring as anhydrous ammonia, and atrazine for weed control applied at planting. After planting, no chemicals were applied to the corn crop.
