Chef Connie Maxwell started growing food for her family in 1983 while living overseas. She wanted fresh produce for her children and wanted the convenience of walking outside to pick food for a meal. Her love of good food combined with her passion for fresh ingredients made her start her Urban Farms here in Iowa. This is her second year of farming and has partnered up with Walnut Creek CSA in Urbandale. "Growing 80 different vegetables for a 70 member CSA and providing produce for the Iowa Food Coop has not been without it's challenges," explains CHef Connie, "However, we are managing the 10 acres in Urbandale and the 200 acres in Sigourney together with help from 7 part time employees and loyal customers." Thank you for being patient this year, we will be listing more items as the summer heats up!!

Highlights this Month
Now that I have had all the lessons that come with the first year as a farmer, I have decided to consolidate onto 1 farm in Urbandale. We will be offering many different varieties of vegetables as they produce throughout the season. We have also partnered with Walnut Creek CSA for large quantity crops on their Sigourney Farm of 200 acres. Green beans, watermelon, cantaloupe, potatoes, and winter squash. Next year we hope to add garlic, asparagus,and rhubarb. Check back as our farm develops.
