We are primarily a CSA and will list "extra" fruits & vegetables here - anything that we grow in over-abundance!|
New Family Farm connects people with good food by growing vegetables and eggs for people living in central Iowa. We promote soil health that allows us to grow food that tastes good and nourishes the people who enjoy it. We do this in healthy, biologically-active soil, controlling pests and weeds through pro-active management and gentle natural materials. We are working in ways that allow us to move toward organic certification in the future if we choose to do so. New Family Farm is located two miles east of Elkhart on land that has been in the family since 1912.

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
We use manure to provide nutrients for our plants, and emphasize healthy soil. If we need to use any sprays for pest control, we only (and sparingly) use organic-approved pesticides. Please inquire if you would like specifics or to discuss growing practices.
We also have approximately 130 laying hens, which we feed a non-GMO mix in addition to vegetable scraps from our CSA. The hens also have constant access to more than 20 acres of cattle pasture.
We want to connect people with food, and by doing so increase awareness of broader ecological and social challenges in the world.
