WS&P was created by two brothers that have a love for the natural world. Both, Aaron and Dylan White, grew up on a small farm outside of Boxholm, Iowa. They have experienced multiple endeavors in jobs and careers, but have fallen back to agriculture. The traditional methods of farming have long been served as the "norm" to the society of both producer and consumer. WS&P understands the traditional methods, but strive to incorporate the contemporary modalities into the farm culture. By doing this, both nature and human nourishment is in conjunction to "living well."

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
We consider ourselves employees of the land. We do no more than the land can handle, only doing what it allows us to. Our goal is to continuosly improve the land and leave it better than we found it. We focus on heirloom or heritage varieties. This offers our customers a chance to try new and superior varieties. Using heirlooms are the only way one can work towards true self sustainablity. We are in the transition between contemporary and traditional farming towards a more organic method. Our goal is to build "forgiveness" into the land to increase productivity over a lifetime instead of the yearly dependence of chemical applications. This leaves the land better than what we found it.
We are using cubic footage of our land, by trellising, to maximize the production of melons. We believe that the land has an inherent value, that by being tenants, is our responsibility to discover the "Lands True Potential."
