Craig grew up farming with his grandfather and was a custom applicator/salesman and Kim was a bookkeeper.

A note from Craig and Kim:

We started selling sweet corn off a flat rack wagon in our front yard with a coffee can set out for people to leave their money in. We continued to sell sweet corn for the next couple years before we expanded our crops. We found an old steel wheeled running gear on the farm and built a frame with a roof for our market, still selling in our front yard by the honor system. We sold pumpkins and squash in the fall then added tomatoes, pepper and a multitude of other vegetables. We both continued to work off farm and plant, weed and harvest our vegetable crops after work.

We continued to increase our acreage of field crops and vegetable crops over time. In 2012 we built our current market. We moved inside from our front yard in August of 2013 and both left our off farm jobs. 2014 brought a bakery and a cash register into our market. Today we are farming approximately 400 acres of corn, soybeans and dry beans including 50 acres devoted to vegetables and have 3 greenhouses where we grow tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers with 15 or so seasonal employees. We grow sweet corn, tomatoes, melons, green beans and many other vegetables. We do not grow fruit but partner with other local farmers to supply us with, strawberries, blueberries, peaches and apples. We, also have a bakery where we make donuts, cookies and award winning pies.

We open May 1st each year and close December 24th for the season, as we also sell Christmas Trees. In 2020 we started a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program where people buy a share of the harvest and receive a weekly share July thru September.

We look forward to continued growth and enjoy providing for our community.
