New Producer! Star Grass Farm
Star Grass Farm, formerly known as Wilted Leaf Farm, is a small scale certified organic fruit and vegetable farm that began as a home based operation producing on just under an acre in Des Moines, IA. Eventually, we moved the farm to a larger piece of rented ground near Cambridge, IA. In the summer of 2016 we were fortunate enough to purchase a small farm in Maxwell, IA. We are very excited for this opportunity and hope to continue to weave our small farm into the fabric of Iowa's vast agricultural landscape. Star Grass's goal is to grow great organic produce as a small, diversified, ecologically and financially sustainable fruit and vegetable farm in the heart of Iowa. Find us also at the Ames Main Street Farmers Market and at the Ankeny Farmers market.
This is what we are offering on the a la carte form:
-Nest Run Farm Fresh Eggs $4.50/Dozen - Farm fresh eggs from our small flock of White Leghorn and Golden Comet birds. Our hens are fed a NON-GMO, NO SOY ration purchased from a local feed mill. Our flock is currently housed in an old converted grain bin with a large fenced run, but will move onto pasture before the end of 2018. Most cartons have an equal number of white and brown eggs of various sizes, however if you prefer all brown eggs, let us know and we will try to accommodate.
