Sun Gold Farms is a small family farm located in Paton, Iowa. We grow many specialty food items, and adhere strictly to organic standards. We believe that great soil and great seed equal great success.
The farm's produce comes from 100% organic seed. We do not use any chemical or GMO seed. All pest control (weeds, insects, etc.) are managed sustainably by the use of hand and some mechanical weeding, certified organic fertilizer, maintaining soil health, and crop rotation. These practices increase beneficial insect population, nutrient density, and a much more balanced ecosystem. What this means to you - flavor and integrity.
We sell "field clean" vegetables, which means everything has been rinsed clean. We do not choose to use any of the certified organic methods of washing due to breakdown of product quality.
Produce is available May through October most years, depending on our everchanging weather patterns. We sell to restaurants, institutions, specialty markets, and farmers markets.
