Latest Update from the Farm

Posted February 12, 2017

Hello from the farm!

This upcoming season, the farm will be directly involved with a very exciting new dining concept called DIRT BURGER. We will be providing many of the fresh and healthy products necessary for it's success. This partnership will provide a great market for the farm, while providing great products for the restaurant. The "farm to fork" concept isn't a new one, but we feel that we can create a better model of this by cutting out the "middle man," to deliver an extraordinary product at an affordable price with maximum profitability.

Discover Sun Gold Farms

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.
