Latest Update from the Farm

Posted January 4, 2018

Greetings from the farm!

  This is just a quick update to let everyone know that we will be providing the CSA this coming season. we are only accepting full shares, and only 30 shares for the season, so get them while they're hot! Payment is due by Jan. 15 2018, unless you have made some other arrangement with me. 

     We will also be growing for a new, fast food concept called "Dirt Burger" . This is a very exciting new project from which we will be using produce from the farm to create the menu. We will also be partnering with a few other local farms to provide the restaurant with the ingredients that it needs to be successful. 

   Dirt burger will be the "drop spot" for Des Moines customers to pick up their weekly boxes of fresh produce. the location is downtown at 4th and court avenue. Just south of pita pit, in the Randolf. 

   Please contact me with any questions about the CSA, or the restaurant

                                                        Warm reguards, 

                                                                 Tony Pille 515-724-2064
