Providing Southwest Iowa with naturally grown fresh local produce.
High Prairie Produce is the summation of the three founders coming together one evening in March of 2016 with the thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool if we started a market garden?” And just like that the gears started turning and picking up speed. Allison, Jonathan, and Beau didn’t necessarily grow up with the intention of becoming market gardeners, but as their lives progressed forward they all found themselves in a position where nature bestowed enlightenment upon each of them, giving them the experiences and the understanding as to why it’s so important to work in conjunction with nature. These three world travelers happened to come together at the same place, at the same time, with the same ideas in mind.
High Prairie Produce encompasses 2 acres of land on South Hill, the southeast edge of Red Oak, next to Indian Gully. The garden is completely fenced in; a tool shed sits nearby; city water is accessible via two hydrants; and a food forest is beginning to form.
