Fairmount Coffee Company Community Garden is located on the southwest corner and is a raised bed. We have herbs, lettuces, and summer veggies that we utilize in our dishes in the coffeehouse whenever possible. We began in March 2018 and are brand new, but are working to create community and education by growing in our garden.
I care a lot about how our food tastes, so I scour the market to find the most delicious fruit and vegetable varieties to grow. Whenever I can, I grow from organic, heirloom seeds and root stock. I never use genetically modified organisms.
I am dedicated to growing fruits and vegetables in ways that don’t damage the environment in which they grow or the people who consume them. My fertilizers are always organic. I also avoid using poisons and toxins to control insects, weeds, and disease.
I learned to garden from my father and originally used his old-timey methods. Over the years, I have adapted from more current and popular methods, like permaculture and hugelkultur. On any given year, you will find a variety of growing methods employed on my farm as I experiment, evaluate, and learn.
I believe that food grown locally, seasonally, and sustainably doesn’t just taste better and isn’t just more health inducing but is more humane and socially just, too. I hope you will appreciate the vision I have for my farm and that you will join me in making it a reality by purchasing your produce here.
I sell retail to the general public and wholesale to the restaurant trade. Retail sales can be made through my farm office here on East 21st Street. My hours change with the seasons, so watch for updates on my FB page or web site (when it gets up and running). Please contact me directly for options on wholesale sales.
This is my second year farming in Wichita, KS. My wife and I moved here from Denver, CO to live a simpler life and raise a family. I’ve always have been passionate about growing so started grow natural food for family and friends. Before I knew it my garden had become more of a farm. I grow all sorts of vegetables and melon. Recently I have been growing gourmet mushrooms.
