One of the largest roof-top farms in the Midwest, RISE Farms is located in the heart of downtown Wichita, Kansas. RISE Farms consists of a 15,000-square-foot urban farm and a 204-panel solar farm situated on the top floor of Fidelity Bank’s mixed-use RISE Car Park development. Here we grow a variety of produce in a no-waste manner to supply area restaurants and residents with fresh, local ingredients. Additionally, we partner with Fidelity Bank’s Office of Culture & Talent on employee engagement programs. RISE Farms is an urban extension of our sustainable farming mission. In addition to providing local produce, the green-roof farm lessens the urban heat island effect, curbs building energy costs and prevents excess storm water run-off. Coupled with the solar farm, which provides power to the parking structure and ground level retail locations, RISE is truly a beacon of environmental progress.
Our goal is to provide homegrown and farm raised products to our local community. Products from our farm and maybe some from other local farms. We believe farm to table is the freshest and best and we hope everyone will take advantage of what our local farms have to offer.

Strong Roots Healthy Farming is a small, urban farm located in Valley Center Kansas that grows vegetables, fruits, and herbs. We believe in growing food as naturally as possible, so we do not use chemicals or artificial fertilizers. Instead we focus on making the plants as healthy as possible by mixing things like compost, fish emulsion, and worm castings into the soil. We rotate our crops to create a balance of nutrients in the soil each season. These are the things that are helping us regain the nourishment in our food, so that our families and our communities can build foundations that are physically and mentally sound.
