Elderslie Farm began as a blackberry and veggie-growing operation and sawmill/woodworks.
Through the years we have added blackberry you-picks, outdoor cafe, series of special events, farm-to-table dinners, local fine dining, private events, cheese and wine tastings.
Most recently, we’ve added Elderslie Creamery, Everyday Elderslie, evening patio service and an online shop.

We invite you to taste the difference!
2009: Sarah Jane found herself laid off from the aircraft industry with one small child and another on the way. As a family they decided her staying home with the children added more value than a weekly paycheck. She planted a garden and canning became a part of that to fill the pantry for winter. Many times she would have a surplus and shared with friends who wanted to pay her for the goodness she was giving them in jars, so….the venture of Sarah Jane’s was born.
2017: Sarah’s husband, Shane, joined the business full time to help manage the continued growth. Shane & Sarah say working together as a team has allowed them to overcome more obstacles. Their children, Regan & Zane are also frequently seen helping at the shop in Argonia.
Sarah Jane’s creates a variety of gourmet jarred products as well as delicious take and bake meals at their shop on Main Street in Argonia. If you visit, you may peruse their selection of Kansas made products, meet the makers of Sarah Jane’s delicious goodies, and tour the facility. Visiting Tip: Ask for Zane, he gives the best tours!
Sarah Jane’s is dedicated to creating intense gourmet flavors with locally sourced ingredients. When you purchase their products you are not only supporting local growers but also a Kansas family with inspirations of fantastic food and living life without regrets. Thank you! ~ Sarah Jane, Shane, Regan & Zane

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.
