We care a lot about how our food tastes, so we scour the market to find the most delicious fruit and vegetable varieties to grow. Whenever we can, we grow from organic, heirloom seeds and root stock. We never use genetically modified organisms.
We are dedicated to growing fruits and vegetables in ways that don't damage the environment in which they grow or the people who consume them. Our fertilizers are always organic. We also avoid using poisons and toxins to control insects, weeds, and disease.
Farm founder Leah learned to garden from her father and originally used his old-timey methods. Over the years, we 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 the farm as we experiment, evaluate, and learn.
We 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. We hope you will appreciate the vision we have for our farm and that you will join us in making it a reality by purchasing your produce here.
Golden Prairie Farm is a small family owned farm located near Sedgwick, Ks. We grow a variety of vegetables, fruits, and flowers using organic methods, and raise pastured poultry for eggs, meat chickens, and pigs. We offer our produce and flowers through local farmers markets, restaurants, and on farm sales. We currently provide eggs and produce for The Beautiful Day Cafe and The Wine Dive.

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.
We are a non-profit youth employment program focused on giving urban youth the chance to grow food and improve their job skills. Together we tend a quarter-acre worth of land from vacant lots in South-Central Wichita and offer the produce to our CSA. Organic.
