We are a 5 generation family farm located on the south side of Wichita. Our family had orchards on the same ground from 1872 to 1987 and we started the replanting process back in 2015. We currently grow yellow and white freestone peaches along with tomatoes, peppers and pumpkins. We have monthly Vintage Markets held on the first Saturday of each month and host the South Side Food Truck Rally the same day.
Since 2009 we’ve been nurturing and growing healthy, maturing plants that are now 7, 8 and 9 years old and refining the conditions in which our plants grow and produce. 2010 marked the first year we made our berries available beyond family and a few friends. We’re now enjoying making many new “Berry Good Friends” each season and creating smiles when our customers taste our berries!
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 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.
