As a passionate cook and true foodie, I get a lot of pleasure out of putting our hard work to good use. Growing food and cooking food flow together for me, and I get a lot of joy out of helping others create healthful meals from our produce.
Former school teacher turned vegetable grower, I like tending to life and watching it flourish. Teaching and growing aren't all that different. It takes patience, persistence, and a bit of good luck.
Meet the farmers.
Currently, Mellowfields Farm cultivates almost four acres of Kansas River bottom ground on the outskirts of Lawrence, Kansas. After several years of being somewhat nomadic in our growing, hopping from neighbors' yards to leasing land from the City of Lawrence as part of its Common Ground program, we finally "graduated" to our own farm. We look forward to years of cultivating and caring for this soil and building a farm business that will last.
