Our history

The North Farm started in 2017 and exists thanks to the combined efforts and interests of Andrew and Reva Russell English, Ryan Koch and Christine Smith of Seedleaf and some generous friends willing to see what could be grown in the city on a couple empty acres of cleared and plantable land.

Our first growing season, we sold to local restaurants and offered 10 farm shares. Last year, we offered 25 shares and provided produce to Doodles, Sunrise Bakery, Fresh Stop Markets and the Castlewood Market. This year, we plan to offer 30 – 35 shares and will also continue selling to local restaurants and neighborhood markets.
