Legacy Circle Farms is a biodiverse family farm that is circling back to nature to provide reliable natural clean food sources for generations to come.”

“We are a biodiverse family farm that produces vegetables, fruits, mushrooms, nuts, herbs, hosts a small nursery and select value added products. Legacy Circle Farms is working on building up poor Ozark soil through adding organic biomass in the form of compost, mulch and intensive grazing. We look forward to hosting more events and continuing to teach the community about clean food systems.”
