We are a USDA certified Organic farm in the heart of Southern Illinois wine country. We grow fruits and vegetables with a focus on taste and quality using natural ingredients, spring fed irrigation, and season extension practices.

New Roots challenges our current food systems by creating urban agriculture models, teaching and empowering inner city youth through food production and cooking, and feeding and nourishing ourselves and others in the St. Louis community.

We specialize in products like wildflower honey, microgreens, herbs, edible flowers and handmade soaps. Located just a mile from downtown, we think eating can be as simple as eating clean and quality food grown right here in St. Louis.

Chris and Connie met in 2013 bringing different farming backgrounds to the relationship. In 2017 they began selling their pasture raised meats at local farmers markets. In 2019 they were able to bring their meats all year long via their new website and have now started to partner with restaurants in the St. Louis and Kansas City areas.
