Green Door Farms

We grow using regenerative and organic practices on 1/3 of an acre in Mehlville, MO for farmer’s markets and restaurants.”

“We met at a sustainable farming project meeting when we were both horticulture students at the University of Arkansas. We are now finishing up our third season of farming at Green Door Farms, our 1/3-ac urban micro farm where we grow organic vegetables and herbs (uncertified) for local farmers markets and restaurants.

 

“We practice no-till cultivation and believe in turning farms into fully-functiong ecosystems as much as possible. We practice regenerative, soil-building, human-scale farming and learn how to better achieve these goals with each season.

 

“We are committed to growing the tastiest, healthiest fruits and veggies possible using regenerative agricultural practices. Better for you, better for the Earth, better for us all”
