Legacy Circle Farms

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.”

From Chris, Known & Grown’s Farmer Specialist: “Tyler and Erin have a very unique relationship with their landlord. Rather than paying rent they are
being paid to rejuvenate the land, increase biodiversity and supply food to the local community. In turn they are in the process of finding like minded “landless” farmers who wish to start a farm of their own, but need some place to get a start. They have grand plans for the near future. They plan to add fruit trees, chickens, sheep and other grazing animals to make the best use of the land. There is a large horse barn on the property whose roof would catch a lot of rain they could use to irrigate. The property already has a large population of pollinator and beneficial insect attracting plants that they plan to increase. They will be erecting two high tunnels on the property over the winter.”
