Echollective is a farming enterprise located 25 minutes from Iowa City, near Mechanicsville. We cultivate 14 acres with a wide array of vegetables and herbs, and sometimes fruit; we specialize in several heirloom hard-neck garlic varieties.
We also steward 20 forested acres including a creek and oak stands, which attract the likes of many animals: white-tailed deer, rabbits, coyotes, turkeys, pheasants, a feral black cat colony, and an amazing array of bird species, some of them quite rare.
The farm's primary farmers and workers live and work on the farm, and are open to folks coming out to help or volunteer.
We distribute our produce to New Pioneer Co-ops, Iowa City├ó┬?┬?s finest restaurants, and direct to consumers at the downtown Iowa City Farmers Market.
