Genuine Faux Farm

The Genuine Faux Farm started its Farm Share CSA in 2005. Our produce is Certified Organic by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and we are committed to sustainable farming methods. There are 120 share slots available with two size options during the regular 20 week season (June-Oct). We maintain three pickup locations (Tripoli, Waverly Farmers' Market and Hansen's Outlet in Cedar Falls). Pickup locations are 'menu style' so you are encouraged to bring your own box or bag to carry your produce home. We also offer season extensions in the Spring (7 weeks) and the Fall (7 weeks). GFF specializes in open pollinated and heirloom varieties and we believe in on farm diversity. For example, we typically grow around thirty tomato varieties. The farm also raises meat chickens, ducks and turkeys and has a small flock of laying hens.

Schedule and Location:

CSA is our primary sales outlet.

We do attend the Waverly Farmers' Market on Saturdays (8:30-11:30) for plant sales in the Spring and when we have excess produce (typically Aug-Sep). We also distribute our CSA farm shares at the Tuesday Waverly Farmers Market (3:30-6:00pm). Excess produce is often made available on our front table.

A typical year will find us with excess beyond CSA needs of certain crops such as heirloom tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers and summer squash. We also typically have excess basil, potatoes and winter squash. We prefer to wholesale within 50 miles of our farm and have a vested interested in providing fresh produce to educational facilities, retirement villages and locally owned retail establishments.

We wholesale as available. For more information contact us via email to be notified when items become available.

My family has been a member of the Genuine Faux Farm CSA for about 7 years now. We no longer can imagine buying our summer produce at the grocery store.... [more]

I've had a CSA share with the GFF for 7 years. I love the GFF! Being a CSA member has helped my family eat more vegetables and learn how to prepare vegetables I never would have bought in the store! The GFF farmers are very responsive to their customers and are happy to talk about their methods, their crops, and ideas for changes/improvements.... [more]
