Lacewing Acres

Lacewing Acres is a small vegetable farm just north of Ames, Iowa, growing a wide variety of high quality, fresh vegetables for the Ames area. We primarily sell through a small CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) serving Ames with home deliveries, and the Ames Main Street Farmers Market.

The farm is named after the green lacewing, a lovely native insect that preys on the pests we all hate to find in our salad mix. Lacewing Acres is whole-heartedly committed to a way of farming that builds the health and quality of its soil, creates habitat for beneficial insects and provides opportunities for eaters and their families to learn about growing food and land stewardship first-hand. We use ecologically responsible methods, and will be certified organic by the USDA in 2015. Learn more about Lacewing's methods on our website, or email us with any questions!
