Rolling Prairie Farmers Alliance

Lawrence, Kansas
Family Farm

Rolling Prairie is a cooperative fruit and vegetable subscription service. We are a coop of six growers. The majority of our produce has been certified organic. Several of us, however, have voluntarily surrendered our certification and, instead, have chosen to post our growing practices on our website. This allows our customers to view in detail our sustainable practices. We will occasionally offer our customers quality conventional produce grown by a neighbor (ex. IPM apples). This helps to give our customers value and variety. It also helps sustain the regional food system

As a coop, we grow in four counties in Eastern Kansas. This has several advantages for ourselves and our customers. We and our farms all have special strengths that allow us to provide our customers with a wide range of produce from arugula to mushrooms to zucchini. Our geographical spread insures that local weather events do not interrupt our production and delivery of produce. We are also able to deliver our produce to four different pick up sites: two in Lawrence and two in Kansas City.

As a volunteer for this CSA, I have always been impressed with the variety of vegetables offered each week. Since the alliance pulls from several different farms, the best of each farm is available to the customers and also ensures that if one farm is having a slow period there are others to fill in the gaps and provide a bountiful bag each week....
