Urban Roots Farm is a four season urban vegetable farm located in downtown Springfield Missouri. Owners Adam and Melissa Millsap have worked this 1 acre farm since 2010 growing vegetables year round using natural and sustainable teqniques.
We grow on 3/4 of an acre during the main season and down size for winter production. Believe it or not, we have room to expand. We provide 55 families fresh veggies through our summer CSA and about 25 families veggies through our winter CSA.
We believe in growing vegetables for our community as naturally as possible. We eat the veggies we grow, and our children eat the veggies we grow, so we don't ever use synthetic chemicals. We want to live in a vibrant community, and we want this earth to remain a great place to live indefinitely, so we are always mindful of the impact our actions have on our community, and our environment.
You can find our products at local food stores and Farmers Market of the Ozarks. Our philosophy is "Know your farmer, Know your food" so, we welcome visitors, tours and classroom visits. However, we ask that if you would like to bring a group, please contact us for scheduling. Come see our farm and meet your farmers.
We participate in an apprenticeship program called CRAFT on a rotating schedule, feel free to contact us directly or you can find more information about this program at Ozarkscraft.wordpress.com
Our urban farm is in West Central Neighborhood. We are a family owned and operated business. Urban Roots Farm is a four season farm, meaning we grow, and market fresh produce every month of the year. We are able to do this despite the temperate climate of Southwest Missouri thanks to our three mobile high tunnels.

I've been extremely fortunate to enjoy both a Summer share and a Winter share with Urban Roots. Both seasons were a pleasure. The farmers and interns are super friendly and happy to talk with you about anything you might want to know about the food.... [more]
I have participated in community supported agriculture (CSA) through Urban Roots for several seasons. My friends and I are consistently flabbergasted by the great variety/quality/freshness of their food.... [more]

I am always amazed by the quality and variety of veggies. I have visited the farm several times and see improvements to the land with each visit.
It is beyond obvious that Melissa & Adam are deeply about offering top quality food to their community.
