Middle Way Farm, LLC, is a market garden located just north of Grinnell, Iowa, on the Lacina family farm. We employ low tech, high yield techniques to produce great tasting food for direct sale to local customers and create a system of production that is sustainable for the farmers, the community, and the environment. We rely on biological processes that are renewable, build soil, and enhance ecological health. We believe in growing better, not bigger. Our two acre size is intentionally small so that we can focus on caring for the land, product quality, serving customers, and working smarter, not harder, while enjoying a good quality of life.
Started in November 2012 by Jordan Scheibel, Middle Way Farm offers chemical-free (transitioning to certified organic in 2016) vegetables, fruits, fresh herbs, flowers, and plant starts for sale seasonally from May through December, with some storage crops available during the winter months. Our products are marketed directly to customers through Community Supported Agriculture shares, farmers markets, online buying clubs and cooperatives, restaurants, and through special events and bulk orders. We also offer public on-farm events and educational workshops throughout the year.
