ABOUT IOWA GROWN
IOWA GROWN MARKET...
takes a whole community of growers and supporters to succeed. Local artisans, beekeepers, farmers and gardeners all contribute to the bountiful selection at Iowa Grown Market. Supporting Iowa Grown Market means your supporting fresher, tastier and more nutritious food options. It means you are directly benefiting the local economy while also building a stronger community. Diverse gardens, in addition to less packaging and shipping, means less environmental impact from farm to table.
A GREAT LOVE FOR IOWA...
the outdoors, and fresh, natural foods were the inspirations that lead Vince Waters and Bethany Fischer to create Iowa Grown LLC in 2012. What started as only a hobby with asparagus, mushrooms and berries quickly blossomed into the vibrant business they own today. Together they proudly cultivate over 100 different fruit, vegetable, flower, herb and fungi types using sustainable and organic practices. To share their delicious bounty, Vince and Bethany opened their roadside produce stand, Iowa Grown Market, in July 2014 and began offering CSA shares to neighboring communities in 2018.
on Waters' small, family farm in Cedar County, conservation efforts have been implemented to re-establish wildlife habitat and to cultivate healthy soil. This includes the restoration of native prairie grasses and wildflowers to over 40 acres of farmland, the creation of shallow-water wetlands in the Nicholson Creek watershed, and extensive reforestation of native trees and shrubs. Between these wetlands, fields and forests is where wonderful Iowa Grown produce is created for local families.
Our mission is to grow good produce! We believe in sustainable farming using organic practices, conducting good land stewardship, creating diverse green spaces and preserving a healthy soil.
