Welcome to Picket Fence Farm!

Picket Fence Farm is a small family run farm located in Marion County, Iowa. We grow healthy produce and fresh cut flowers free of any chemical pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. It's an old-fashioned mix crop farm with produce that has grandma's fresh from the garden taste.
We run a small CSA and an on-site farm stand. Our first objective is to provide adequate quantities of produce to our CSA subscribers. If there is a surplus of produce, it goes to the farm stand, where it is available to any customer, including subscribers who want extras.
This is our first year of operation, so we plan to start small and add more options in the coming years. We have plans to add fruit trees, berries, an asparagus patch, free-range eggs, possibly honey, and would love to join with another local farmer to bring our customers home grown meat free of antibiotics and hormones. Please stay tuned for what the future holds here at Picket Fence Farm!
