Our Farm

Hickory Grove Farmstead is on five acres near Colo, Iowa. We are currently growing on approximately ½ acre including a high-tunnel greenhouse. We also have a small flock of chickens for egg production.

Besides our vegetable production, we have a small family-sized orchard of apple, pear, and plum trees and other various perennial fruits and vegetables.

Hickory Grove Farmstead is also the home to 11 (and counting) chickens; the cats – Pat, Mac, and Ted; and Barney, our guardian dog. In the future, we are considering adding more livestock.

We are primarily a no-till farm, integrated pest management farm, and use minimal chemical inputs. Our philosophy is to use organic/natural production methods when possible, and to rarely use pesticides. If you have any questions on our practices we encourage you to reach out for more information.
