Small Potatoes Farm is an intensively
managed, certified organic, human-scale
farm, focused on raising the highest quality,
best-tasting vegetables in central Iowa. Our
varieties are chosen with an eye toward taste
and quality.

We sell to individuals and households directly
as possible, primarily through our CSA.

Besides being certified organic by a federally
recognized certifying agency, we are always
striving for additional environmentally
sustainable practices.

We believe our success is based on
equitable relationships with those who eat
our food.

Our Mission
April 2014
Garlic is coming up well and looks
to be in good condition despite
the cold winter.
Tillie and her cousins had a great time out at Grandma and
Grandpa's farm over Easter.
Matthew is getting a jump on weeds
coming up in the asparagus and other
perennial beds and fields. A black
chicken has decided to follow him this
afternoon and take advantage of any
worms that might be uncovered.
Asparagus is starting to emerge in
spots that have been warmer. Keep
watching for updates on when we
might deliver some.
Rhubarb had a few leaf burns from the
last freezing night, but overall is doing
well.
This lettuce was planted April 2nd.
Although it is slow growing, it had a good
germination. Let's keep our fingers
crossed for good weather and few rabbits.
