About us

We’re Ethan and Carly Zierke.

We are beginning farmers who launched our farm in 2022 thanks to access opportunity (incubator) at Canoe Creek Produce.

We produce nutritious food using regenerative practices that improve the health of the land we work. We use organic manure-based fertilizers, plant cover crops, and use tons (literal tons) of compost each season. We plan to become certified organic in 2023.

You can find our produce via our CSA, at the Decorah Farmer’s Market, on the Iowa Food Hub, and on the menu at local restaurants.
