A few weeks ago I visited Happy Hollow Farm in Jamestown with the Heart of Missouri Master Gardeners. Happy Hollow is owned by Liz Graznak, and is one of the very few certified organic vegetable farms in the area.
I love visiting vegetable farms, so I was giddy to learn about the production practices Liz uses. I was especially blown away by her no-till mulch beds, which have never EVER been tilled, but instead have had a thick layer of mulch added to them each year to create rich, loose soil. Liz also has a high tunnel to allow her to extend the growing season. She even has a winter CSA.
If you’re in the Columbia area and are thinking about a CSA, Happy Hollow still has a few spots left.
