Awhile back I did a post about organic farms and orchards near Chicago, my old home town. Now that we are located in Missouri, it is time for a new list.
There weren’t many fully certified organic farms here in Missouri, so I have compiled this list to include farms that follow organic practices, but don’t carry the USDA certification.
Blue Heron Orchard Apples and Cider
McKaskle Family Farm Corn and Rice (Online Only)
Earth Dance Farms Fruit and Vegetables, Farm School
Produce available at Ferguson Farmers Market
Nature’s Organic Haven Elderberries (Online Only)
Not Certified Organic:
Purple Gate Farm Berries, Apples, Peaches, and Honey
Brandywine Blueberry Farm Blueberries
Shady Meadows Farm Honeybees, Honey, and Blackberries
Restoration Farm Microgreens

I don’t eat meat, so I haven’t compiled the list to include meat products. For grass-fed meat, Eat Wild has done a phenomenal job compiling a map of Missouri farms.

A word of caution, I created this list as a shortlist for my own use later, so use this list at your own discretion and do your research. Make sure you contact the farm ahead of time to ensure they are open to visitors, still in business, and still farming organically, before you visit. Things seem to change quickly in the farming world, so better safe than sorry!
If you do notice a change in a farm’s status since this list was compiled (or if you know of a great one that I haven’t included), please let me know and I will update the list.
