We are a small, chemical-free, direct market vegetable farm just outside of Grinnell, Iowa, selling seasonally May through December to customers in Grinnell, Newton, and the surrounding area.

Follow us on Instagram and Facebook.

We are currently switching to this new website through Local Food Marketplace. 

Please bear with us as we get everything up and running and work out any kinks!

March 2021

Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) subscriptions are open for 2021! Get fresh, chemical-free produce every week or every other week June - October. We have about 50 spots available for new and returning members. We had over 70 members from 2020 sign up early. Demand is high this year, so sign up ASAP.  

Our Annual Plant Sale will take place the first weekend of May and will open for online sales in April. Join our Email List to stay informed about when pre-sale opens. We are planning to offer both pre-sold with pick-up as well as on-site outdoor sales at the farm just north of Grinnell with COVID precautions. More info about logistics and what we'll be offering is coming soon!

Owner Jordan Scheibel, who has run Middle Way Farm for the past 8 years on his own (with lots of seasonal help) has been joined by Joe and Laurel Tuggle Lacina as new partners in the farm business in 2021! We are really excited to create a team farm together that distributes revenue, responsibilities, and decision making among the partners, creating a more sustainable farm for all.
