We want to share our passion of growing delicious food with you!

Eat delicious, organic food and support three small farms at the same time! Our produce and meats are raised with natural practices in mind. We believe in less: less pesticides, less hormones, less worry.

Our CSA program revolves around a small community of growers that share in the same understanding that the best food is homegrown. With a combination of talents, we know that you will enjoy this amazing selection of farm fresh ingredients for your family’s table!

Every Week and Every season is different.

If you decide to take the leap and join the Under A Tin Roof CSA Program, you will learn the pleasure and positive outcome of eating the freshest seasonal produce, meats, and eggs. You are supporting a passion project built by small, sustainable farmers who have a love of providing food for your family and their own. You will find food that is grown and raised with sustainable, natural practices in mind.

We provide a program with a season that is 23 weeks long, divided into 2 separate seasons or purchased as a full length package. This is from June through November. Unless we fill up, new shareholders can join the program at any time and the price will be adjusted based on the date you sign up, though this may result in missing out on certain aspects of the program like seasonal veggies or meat. Our baskets come with a set inventory of food for your family and can feed a family of 4 people, or 2 people who mostly eat at home. We also offer a half share, which includes a lesser amount of vegetables that is perfect for 1 to 2 people. At this time we do not offer custom boxes.

Our entire season lasts 23 weeks, June through November. We offer pick-ups at the Under A Tin Roof Country Store (Tuesday 10AM-5PM) and the Iowa City Farmer’s Market (Wednesday 5-7PM).

Each week, you will receive a fresh basket of food from our farms. Our current share types are listed below for you to choose from. You may decide to add on certain items to your share a la carte such as pork, chicken, beef, turkey, or fresh cut flowers.

Pick-Up day is every Tuesday from 10AM - 5PM at Under A Tin Roof Farm + Country Store located at 3119 320th St, Wellman, IA 52356.

flower bouquet share 2019

Is there anything better than receiving a bouquet of fresh flowers? We can tell you what’s better - purchasing flowers that are grown locally! Did you know that more than 80% of flowers purchased in the United States are grown overseas? These blooms are grown most commonly in South America, raised with heavy use of pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides and under poor labor conditions. Flowers bought at the grocery store, if imported, are often well over a week old which means that they will only last a handful of days on your table.

Buying local flowers means that you are taking a part in a movement. By purchasing from us, you are saying no to the use of harsh chemicals, carbon emissions from long-distance shipping, low quality product, exploitative labor practices, lack of diversity in flower variety, and a floral industry that is focused more on cheap profit than quality.

This share includes a weekly large bouquet of diverse, fresh, interesting, beautiful, and long-lasting flowers. Flowers will be different every single week and throughout the entirety of the season. Enjoy specialty blooms like dahlias, snapdragons, stock, zinnias, sunflowers, bells of ireland, and more.

The 18 Week Summer Flower Bouquet CSA Share will begin June 12th and ends October 9th.
