Food is Art Food is Medicine Food is Social Justice
Firefly Farm launched a commercial growing operation in 2015 with tomatoes and a few other summer crops. Selling to just three restaurant partners, the organically grown produce made fast friends in the local Wichita food community. In the intervening years, we have added almost 20 additional restaurants partners. While heirloom tomatoes are still at the heart of our business, we now grow a variety of crops in four seasons.
Opening our farm yard to farmers' market vendors and pop-up, specialty crop sales since 2017, Firefly Farm hosts events periodically. Please subscribe to the E-newsletter or follow along on Facebook for updates. Come experience our thoughtfully curated group of vendors and learn the backstory of your local food.
A Word About How We Grow
We care a lot about how food tastes, so we scour the market to find the most delicious fruit and vegetable varieties to grow. Whenever we can, we grow from organic, heirloom seeds and root stock. We never use genetically modified organisms.
We are dedicated to growing fruits and vegetables in ways that don't damage the environment in which they are grown or the people who consume them. Our fertilizers are always organic. We avoid using poisons or toxins to control insects, weeds, and disease; when absolutely necessary, we only use OMRI-approved products.
We believe that food grown locally, seasonally, and sustainably doesn't just taste better and isn't just more health inducing but is more humane and socially just, too. We hope you will appreciate the vision we have for our farm and that you will join us in making it a reality by purchasing your produce here.
