Mustard Seed Community Farm

Mustard Seed Community Farm

Mustard Seed Community Farm is dedicated to sustainable, simple living, love of our neighbor, and creating a community in which everyone can participate in growing and eating delicious, healthy, locally produced food.

We are a 100% volunteer, not-for-profit, service project. Our primary focus is growing food to share, but we also have a strong education and community-building program, focusing on social justice, ecological living, human-scale economics, and farming. We have been in operation since 2008.

At Mustard Seed Farm, we believe that everyone deserves really good food. Without complete nutrition, it is hard to function at our full human potential. We believe that a great diet allows people to be more healthy, happy, and able to participate with great enthusiasm, generosity, and creativity in our community and world.

Located ~15 miles northwest of Ames, IA, we have a small CSA and also grow food for the shelters and soup kitchens in the area. We also deliver gift boxes directly to families' homes and partner with the Farm to Clinic gift food and nutrition program. If you would like to see some more details about how we have distributed food in past years, check out these informative graphs .

We are looking for a live-in volunteer to help with getting the house off the ground. Our goal is to house guests for 6 to 9 months, assisting them with comfortably reintegrating into our community in any way that we can.
