By Practical Farmers of Iowa


Onions can be a diverse storage crop that creates loyal customers. Onions can also be frustratingly weedy and susceptible to disease. Join Kate Edwards and Dan Fillius for an in-depth discussion of onion production, and hear how they produce and store onions on their farms.

  • Kate Edwards began Wild Woods Farm in 2010. On her farm near Iowa City, she raises vegetables for a 200-family CSA, delivering to Iowa City, Coralville and Solon.
  • Dan Fillius recently joined ISU Extension and Outreach as a produce safety specialist. He has been growing organic vegetables for 11 years, including stints managing the Michigan State University Student Organic Farm and 140 acres of vegetables at Featherstone Farm near Rushford, Minnesota.
