Maximizing Opportunity in a Small Town

Maximizing Opportunity in a Small Town

Steve StrasheimSunday, June 18 | 1-3 p.m.

Host: Steve Strasheim

Twisted River Farm

Address: 195 S Madison St. | Mitchell, IA 50461


Farmer Steve Strasheim has truly made the most of the opportunities and available spaces to operate Twisted River Farm in his small northern Iowa town. With greenhouses and production space on his 1 acre of land, and another 2 acres a couple of blocks away, Steve uses several production-maximizing techniques often associated with urban farms to make the most of a small footprint. At the end of the event, we will travel 7 miles to a field where Steve grows crops in a geothermal-heated hoophouse.

Light refreshments will be served following the field day.
