Owner Liz Graznak joined a local CSA while attending grad school, and immediately know she wanted to become farmer to feed her community.
Liz established Happy Hollow Farm in 2010, nestled among the rolling hills along the Missouri River. The primary growing fields border the Little Splice Creek bottom and thus benefit from the beautiful silt loam soils that are rich in organic matter. The farm is USDA certified organic and uses a combination of highly managed cover cropping techniques, crop rotations, compost applications, hay mulch and add small quantities of minerals and nutrients.
In 2022, Liz was appointed to the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB), a federal advisory board under the USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service and makes recommendations on a variety of issues involving the production, handling, and processing of organic products.
24-Week Summer Season
Families and individuals who join Happy Hollow Farm CSA will receive a share of produce every week during the 24 week growing season (mid-May thru the end of October). A list of the veggies grown on the farm can be accessed under Share Information. Members sign a contract for the season, agree to pay in advance, agreeing to be the farm’s customer for the 24 week summer season. As a CSA member you get to help with some of the harvesting, washing, packing and distribution of the CSA boxes. Members form a partnership with their FarmHer, sharing in the risks and genuine rewards of small-scale certified organic farming.
