Thank You!

We had a wonderful time!

We just wanted to reach out and give our heartfelt thanks for stopping by at our Fall events this year! Whether you took a guess on the number of eggs at Willowsford HOA’s AutumnFest or our first annual Harvest Market, we appreciated the opportunity to engage and chat with you.

The Farm relies on events like these to establish deeper connections with the members of our community. Our CSA program continues to grow and thrive as we meet more people like you. We sincerely appreciate your interest in Willowsford Farm and look forward to getting to know you better!

From your Farm Team and all of us at the Conservancy,

Eat Well, Be Well!

Meet the Farmer

Farm Manager: Andrew Dunham

Andrew founded Grinnell Heritage Farm and farmed with his wife, Melissa, on family land which was settled by his great-grandparents in 1857. Andrew became interested in pursuing a career in organic agriculture while serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Tanzania. His agricultural and wildlife habitat interests stemmed from his upbringing in northeast Iowa while planting thousands of native trees and shrubs and gardening alongside his parents.

At Grinnell Heritage Farm this led to a growing 25 acres of organic produce, establishing pollinator gardens, seeding cover crops, planting beetle banks, and growing hundreds of thousands of plants for transplant in the greenhouse. These practices have been highlighted during field days by Practical Farmers of Iowa, NRCS, the Xerces Society, and numerous educational institutions.

The Dunhams have been recognized as leaders in agriculture, including receiving an Iowa Environmental Leader award. Andrew has a degree in Animal Ecology from Iowa State University. When not farming, Andrew enjoys spending time with his three children, reading, and exploring the natural world.
