Full Circle Farms
Full Circle Farms is a cluster of 4 different vegetable and flower gardens in the town of Grinnell, all tended by hand by the Hexter family — Tommy, Jon, and Carolyn. Growing vegetables and cut flowers to share with our community has been in the family since the 1940s, and we just moved to Grinnell as a family last Summer. As we get settled in and continue to dig more gardens, we will have more products available.
Our practices always involve trying to get back in touch with the closed loop cycles of the natural world. We collect compost from several area food providers and lots of neighbors and enjoy turning it regularly to make rich, nutrient-dense soil to grow the best possible produce and flowers we can. The “Full Circle” our farm name refers to involves everything from compost to flowers, growers to consumers, and ultimately, the total harmony of humans as active participants in the natural world.
