Mustard Seed Community Farm

The Mustard Seed Community Farm is a community-based vegetable and fruit farm northwest of Ames.  Part of the Catholic Worker Movement and dedicated to providing healthy, sustainably produced food to all who need it, the farm is all volunteer and runs a CSA to pay for supplies to grow food for shelters, food pantries, community meals, and anyone else in need in Story and Boone Counties.


Guided by our faith and ethics, we are dedicated to sustainable, simple living, love of our neighbor, and creating a community in which everyone can participate in growing and eating delicious, healthy, locally produced food.

Located north of Ames, IA, we have a small CSA and also grow food for the shelters and soup kitchens in the area. In this fourth year we are growing food on about one rented acre. As we improve the shelter on the farm, we hope to become more set-up for hospitality.

Winter Potlucks:
Winter potlucks will be once a month, in Ames proper.
The time will be 6 PM dinner, 7 PM discussion
Generally these potlucks might be on the 3rd Friday of the month – but December is always confusing.

More information will come soon!
