Located in the rich soils of the Missouri River bottoms, L & R Farms is a third and fourth generation family owned and operated business developed for local produce production and marketing. Over the past few years, we have added 6 high tunnels to our operation, extending our growing season. We, as a culture, have been dependent on sustainable agriculture to feed our families; therefore, we are dedicated in our mission to provide a wide variety of top quality, fresh locally grown produce to meet the needs of our community. In 1999, we began selling our produce at a local farmers' market; today, we have expanded to four farmers' markets, local grocers and to some wholesale outlets.
