Red Granite Farm is located in Northeast Boone County in Central Iowa. Out of our love for Horticulture and farm life, our passions have become our business and we are proud to offer locally grown produce, farm fresh eggs, and perennial plants. But that’s not all. We host vintage vendors throughout the season for weekend sales and we have way more than just perennials. Seasonal annuals, succulents, shrubs for the landscape and hardy vines are all part of our plant offerings. Our next vendor weekend is Fall for Junk http://www.centraliowajunkjaunt.com/ September 30-October 2, 2016.
We are now open at the farm on Fridays from 9-6 and other times by chance or appointment. Vegetable season is in full swing and we will be attending the Ames Mainstreet Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings from 8-12:30. Watch our Facebook page for other mid-week markets we will be attending based on availability of vegetables during any given week. The sweet corn season should run from Mid-July through Mid-September this year. A very hot and dry June has made farming a challenge once again and the weather plays a huge roll in what is ready from week to week.
The plants will only be available from the farm, as there are too many vegetables that fill the truck for the markets each week. It is worth the drive though, as we have many display beds full of plants in their mature states, so you can get an idea of what to expect from the plants we sell.
