Each month (August, September and October) you will get 1 box of RGF fruits and veggies-selected by RGF- based on what’s the most abundant. Each box will contain a $40 value of 4-5 different types of fruits and veggies. If you pay for twice a month, you will get to pick up twice a month! A google form is sent out on Sunday evening each week, giving you the list of what is likely to be in the box that week. You then fill out the form letting us know what day and time you’d like to pick up, so we can have it all ready for you! Pick up is at RGF only (not the farmers market). You pick the day- Monday-Thursday. Friday pick ups can be made upon request, but Monday- Thursday is preferred.

August: tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, potatoes, onions, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, eggplant, sweet corn, herbs (such as parsley, mint, basil), bell peppers, banana peppers, hot peppers

Farm Fresh Eggs
Red Granite Farm raises a new flock of laying hens each year. The new flock arrives in early April each year and start laying in August. For a few months of the year, there will be 800+ hens laying, which can lay 50+ dozen eggs a day! They are free range, but within a pen because they would get into our vegetable gardens and our dog might try and have chicken for lunch! They are fed a ration of corn, soybean meal and other nutrients, we have blended at the local co-op. Our farm fresh eggs are available at the Story City Locker in Story City and The Filling Station in Ames year round. When available, we’ll also have them for sale at the farm.
Duck Eggs Available
In 2021 our daughter started raising Khaki Campbell Ducks for their eggs. They are available at the farm, or the farmers market (when in season). You can also get her duck eggs at Wheatsfield Cooperative in Ames.
Beyer’s Bees Honey
The honey we sell is from a very local source, so local that some of the bees visit our farm to help pollinate our crops! To find out more about how the honey is produced click here: Beyer’s Bees
