Talking Tree Urban Farm is a little farm with big dreams! Our farm sits on 3 lots and a little less than an acre in Kansas City, KS. In just the year 2020 we have made huge strides on our project. What used to be vacant abandoned lots is now planted with over 100 species of trees, berries, native plants, herbs and vegetables.
Our goal is to create an ecosystem of diverse plant life that not only feeds humans but also wildlife, beneficial insects and micro organisms in the soil. In 2021 we will be selling transplants of berries and vegetables from the farm as well as planting a wide array of unique fruits and veggies to be sold through our weekly farm share and at the KCK Farmers Market every Saturday.
Sarah and Nicolás García both came to urban farming in roundabout ways. Sarah studied horticulture at JCCC in 2006-2008 and Nicolás studied how the world was broken at KU 2004-2008. While at KU Nicolás found peace in his vegetable gardens and guerrilla growing operations and after leaving KU Nicolás organized The Guild of Guerrilla Growers and later Anti-Hero Farms Edible Landscaping. In 2013 Sarah and Nicolás acquired the land they cultivate and established Treehouse Urban Farm in Waldo neighborhood of KCMO. They raise Indian Runner ducks, bees, native plants, berries, herbs, greens, mushrooms, and a rotating variety of annuals and edible flowers.
Co-owners Laura Christensen and Katherine Kelly have many years of farming experience and in 2019 started 2 Birds Farm on 20 acres in Kansas City, KS.
At 2 Birds Farm we love growing great vegetables, eating tasty food and appreciating the wildlife, wild weather and wild challenges of farming in our area.
We sell our vegetables through a CSA that offers home and office delivery of shares and at the Brookside Farmers' Market in Kansas City, MO. We currently have about two acres of open field, three high tunnels and a greenhouse in production on the farm. We also have a small flock of happy hens that provide eggs. In April and May we use our greenhouse to produce a wide variety of vegetable bedding plants for home gardeners.
We offer more than 50 varieties of tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, greens and more. From heirlooms to hybrids to varieties suited to containers or square foot gardening, we have you covered.
The Natural Farmacy KC is a sustainable, organic-practice urban farm operated by Dhan Rai, a graduate of the New Roots for Refugees farm business training program. In addition to selling at the Overland Park Farmer's Market, the farm also offers a CSA farm share program that includes full and half-season share options, supplies wholesale accounts, and now also produces cut flowers for sale to the public. The Natural Farmacy sites are located in the KCK urban core and have been a great opportunity to connect with the community and make productive use of under utilized vacant land and bring fresh produce to our neighbors.
Farmer Dhan is excited to bring his years of agricultural experience from the field to your table!

Wild Alive is a woman owned and operated small business established in 2015 and operating out of Lawrence, KS. We partner with local area farmers in the Douglas, Johnson and Jefferson county region to preserve fruit & vegetables and utilize the immunities in the local community’s soil. Produce seconds that would otherwise be composted or thrown out are used to create nutrient rich products like sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles, miso & hot sauce. The process stays the same but the produce varies by what is seasonally available each month of the harvest. A wild fermentation process is used to create these zippy products, no vinegar or starter cultures found here, only salt & the bacteria that is naturally occurring on the produce. This process creates a probiotic rich environment that allows nutrients to become more readily available for the body’s absorption. Our mission is to share our love of the deeply ancient and cultural practice of fermentation with others. To bring a new level of nutrition, passion, and magic into people's lives. You can find us at several area farmers markets, retail grocery stores, farm stores and at some of your favorite local restaurants.

Whispering Elm Farm is a small, bio-dynamic family farm located near Paola specializing in medicinal herbs and elderberries. We use cover crops, compost and focus on a wide variety of natives and other medicinals to build the soil and attract pollinators and allow our free range ducks to pest control. To extend our seasons and allow for winter harvests, we put in a high tunnel 4 years ago where we continue to experiment with a combination of annuals and perennials.
Additionally, we keep bees and have several medicinal gardens, cut flower beds, two blackberry patches and field of American elderberries. We have been certified organic the last few years but are dropping the certification in 2021 simply because for our small farm, it isn't worth the expense and hassle.
We are still 100% committed to organic practices so nothing will change in how we operate. We offer educational tours of our medicinal gardens, cut flower gardens, elderberries, tunnel and general infrastructure and are happy to share our journey with the organic certification process, transitioning from suburban life to establishing a homestead and our experiences with raising various poultry and bees. Our elderberries, fresh and dried herbs, honey, tonics, teas and other products are high-quality and hand-crafted in small batches to preserve medicinal qualities. We also offer a variety of wellness, gardening and beekeeping classes.
