Meadowlark Farm was started by my wife and I (Tom and Gina Brown) in 2010, with the help of many generous and hardworking friends. Since then we have planted about 2000 peach trees and about 1000 apple trees. We planted many varieties of both, hoping that some would always flourish in the vagaries of the Kansas prairie climate. We also raise about 2 acres of vegetables. We sell what we grow at our farm and at the Lincoln Heights Village, Derby and Old Town Farmers Markets in Wichita. We welcome visitors to the farm throughout the growing season. We offer pick-your-own peaches and apples as well as vegetables from June through October. We also have a pumpkin patch and corn maze in October. We want folks to come out to the farm for fresh and delicious fruits and vegetables and then feel free to stay for a picnic or a walk through the orchard.
We want Meadowlark Farm to:
-Grow delicious and healthy food for our customers
-Practice careful stewardship of our land and the things that live on it
-Share what we are learning about good land and crop husbandry with our customers
-Be a place of honest and creative work; enjoyable for employees and customers alike.
-Be a profitable, innovative business; responsive to customers' needs and interests.
