About US


Box Turtle Farm started on a suburban lot outside of St. Louis in 2009, growing vegetables for farmers’ markets and a small CSA.  In 2011, we moved to our current location in Mount Vernon, MO, in order to expand our operation.  In 2013, we were able to certify our products USDA organic and are inspected annually to maintain this certification.  We strive to produce the best possible vegetables, usually harvesting within two days of delivery. 

In addition to growing salad mixes year-round, we also grow bunched greens and other field crops seasonally.  Our bagged greens include Spring Mix, Avant Gardener, MaMa Jean’s Greens (a signature mix only available at MaMa Jean’s), Arugula, Baby Kale, and Spinach.

We are grateful for everyone that has helped us along the way.  We hope you enjoy our products.  You can follow our great adventure on Facebook.
