Elevating Prairie Plants on a No-Till Flower Farm

July 16, 2023

2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Location: State Center, IA

This Practical Farmers of Iowa field day visits Minerva's Meadow in State Center, Iowa. Hannah Scates Kettler and her husband, Kurtis, are in their fourth growing season on the 10-acre farm. Hannah uses no-till methods and natural products to grow hundreds of cultivars of cut flowers that she sells through farmers markets, subscriptions and – new this year – U-pick. Every bouquet includes native plants.
