Grade A Gardens
Wednesday, August 1 @ 4pm


Host Farmer: Jordan Clasen, Grade A Gardens, Johnston, IA (Des Moines)

Guest Chef: Derek Eidson, Centro, Des Moines, IA


Our third visit to Grade A Gardens! This is one of the Outstanding in the Field crew’s favorite farms to visit. Farmer Jordan Clasen grows organic fruits and vegetables on five acres and markets his produce through a CSA, the Downtown Des Moines Farmers Market, and Des Moines’ best restaurants such as Centro. Chef Derek Eidson will harvest Jordan’s work to create an on-farm feast. Maybe you can take your picture with his famous garlic braids, next to his beloved towering sunflowers or in his blossoming fruit orchard.
