For decades, farms have been pushed to the fringes of our cities and metro areas. Our goal is to reverse that trend by creating pockets of unavoidable agriculture. Forget about teaching a man to fish—we believe in teaching everyone how to farm, especially the younger generation. Our experts help developers and fellow farmers draft site plans, create and build custom equipment, implement efficiency measures, and develop educational programs and partnerships with schools.
We would love to talk with you about your current projects or future dreams. Mel and Adam started, built and ran Urban Roots Farm for 9 years. While they still own Urban Roots, these days Alyssa Hughes is managing and running the farm on a daily basis. The owners have set off on a new journey with a design/build consulting firm. While still getting their hands dirty in downtown Springfield they are out seeding new farms.
