Lost Branch Blueberry Farm is happy to announce the 2017 asparagus season has begun! The price this year will remain the same: $3/pound.
We will probably be making deliveries to Kirksville on Wednesdays and Fridays, 5pm-6pm, at the Lincoln Square Shopping Center. BUT we would like feedback from you as to what works best for the majority. We will change our plan if necessary. You are also welcome to come pick up your order at the farm by appointment.
If you would like to place an order, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text me at 660-342-2725. Let us know the following:
- How many pounds (min. 1 lb) you would like.
- The date you want to pick it up
- Phone number to contact you in case of a last minute change
- Please bring correct change or a check
ORDERS FILLED based upon AVAILABILITY.
We look forward with excitement as we, Lord willing, are able to provide high quality produce for you that is naturally grown using no insecticides.

These big boys are VIP’s on this farm. They are the most effective pollinators for blueberries. I saw more bumble bees this year than I ever have. Very happy about that! Here you see one pollinating a comfrey plant in the herb garden. They are pretty much done with the blueberries.
