"Rodger Kube and Diane Hershberger, owners of Stony Crest Urban Farm, located on 7 acres in the Kansas City, MO urban core, are looking for an entrepreneurial farmer/s to lease our farm ground and high tunnels to grow herbs and vegetables. After ten years of USDA Certified Organic vegetable production for markets, restaurants and small grocery stores, we are pursuing other interests. With an acre of growing space, including 9,000 square feet of tunnels, we are known locally for the great taste of our tomatoes (grown on vertical structures), and have developed a successful four-season growing regimen without the use of heating systems."

Stony Crest Urban Farm, owned and operated by Rodger Kube and Diane Hershberger, is a USDA Certified Organic vegetable farm located in the heart of Kansas City, MO. We "grow in the hood" on our seven acre home site, as well as on urban lots around our neighborhood. We currently have 10,000 ft² of high tunnels and caterpillars tunnels. We sell a whole variety of vegetables and cut flowers, primarily at the Brookside Farmers Market, as well as to several small restaurants and grocery stores.
An Apprentice working with us will have the opportunity to learn the full gamut of market farming- from planning the crops, to planting the seeds, to marketing the products and all the stops in between. We are mostly interested in paid apprenticeship to work full-time from April 1st thru September 30th.
