Who We Are

 

Missoula Grain & Vegetable Co. is composed of sense of place-makers, solar energy commodity brokers, & soil life encouragement artists. But you might know us by another nomenclature – farmers.

What We Do

 

Anyone can stroll down to the supermarket or food pantry to eat.  Our mission is to go the extra acre to ensure that people are fed well.  We work like dogs so that you, your son or daughter, your spouse, your Uncle Louie and all your neighbors can eat like kings. Eating ‘right’ can be a challenge when you’re working hard, raising good kids, or studying. But it’s not as big a battle when you’re a member of a farm that delivers nutrient-dense foods into your arms each week. A lot of times, we need a tasty encouragement before undertaking preventative health care. And that’s part of the reason we do what we do, growing and transporting whole foods straight to people.

MGVC is located on 10 acres of leased land, 25 minutes from the heart of Missoula, Montana.  The backbone of our business is Community Supported Agriculture.  CSAs give individuals and families who pay a subscription fee at the beginning of the season a reliable delivery of farm products each week of the growing season.

Our Farm Products

 

Our goal is to raise livestock, grains, pulse crops, vegetables and anything else that doesn’t interfere with our values and that complements what we do and who we are.

We produce over 35 varieties of vegetables and 5+ grains for a Summer CSA Program lasting between June 8th and October 19th.  Our Winter CSA Program picks up the last week of October, and will give 20 members bi-weekly deliveries of pork, grains and lentils, onions, garlic, shallots, beets, carrots, potatoes, radishes, daikon, kale, chard, winter squash.

We loves this work because it affords us the absolute connection to lands and people.  We also like the end product of our labors.  That is, the raw foods that nourish the beautiful body of anyone — from babies to baby-boomers — who touches the stuff; foods that ignite taste buds; and that serve as green catalysts for the cultural growth that is so needed on farms and within city limits.
