Hick’s Produce Farm

Jason has been involved with gardening since he was a boy, helping his Mom in their family’s garden. When he and Linda married, they acquired 40 acres just south of Maryville, MO.  The family garden grew every year with Jason and Linda busy canning and freezing all of the produce until they realized they had grown too much. Starting with a home vegetable stand and finally joining the Maryville Farmer’s Market, they continued to add more produce. Four years ago, they built their first High Tunnel and have since add two more.  The production of Heirloom Tomatoes took off as they sold to local restaurants and thru Farmer’s Market. In 2018, they joined the KC Food Hub to let go of the sales and marketing and concentrate on what really makes Jason happy, growing tomatoes.
