About Urban Roots

Our farm to table dinner is one of our favorite events of the year. It's a celebration of real food, which brings together the people who grow it, the people who prepare it, and the people who eat it. 

Days of prepping the farm, the food, and the fun culminate in a grand gathering. Together we enjoy food and drink the best way we know, with friends and family in the open air while the musicians play, and the fires dance. 

Join us this year on your choice of two evenings; Friday Septmber 18th or Saturday September 19th. Tickets can be purchased for $75.00 through brown paper tickets by clicking below . We'll look forward to seeing you're smiling faces.

Urban Roots Farm is a Certified Naturally Grown four season urban vegetable farm located in downtown Springfield Missouri. Owners Adam and Melissa Millsap have worked this 1.7 acre farm since 2010 growing vegetables year round using natural and sustainable teqniques. 

We believe in growing vegetables for our community as naturally as possible. We eat the veggies we grow, and our children eat the veggies we grow, so we don't ever use synthetic chemicals. We want to live in a vibrant community, and we want this earth to remain a great place to live indefinitely. We are always mindful of the impact our actions have on our community, and our environment.

Buying from local farmers supports your local economy. It keeps dollars circulating in your community, and allows people like us to make a living for our family while working a job we believe is important and which we love.

You can buy Urban Roots Produce through our CSA program which is like having a subscription to the farm, on Saturdays and Thursdays at our Farmers Market of the Ozarks stand, at Homegrown Food grocery store and by eating at restaraunts who use local produce like Gilardis.

Everytime you spend a dollar on produce from Urban Roots Farm, you are sending a message which says "I support a locally grown sustainable food system."

We are working hard for you and we truly appreciate your support.

Certified Naturally Grown is a grass roots organization with standards based on the national organic program. The diference is that CNG is peer certified, meaning that when farms participate in the program they agree to visit other participating farms to conduct inspections. We follow these standards because we believe growing food naturally is the right thing to do, and love the idea that participants hold one another accountable.
