          back when we had an honest-to-goodness working farm on the outskirts of the bustling metropolis of Chicago. As one of the largest specialty vegetable farms in the Midwest, we worked the land, bringing fresh produce to market. And even though weve grown out of that first urban farm, we havent forgotten what it means to be an Urban Farmer. It means working with honesty, integrity and a dedication to providing the freshest products.
