We believe that access to healthy food is a human right. Our Pay What You Can Farm Stand offers organically grown fruits, herbs and vegetables to everyone, regardless of income. Thank you for supporting a just food system that nourishes people and the land!

Our Farm Stand is handicap accessible. We accept cash, card, EBT and senior vouchers. For more information on senior nutrition vouchers, please visit this page: https://agriculture.mo.gov/abd/fmkt/
How it works:
Retail value prices will be displayed by each item, but all produce is available on a pay what you can basis. That means whatever price you deem affordable for yourself or your family will be the price you pay. If you are in a position to pay more, to help the next customer, we greatly appreciate your contribution!
We believe that everyone deserves access to healthy food, and also that farmers deserve a living wage!

2020 brought profound changes at the farm, and a chance to serve our community in new ways. EarthDance set out to meet the challenge of quickly getting immune-boosting food into the hands of those most in need.
In March of 2020, in response to the coronavirus crisis, EarthDance debuted a Pay What You Can Drive-Thru Farm Stand, and continued offering pay what you can pricing at the EarthDance Ferguson Farmers Market booth.
The success of this project inspired us to develop a physical on-farm Farm Stand, geared especially towards serving EarthDance’s neighbors in Ferguson, Dellwood, Berkeley, Kinloch, Calverton Park, and Cool Valley.
With the support of a grant from the Missouri Department of Agriculture and the in-kind gift of design services by the architects of Tao + Lee Associates, EarthDance refurbished the farm’s tool shed into a Pay What You Can Farm Stand.
