Humble Hands Harvest is an organic vegetable business growing on 2 acres. We distribute to local restaurants, at farmers markets, and through a CSA program. Hannah Breckbill has been farming since 2009 and started Humble Hands Harvest in 2013. In 2017 the farm is adding Emily Fagan, certifying organic, and finding a long-term home on Hidden Falls Road, near Decorah, Iowa.
Humble Hands Harvest practices organic, resilient, visionary agriculture. Our vegetables grow and thrive as they were meant to – with no irrigation or synthetic chemicals. The vegetables peddled by Hannah and Emily are the ones that come from this land, raised from seeds, nurtured by rain, loved by sun, and made possible by healthy soil. We save some of our own seeds and grow almost every vegetable imaginable!
Humble Hands Harvest is the first enterprise on a piece of land that we hope to grow into a perennial polyculture commons – where wide diversity of crops on trees and bushes produce year after year (no tilling or planting necessary!), animals happily graze, and the soil is fertile and teeming with life. Hannah is committed to restorative agriculture that feeds her community, improves the soil, and connects people intimately to the food that we put in our mouths, and so to this local earth.
