About Grass Fed Beef

Beef can be trimmed of unwanted fat. It is visible on the meat, allowing consumers to control exactly how much fat is removed and how much remains. Although it is leaner than grain fed beef, if your organic grass fed beef isn’t quite lean enough, it’s easy to remedy!

Your Iowa Food Forest

Your garden can supply an abundance of food – seeds, nuts, fruits and more compromise a “food forest”.   A food forest is a multi-layered composition of food-producing plants.  It is ideally low-maintenance and produces a wealth of edibles.

Want to eat more organic food? A food forest is a great way to do that.

Permaculture design identifies seven layers in a food forest, from the tallest trees in the canopy continuing down below the soil layer.

There are many varieties of plants that are routinely available in Iowa garden centers, including a few examples below.

The common wheat requires between 10 and 100 inches of rain per annum. It is Introduced to IA.

Surviving in temperatures above -28°F, the common wheat is in the Grass family. It’s scientific name is Triticum aestivum, and it has a Medium drought tolerance.

The common wheat has a Early Spring bloom period. Propogated by Seed, the fruit/seed period of the common wheat lasts from Spring to Summer.

While a plant may be listed as fruit-bearing in Iowa, you might not have the best growing conditions in your specific area.

Talking to your local garden supplier is a great way to learn more about the plants, shrubs and ground species that will be the perfect fit for your new food forest.

Are you growing an awesome food forest? Submit a picture and we may feature you on this site.
