Mariposa Farms

Just two hours from the Co-op stands a family-owned greenhouse in Grinnell, IA that grows and packages fresh herbs by hand, year-round.

“The greenhouse has herbs growing in it 365 days a year. The summer months are the most prolific months and when our greenhouse crew is the busiest. The plants love the summer.”

Small beginnings that kept growing:

When Dave and Denise Conkling started Mariposa in 1995, production looked much different than it does today. 

“We started out on a much smaller scale. As the business grew, we continued to add on to the greenhouse and packaging area to get to the size we are today - approximately 1 acre of greenhouse area,” share the Conklings.
