About Us
In 1910 the Furleigh Farm, founded by Richard Furleigh, started out raising hogs, cattle and growing oats and corn. It wasn't until Richard's grandson, Robert, returned home from Iowa State University in 1953 that the farm began producing the delicious strawberries that have become a North Iowa favorite. The farm, located just east of Clear Lake, currently has about 20 acres dedicated to fruit and vegetable production.

While the Furleigh's are best know for their strawberries, they grow a wide variety of other products including: green beans, cucumbers, zucchini, watermelon, cantaloupe, hot & sweet peppers, gourds, pumpkins, eggplant, tomatoes, ornamental corn, sweet corn, squash, broccoli, brussel sprouts, lettuce, cabbage, spinach, carrots, onions and more! Customers are welcomed and encouraged to pick their own produce, however the farm also offers ready pick options for all produce as well.

The farm features a large pumpkin patch, which opens at the end of September through the end of October each year. In addition to pick your own pumpkins, there are a variety of FREE, family friendly activities including a petting zoo, corn pit, bounce house and corn maze. We are excited to be participating in North Iowa Fresh and promoting the local food movement. We encourage you to bring the family and come visit our farm!
Practices
We have a passion for providing safe, wholesome, high quality food to our customers all while being good stewards of the environment. We practice LISA (low input, sustainable agriculture) so that the legacy of Furleigh Farms can live on for future generations.

We strive implement good agricultural practices on our farm and have attended a variety of food safety trainings that have aided in our development of an effective Farm Food Safety Plan in both our pre-harvest and post-harvest practices.

While most of our sales come from on-farm sales, we occasionally participate in nearby farmers markets, Thursdays on Main in Clear Lake and have begun wholesaling some of our product. We are eager to continue to grow our business and to provide safe, wholesome food to more and more diversified markets!
