Think Globally, Eat Locally - Iron Roots Urban Farm helps you get there

Iron Roots Urban Farm, a project of the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation, is a 1.7 acre working farm and training center located at 820 Canfield Road on the south side of Youngstown. Iron Roots Urban Farm grows fresh produce in urban neighborhoods, encourages business creation on vacant land, helps city residents develop successful microenterprises with the goal of creating jobs, and teaches neighbors about growing food and healthy lifestyles. You can support their activities and your health by ordering from their rotating staple of vegetables.

Ordering is simple!
  1. Call (330)480-0423 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays; from 10AM-5:30PM and ask for Danielle. 
  2. Ask what produce we have that week and for prices (or give us your E-mail address to get a price and availability list in your inbox every week).
  3. Place your order by telling us what and how much produce you want and get a total over the phone (or you can e-mail your order to dseidita@yndc.org). Orders can be placed up until Fridays at 8:30am.
  4. Pick up and pay for your produce order on Fridays from 3PM-530PM or Saturdays from 1:30PM - 4:00PM, at your convenience! Pay with Cash, Check, Ohio Direction Card/EBT, Debit, or Credit!
  5. The farm is located at 820 Canfield Rd. in Youngstown, Ohio 44511. Produce pickup will be right around the corner on Billingsgate Avenue—look for the new green Demonstration Kitchen building.
