Dogpatch Urban Gardens (DUG) is an urban farm located in Des Moines, Iowa.  Dogpatch Urban Gardens property is on one acre of land in a residential area, and roughly 1/4 of that acre is under cultivation.  The farm has been in operation for three seasons, and specializes in growing annual vegetable crops focusing on salad oriented products.  All crops are grown using organic methods.

The business is diversified with multiple ways for the community to support the farm.  The DUG FarmStand is a seasonal onsite locally-sourced store that sells DUG products as well as other items from growers/producers throughout the state of Iowa.  There is also an Air BnB at the farm called the "Urban FarmStay."   The Air BnB is a fully furnished, family friendly home.  DUG also sells product thorough our modified CSA (known as a Salad Subscription), to local restaurants (The Cheese Bar, HoQ, The Wine Experience, Table 128, Baru 66, Proof, Harbinger), and to the Iowa Food Coop.

Become a member of the DUG FarmStand for the 2019 Season.
