Twyla Hein - Earth Biscuit Farm Tipton, Iowa
Published on Wed, 08/13/2014 - 8:30am
Twyla Hein and Kim Cross own and operate Earth Biscuit Farm just outside of Tipton in Eastern Iowa. Twyla, who grew up on the farm they now own, left to travel the world when she was 18. After five years in the U.S. Navy, Twyla pursued a career before returning to her roots and starting her version of the farm in 2009.
On their small, efficient farm, Twyla and Kim specialize in egg production and growing vegetables, herbs, and fruit. Their produce is sold to local schools and colleges through a food co-op, as well at farmers markets. They also offer CSA shares.
As their farm has grown over the past five years, Twyla was able to leave her off-farm job to focus solely on farm operations and continue growing healthy food for their community.
