Who we are:
Jones Produce is small farm dedicated to quality food and ecologically beneficial agriculture. We are proud to offer a variety of fine fruits and vegetables, grown here in Crete, Nebraska.
Jones Produce is owned and operated by Justin G. Jones. Justin’s great-great-great grandfather homesteaded in the area, and founded the original limestone quarries at nearby Roca, Nebraska. The family eventually moved west, but after growing up in rural New Mexico, and living in California where he developed his horticultural skills, Justin returned to his family’s Nebraska roots.
How we grow:
We build soil and manage our crops with organic and ecological methods. Cover crops, compost, and crop rotations are the keys to making it all work. No synthetic pesticides or fertilizers are used on the farm.
The farm is a diverse horticultural ecosystem, with cultivated fields and pasture areas interwoven with small ponds and fruit and nut tree plantings. The hilly glacial landscape dictates a careful placement of fields, windbreaks, and berms to conserve rain water and prevent erosion. We strive to encourage biodiversity on the farm, with an eye toward stability, beauty, and natural pest control.

What’s new for 2016:
This year, we’re significantly expanding production of potatoes and asparagus. Some new crops to look for: okra, baby beets, salad turnips, and baby sweet peppers. We will, as always, offer the best-tasting cantaloupe around. Finally, we’re adding a flock of laying hens, and we’ll have eggs for sale starting this summer.
