Randy and Rosalie Koehn, own the Koehn Berriess & Produce, formerly Rawson Berries, near West Union. They have a great deal of experience in selling locally. While living in Minnesota, they owned their own CSA and raised green house tomatoes and other produce.
In 2008 Randy and Rosalie moved to West Union with their 5 children. They grow produce without pesticides if possible, use natural fertilizers, and only pick produce when ripe to lock in the flavor. In their greenhouses and on their 11 acres, they grow peas, green beans, sweet corn, tomatoes, raspberries and cucumbers while capitalizing on their strawberry crop. They hope to increase their yield of strawberries while also increasing their production of cucumbers and tomatoes which they will offer May – October.
They are currently selling through GROWN Locally and the West Union, Decorah and Calmar Farmers Markets. With time they would also like to get involved with local schools to provide them with fresh produce as well.
The Koehn’s enjoy seeing local support for growing local produce and the efforts of the Food and Fitness Imitative and the Food and Farm Coalition.
