Weekly Organic Produce boxes delivered to your home, work, co-op meeting place or local pick up point.
We are a family run Organic and Whole Foods Co-op serving the Ozark communities of Gainesville, Tecumseh and West Plains, MO as well as Mountain Home, AR.
As a mother of five growing children the demand for food in our home, well, you can imagine… didn't meet our budget requirements. Our main goal when we started the coop with bulk dry goods in August of 2011 was to supply our own family with wholesome organics throughout the year and share this opportunity with others.
In the past we used a distribution hub to help us fill in the blanks and get things like bananas, oranges etc that do not grow locally. That hub decided it could no longer come to central Missouri so, we took off May 2014 to June 2015. We are now co-oping with other local organic farmers right in our own community to offer Farmers Market Boxes filled with local organic goodness! We offer our Organically Grown Mushrooms Year Round, as we grow them indoors. The garden produce we grow here is also utilized for the boxes, CSA (Consumer Supported Agriculture) style in Shares as well. For the winter months, when 'local' is scarce in Jan and Feb we are working with a distribution hub to fill in the gaps.
The individual shares are offered in Full Share for $50 and a Half Share for $25. Please review our Order Guide Page for all the fantastic Local offerings!
From local farmers and ranchers we also offer a variety of grass fed meat. And from local bakers... breads - both non-brominated wheat/gluten based and Gluten Free! It is simply exciting! From our humble beginnings where we were "maybe" feeding our family approximately 45% organic (basically what we grew) and supplementing with the dreaded grocery store shopping. We are now feeding our children over 95% organic and the trips to the grocery store are nearly non-existent and last a few minutes at best! (I should say at worst... who really enjoys grocery shopping?) No more label reading! No more supporting the Monsanto Regime! Organic Whole Foods! Yeah!
We would love to help your family do the same! Simply fill out our contact form and we will set you up in getting our emails.
We Look forward to meeting you!
Blessings ~ from our family to yours,
The Semyck Family

Willow Mountain Mushrooms turns 11!! ~ Est. March 3, 2004
I sent out this in an email March 2014: "I just wanted to send out a HUGE "THANK YOU!" to everyone today as Willow Mountain Mushrooms turns 10! Thank You for your continued support! We are so excited to be able to say that our farm has been Serving the Ozarks for Ten Years!!! ... such a milestone. Never could have done it without YOU!
Thank You! ~Bob, Wendy, Robert, Miranda, Jacob, James and Joseph"
I received several responses that were similar to the one below and thought I would share here so that I never forget why we do this.
"Congratulations, and a THANK YOU back at ya! It is so nice to know that I can order whatever from you, fruit, veggies, bread and KNOW that what I am putting in my family’s bodies is not detrimental to our health. It’s awesome to know that I can just order bread and not worry about what’s in it because if you are ok with providing it to your customers, I know that you have already drilled them about the ingredients and process in which it is made and it is there because it’s good for you. I really appreciate you and Bob and the effort you put into getting food to people. Congrats on your success and here’s to many years to come" A few reviews from new people we delivered to today (Feb 2012): “Thank you, Wendy. We are enjoying the produce! So nice to have the variety and freshness. I also appreciate the ordering information. I am contacting some people around here to gather interest and I plan to order again soon – either this next time or the following for sure. I’d like to do it weekly, alternating pick up with some other people nearby.” “Wow! I am so impressed at the quality of the fruits and vegetables I received today. And for the cost—phenomenal!! Wish I had heard of you all sooner! ” “So pleased with the box I received today…Please order one $30 Vegetable box for me..” and from someone that has been getting a box from us since we started the co-op the week of Thanksgiving 2011: “The produce is wonderful! It’s great having fresh organic veggies that I wouldn’t have access to otherwise. I’m eating healthier for it!”
~ That describes one of my goals… helping people eat healthier.
