Barnswallow's Story

In 2010, Iowa natives Kerrilyn & Meredith Nunnikhoven attended a seed starting class offered by Indian Hills Community College. At that time, Barnswallow was a distant thought, but on the horizon. Having the experience of growing and marketing sweet corn through the 80's and 90's, it was easy to entertain the thought of growing for local community once again. With generational farming knowledge combined with a passion for growing beautiful and unique specimens, the business started innocently with wholesale peonies, dahlias and tomatoes. Barnswallow was in the making to help diversify the small family farm for longterm sustainability. Today Barnswallow Flowers & Produce operates on 3 acres at the farm homestead. Currently the business serves a variety of floral designers, wholesale clients, chefs and local community members.
