Our Story

Hello and welcome to our page! I’m Myla, the owner of this beautiful business. In 2017, I married into the wonderful family that is the Browns. My husband, Shaun, and I hated the fact that our factory jobs meant we were missing out on valuable time with our children. We would head to work before the kids woke up for school, and when we got home β€”after the kidsβ€” we’d instantly start cooking supper. We would enjoy a meal as a family, make sure everyone had their homework done, and before we knew it, it was bedtime for everybody. This way of living wasn’t sustainable, and we knew it; we were exhausted and had no time for family, friends, or fun.

Brown Family Farms was created as a way for our family to live a healthy, happy life. Both Shaun and I grew up gardeners, and appreciate knowing what’s in our food and where it comes from. We did some research and confirmed that Iowa β€”with its abundance of farmersβ€” still had a gap in the market for local people who grew more than just corn and soybeans. We could see we had unused space, and β€”after making preparationsβ€” jumped at the opportunity to leave our old jobs and turn our family’s garden into a full-time farm. Our farm uses sustainable, organic agricultural practices to provide a variety of chemical-free vegetables and free-range, pasture-raised chickens.

Our hope is to expand our farm to provide a wide array of local, quality products for our family and our community. Our short-term goals include adding Maple syrup, pasture-raised pork, eggs, jams, baked goods, and knit and crochet creations to our line-up of products. Down the road, we also hope to offer items such as comb honey, smoked cheeses, and hand-spun wool yarn. Side note, if you’re interested in our chickens or pigs, message me at [email protected] so I can get an idea of how many to raise in order to meet our demand.

Welcome back to ! Today we bring you to Brown Family Farms from Woden, Iowa, a small family farm dedicated to sustainable and natural agricultural practices. Shaun, Myla, and their family provide fine baked goods, pastured chickens, and fresh produce which they sell at farmers markets in Clear Lake, Forest City, and Mason City each week.

Market is open until 6:00 pm

Thanks Brown Family Farms


If you haven't had Brown Family Farms baked goods, you are missing out. I bought a huge loaf of cinnamon raisin swirl bread at Clear Lake farmers market on Saturday and only $5.00. I sliced it into 1/2 to 3/4 inch slices for French toast. Three letters people...OMG!! The bread was heavy enough to slice really easy, but light enough when eating. The proportion of raisin to cinnamon is perfect. Add maple syrup that you can also get at Market. I will need another loaf next weekend!!
Rain or Shine! Thank you for a great Farmers Market Saturday.

We hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend! What did you buy at market this week?

Thank you to our vendors:
