Douglas County Farm Family

Jeff and Jane Way

Ida Valley Farm

Jeff and Jane grew up in farming families and, with that background, they decided to start a vegetable raising business north of Garfield near Alexandria. The couple grows a variety of vegetables using sustainable methods and following organic principles. They use cover crops and organic fertilizers.

The Ways market their vegetable production through a CSA and at the Alexandria Farmers Market. They also sell their produce to a couple of local restaurants in Alexandria as well as off the farm.

Jeff and Jane are married and have 3 grown children, Ariel, Megen and Gabby, plus one granddaughter and another grandchild on the way. The Ways served as 4-H club leaders when their children were involved in 4-H. Jeff served 13 years as a Garfield first responder and is currently a supervisor on the Ida Township board.
