In 2010, founder Todd Griggs, decided to return to farming family land as he recognized the need for locally produced food. Originally, the land was used for several years to support a truck garden and farm stand business run by his grandparents, but much of the land was sold to develop the surrounding city of Augusta. Yet, by 2010, enough land remained to allow for the family industry to start back up. Beginning with 2,500 tomato plants on two acres of open land, Griggs was able to gain a foothold in a rising industry. However, there was room for much improvement in growing processes, crop maintenance, and plant output. By working with the local county extension agent and by attending various workshops across the country, Griggs was able to continue developing the farm and improve production processes.
Two years later, the first high tunnel (plastic-covered hoop house) was installed in order to extend the growing season and protect crops from rough Kansas conditions such as direct sun, hail, and wind. Crop output increased dramatically, and several high tunnels followed in the coming years.
Years of trial and error has shaped what Griggs Bros. Farms has become today. The farm is currently operating on 24 total acres of land and includes 16 functioning high tunnels. The success and growth of Griggs Bros. Farms has created more opportunities for their produce to be accessible to consumers. In 2018, the Griggs Bros. Farm Market opened in Augusta, Ks. This gave Griggs the ability to distribute more produce as well as partner with other local vendors to provide a variety of products. Griggs produce and products can also be found at other local shops. In 2021, the Griggs Bros. Mobile Market was introduced and travels to various locations and farmers markets around the area.
