Bohlen Family Farms
Florissant, MO
David Bohlen, owner of Bohlen Family Farms, has developed a reputation among high-end chefs in St. Louis and beyond as the go to grower for specialty crops from around the world. Bohlen works closely with leading plant breeders, seed collectors, and chefs to develop and select varieties adapted to his region. David is also a forager, a father, and works along side chefs in the kitchen for his private events. He is a first generation farmer who has learned from experience-starting his growth on a vacant lot across from his previous home in Ferguson, MO in 2012. While his farm has expanded, now situated on a 240 acre property in Florissant, MO, Bohlen still harvests everything by hand, just one indication of the care he puts into his craft.
