FAMILY OWNED SINCE 1924
Cox Farm is a family-owned and operated business that has been providing fresh produce to Wichita and surrounding areas since 1924. It’s like having your own garden without all the work.
Roy and Daisy Cox (founders) began Cox Farm as a roadside stand where they would sell their produce. Throughout the years they became well known in the community for their high quality homegrown produce. Eventually, their daughter, Helen and son-in-law, Charlie became actively involved helping them expand the farm and the first “Barn” produce store was built. Customers came from all over the Wichita and surrounding area for delicious produce and friendly customer service.
Unfortunately, in 1991 Cox Farm was destroyed by a tornado. Everything, buildings, trees and equipment was gone in a heart-beat. However, most importantly God’s protection was over the Cox Family and everyone was safe. The “Cox” determination was alive and well, and soon a makeshift store was up and running with lots of home grown produce. The “Barn” was soon rebuilt and the farm continued to grow and flourish. Eventually Helen and Charlie’s oldest son, Ron and his wife, Vickie took over the farm. The farm continued to grow and evolve as times changed. One major change was the barn got air conditioning. This not only helped preserve the freshness of the produce but also the working conditions for the employees. Customers love coming into the store and saying, “I remember when… this place didn’t have air conditioning.” Ron and Vickie worked hard making the store a great place to shop not only for fresh produce but also for jams, jellies, sauces and so much more. They also expanded the fall fun from a pumpkin patch adding a corn maze along with other fall activities. Over time they decided it was time for them to retire. The farm closed in the fall of 2017 and waited for a new owner.
In the fall of 2019, Mary, (Roy and Daisy’s great niece) and Pete decided to reopen the farm. They wanted to stay with the traditional home grown produce when in season but to also expand with locally raised beef, along with many other made in Kansas products. Today the store is open year round offering fresh produce, meats, cheeses and so much more. Lots of seasonal and gift items are always just waiting to be discovered throughout the store.
