Blackbrook Farm LLC

We still have shares open for the 2014 season!!! We are a small family farm located in Clayton, WI 75 miles northeast of the Twin Cities. On our 40-acre farmstead, we grow about 10 acres of Certified Naturally Grown vegetables for CSA, farmers' markets and wholesale. As sustainable farmers, we strive to continuously improve our soil structure and increase the available nutrients in order for our produce to be as healthy and nutritious as possible. Our practices include using cover crops, green manures, crop rotation and animal manures. We never use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. For the 2014 season we are offering full and half share boxes to our CSA. Our boxes are packed full for our season starting in mid-June and running through mid-October. We grow about 55 crops that include everything from tomatoes and potatoes and fresh herbs to carrots, spinach, broccoli and sweet corn. We deliver our CSA boxes on Thursdays to the Twin Cities and the Western WI area and offer on-farm pick-up. With your box of fresh produce you will also receive a weekly newsletter with updates from the farm, pictures, recipes and the contents of the box. For more information on our farm and for weekly pictures of our boxes and newsletters from 2013 please visit our website at: www.blackbrookfarmstead.com.

I have supported their business by buying their CSA share 2 years in a row because each week I open that box, I feel spoiled: it is brimming over with the most vibrant veggies I have ever eaten! Even co-op bought organic vegetables are bland in comparison (no kidding!).... [more]
