Big River Farms is a program of Minnesota Food Association (501c3 non-profit orgnization) based at Wilder Forest in the St.Croix River Valley. At Big River Farms, we train immigrants and other aspiring farmers in Organic growing methods/certification and assist them in developing their own local markets.

As a part of the training program, we operate a CSA and pool together produce grown by Big River Farms and participants in our training program. We strive to provide the farmers in our training program with a valuable learning experience while providing our community of committed CSA members high quality, local, Organic produce!

Summary of Share Options (for more details please see our website): Summer's Best: 18 weeks of the staples like carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, onions, eggplants, lettuce, and more! Shares available for farm pickup or at 7 neighborhood dropsites throughout the Twin Cities and in Stillwater.

Fall Harvest: Three hefty boxes is packed every other week with storage crops. These shares are only available for farm pick-up.

Donor Shares are offered for folks who want to show their support of MFA's mission. Donors choose the level of support.

Members are also invited to contribute to Harvest for the Hungry, a program that works with local area farms to get food into food pantries. They match donations 100% and the money is used to purchase produce from the farmers-in-training in MFA's Ag Training Program.
