(Wrenshall,MN)YKer Acres strives to offer a wide variety of veggies throughout the growing season. We take pride in focusing on our heirloom seeds. In the past we have grown 14 different tomatoes, 8 types of winter squash, 4 varieties of beets, and an array of herbs. We offer over 60 varieties. YKer Acres offers two CSA summer share memberships. With weekly delivery starting in late June, our 16 week program ends in early October and costs $500. Our second offer is a part-time share, every other week for $300. Each week you will receive a box of wonderful local food delivered to one of three drop off sites. YKer Acres raises pastured-pork. We offer half and whole pork shares. We pride ourselves in our excellent animal husbandry. Our animals are raised in a low-stress, natural environment and treat them humanely. We do not treat our animals with hormones or with routine, low-level antibiotics. Those animals that we do treat with antibiotics are due to health problems or injury. We do not confine our animals except for to protect them from extreme weather conditions; or to prevent "pugging"of the soil during wet weather. We manage our animals' grazing to enhance the growth of the pasture, the health of the land, and the nutritional value of our products. Learning how to eat with the seasons is a great way to try new foods, as well as a great way to teach your family the value of supporting a local farm and healthy eating. OUR MISSION: To have diversity in our food practices; extend our growing season through low energy consumption methods; and promote connections between local food and the people in our community. Please contact us with any questions you may have. Also you can find us on facebook.
