We grow everything that you'll receive in your shares right here on the farm because we believe the major influence of a person's health is determined by the health of the soil. We use certified organic biological pest controls, crop rotation, mulch, green manure crops, certified organic fertilizer, mineral & micro-life supplements for optimum soil health. We grow nutrient packed produce that supports your health. You can taste the difference. Our farming practices support the environment & the local economy. Call us or come for a visit.
We want to be absolutely clear that we are producing food for you, our friends and clients, and for our family. Our families will be eating the same crops that we provide to you. Please visit the news section of our growing website for the latest updates on crops, deliveries, and volunteer opportunities. We welcome your questions and of course you will be welcome to visit the farm anytime to see for yourselves how things are done. Field days are not required, just another perk of being part of this community! This will be a preplanned day to get everyone together on the farm to help plant, weed, mulch, harvest, and get to know your community. Our farm is located about 45 miles north of downtown Minneapolis in Isanti County. We are growing our crops on five acres that John has owned since 1987.
Farmer John grew up on a farm in central Minnesota where his family grew almost all of their own food. He discovered organic gardening in the early 1970s and realized that he has always been an organic gardener and eagerly learned more with each passing season. Erin has been the main source of inspiration for this enterprise as she discovered her own passion for growing things and decided that she wants to be a CSA producer. She really helped her father, John see his own dormant desire to farm.
