Ploughshare Farm is a certified organic farm located 18 miles north of Alexandria. We grow a wide variety of organic vegetables and some fruits on 160 acres of fertile soil bordering the Chippewa River. Our produce is considered to be one of the highest quality in the state. In fact, our farm was voted 2009 Farm of the year by Edible Twin Cities.

Weekly deliveries to our CSA include an array of garden staples, gourmet and specialty crops. As a family of 6 ourselves (4 young boys under the age of 13yearsold) we keep in mind what families want to eat. In order to assist families with the basics of eating "in-season" vegetables we offer weekly newsletters, telling about the goings-on at the farm and including recipes. We have cooking classes yearly, a farm festival in the fall, and all our members are welcome to visit the farm throughout the season.

The name "Ploughshare" symbolizes how our work for justice is connected with our family's passion for growing premium produce and being good stewards of the land.

Weather permitting, we deliver for an 18 to 20 week period from mid-June to mid-October . We have drop-sites at central locations in Minneapolis, Minnetonka, St. Paul, St. Cloud, Fergus Falls and Alexandria.
