Prairie River Farm

We are a small Market Grower in Northern Aitkin County. We use organic methods of vegetable farming, but are not certified organic we are exempt from organic certification as we are small. We have a variety of vegetables available starting in late June with gourmet lettuces and snap peas. Tomatoes, peppers, squash, Chinese vegetables, cabbage, broccoli, beans, potatoes, onions and cauliflower available starting in mid to late July, through the end of September. Most of our vegetable varieties are either Heirloom or rare varieties. We experiment with new varieties each year taking into account color, texture, taste, yields and disease resistance. We use organic seed when available and do not use genetically altered seed ever. We try our best to provide the best possible produce without harming the land or the creatures that live on it. Check us out! We will be at the Grand Rapids Farmers Market this summer on Mondays or Wednesdays and Saturdays.

We have a small pastured laying flock totally on grass when the snow is gone. Our farm fresh eggs are $3.75 per dozen medium to $5.25 per dozen Jumbo

We have pastured meat chickens available early May thru October or until sold out. The only exotic ingredients in their lives are Fresh Air, Green Grass, Sunshine, Exercise, and Respect. These are Not Organic. The feed is not organic. Organic feed is very expensive and more importantly not locally available. Our pastures have never been treated with anything but are not certified organic. Also to be organic we would have to process in an USDA Certified Organic facility and the closest one is hundreds of miles from us and does not handle orders under 1000 birds. The carbon footprint for transport is not acceptable. We could go organic but the price per pound of chicken would be at least tripled to cover the costs associated with said status.

Find us on facebook (Prairie River Farm) to see how our chickens live.
