Webster Farm Organic, established in 1980, is an 80 acre farm in Benton county, Minnesota. We have 7 acres in vegetable production plus multiple greenhouses and high tunnels. The balance of the farm is woodland, meadow, creeks, and wetland. This is our 16th year of Salad Days, our CSA.
We use the least invasive and disruptive practices, rainwater collection systems, passive solar, wild buffers, and habitat preservation so that our fertility, pest and disease control are a result of natural balance. We have no farm animals. Our focus is growing vegetables, and we grow for our CSA members exclusively.
Beginning in May we will pick, pack and deliver in person your bag of produce to any of three Twin City locations, on Thursday evenings. On Fridays we meet local members at locations nearby, and at the farm for farm pickups. There is a weekly newsletter that tells you more about your food, offering ideas for simple preparation and giving news about the farm. By advance arrangement we offer a late drop site, and the option to skip a week you are away and make it up when you return. We work around allergies, and can do some customizing for foods that are favorites, and/or disliked.
We take a holistic approach to the food web and the sustainability of all partners. We commit to fun, creativity and enjoyment of the natural world, wonders we like to share. Members are invited to participate in the community life of the farm. Throughout the season we offer invitations to visit.
We are people of the Earth, deeply committed to a sustainable and just world. Our praxis is the production of healthy food in cooperation with the ecosystem. We love good food, growing it, cooking it, eating it, sharing it. Through our CSA we can provide more people with quality seasonal food, from land and farmers you know. We believe everyone should have food security: available, safe, accessible.
On Salad Days you will encounter great variety and flavors in our freshly picked produce and lots of ideas for simple preparation. We grow heirloom vegetables, hundreds of varieties, to give moderate amounts each week of many selections, awakening your senses and pleasing your palates.We are sized and priced for fresh eating more than storage. One to two adults can easily use an entire bag.
