Thorn Crest Farm

Thorn Crest is a small, family owned, sustainable farm that provides a diverse amount of fresh produce grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, synthetic fungicides or herbicides. We are now taking member registrations for the 2014 growing season. Starting in late May/early June and running through October, members receive a weekly share of fresh picked vegetables anywhere from 18 to 22 weeks, depending on the growing conditions. Some weeks will also include fresh herbs, fruit and flowers when in season. Shares start out light but increase, averaging anywhere from 1/2 bushel to a full bushel during peak season. Members can pick up at the farm or Just Foods Co-op in Northfield or at Valley Natural Foods in Burnsville or at Spark Wellness 5603 chicago Ave, mpls. Pick your own opportunities for certain crops are included at no additional charge if the season allows. A cutting garden is available when in season to allow members to cut their own bouquet.

Gary and Maureen Vosejpka, the owners and growers at Thorn Crest Farm, have a lifetime of farming experience. Thorn Crest has been in operation for over 25 years and in addition to offering CSA shares, hosts three annual events. Thorn Crest's Fall Harvest Festival, Christmas in the Country( a tree cutting event), and Thorn Crest by Candle-lite are all open to the public and held at the farm. Farm tours are available.

We hope you will join us for the upcoming season. Growing produce is our passion! We'd love to be your farmer!
