Uproot Farm is a 30 acre vegetable farm about an hour north of the Twin Cities, between Princeton and Cambridge, MN. We offer an 18 week summer vegetable CSA as well as a 4 week fall storage share, delivered to a number of sites in the Twin Cities, Princeton, Cambridge, Blaine, and Hopkins. Additionally, we offer a Whole-Wheat flour share and we'll have a limited number of Freedom Ranger chickens available for the CSA this season. ** If you would like Uproot to deliver to your neighborhood or workplace, please contact the farm. NOTE: We need a minimum of 10 CSA shares to establish a new pick-up site.
We enter our fourth production season in 2014 after apprenticing on well-established organic vegetable CSA farms. It was on these farms where we learned not only how to grow vegetables, but how to handle veggies post-harvest to ensure maximum storage life and how to put together a well-balanced CSA box. With Uproot you know that your veggies were harvested by one of three people, and that we treat your food as we would want ours treated.
The land we farm has been in conventional production for several years so we be use cover crops and compost applications, and will be fallowing fields to rejuvenate the soil. We hope you'll join us as a participant in this season's CSA!

We took a chance on Uproot Farm in 2012 and we were so glad we did! We've participated in the Summer 2012, Fall 2012, Summer 2013 and Fall 2013. We've now signed up again for the Summer of 2014!
The vegetables were always fresh, there was a wide variety throughout both the summer share and the fall share.... [more]
We signed up for a CSA from Uproot Farm last Spring. I was a little hesitant as I had grown up on a farm in ND and was used to very fresh vegetables most of my life.... [more]

Each box was filled with a perfect amount of produce each week and our family eats a lot of vegetables in the summer. There were salad greens every week and I appreciated the cleanliness of the lettuce.... [more]
