Big River Farms is a program of Minnesota Food Association, a non-profit organization working to train immigrant and aspiring farmers. The Big River Farms CSA pools together produce grown by the farmers-in-training (on land we lease at Wilder Forest near Stillwater) to offer our members fresh, local and certified organic veggies.
We have Standard Summer Boxes (3/4 bushel box, 18 weeks, June-October), Late Season Boxes, and Donor Shares (they support the mission of MFA) available for the 2009 season. We also work with a group of local chicken farmers to offer our members fresh chicken.
We invite members out twice each season for Summerfest & Harvest Festival, and are excited to start hosting a workday once each month for members who want to get their hands dirty!
Please visit the MFA website for the full scoop! Follow the links to Big River Farms CSA under "CSA" in the navigation bar.
