You can feed your family healthy, simple, great tasting, local food spring through fall. You will receive a basket of fresh produce once a week during the summer for 16 weeks if you choose Tuesday pick-up, and 17 weeks if you choose Saturday pick-up. Season starts on Tuesday, June 1st and we are taking July 13 off and won’t sending out shares that day. Order your share at our store and enjoy fresh healthy eating at its best!
Here are some photos taken by one of our artistic members last year of their half share box from My Minnesota Farmer. Need recipe ideas for all these goodies? Find them at recipes. This is what community is all about!
How do you get your produce?
We currently have drop sites in Minneapolis, St. Paul, St. Louis Park, Eagan, Apple Valley, Farmington/Lakeville, Burnsville, Bloomington, Chanhassen, Prior Lake/Savage, Shakopee, Jordan, New Prague, Montgomery, and Mankato. As we continue to expand and get more members in concentrated areas we will establish more drop locations.
If you would like to come to the farm to pick up produce we would love to have you here!
As an added benefit to picking up your produce we will allow you to pick any extra produce we have that week.
Some of the produce included in our baskets:
- green beans
- sweet corn
- brussel sprouts
- winter squash
- wax beans
- snap peas
- head lettuce
We grow many different varieties of produce but focus on the usual produce that people know how to use. As an added bit of fun we throw in about one or two new or unusual vegetables weekly so you can try something and possibly discover a new favorite. As an added benefit to our members we allow you to come over and pick our ‘extras’ for fresh eating or canning. In the spring, come enjoy our annual baby chick day in May. More information will be available as the date gets closer.
