Shepherd Moon Farm is located on 47 acres of gently rolling hills in the beautiful St. Croix River Valley. We are a mother/daughter team who are committed to caring for the Earth, creating a vibrant local community and developing the local economy.

We have lived on and farmed this land in a sustainable way for 30 years. In our seventh year as a CSA farm, we raise our vegetables free of chemicals using crop rotations, no-till, green manures, animal manures and mulching. Shepherd Moon Farm is determined to foster a healthy environment where people, plants and animals can thrive.

Sixty shares are available mid-May through October. A full share is about a bushel each week and feeds a family of four. Half shares are delivered every-other-week. We offer a sliding scale fee to make fresh produce available to everyone. Pick-up is Thursdays at the farm or at a drop-off site in Minneapolis. We grow a large variety of produce with 8 to 18 different vegetables and herbs available each week.

Sign-up with your deposit by March 15 and you will receive 1-2 early spring bonus shares in April! Occasional berries and fall apples are also offered. Our CSA is intentionally kept small in order to offer more personal attention to both our CSA partners and our vegetables. We have a work requirement for our members to become more familiar with the farm. Come share in the experience of planting, growing and harvesting by making regular visits to the farm!

St. Croix Valley CSA is a quiet community of small family farms near Baldwin, Wis. Urban Graze, Twin Lakes CSA and Savory Spring Farms CSA are a part of this CSA’s extended family.

Delivery is on Thursdays to 20 drop-sites throughout the Twin Cities. The farmers serve as true environmental and land stewardship mentors—sustainability, conservation, low energy, and low waste have been a part of their everyday living without interruption for generations. Farming is by wind, solar, hydro, hand and horse power. Longstanding seed-saving practices offer members many heirloom crops; ice saved from frozen winter ponds provide year-round “refrigeration.”

All produce is grown using pure, organic farming practices. Most all is certified organic. No GMO’s, no chemicals, no pesticides, no hormones, no pollution—not even the noise of machines! This very unique CSA connects members with a special farm community. Boxes include weekly farm letters and stories. There are many share choices, including affordable single season and “ala carte” options, wild crafted produce, eggs, holiday shares, pantry items, and more.

Liz Talley of Urban Graze, local home cook and recipe developer, has facilitated the CSA for six years. Each week members receive meal planning ideas, storage tips, and many creative, easy recipes using combinations of the produce varieties found in their box. A community of experienced farmers means the highest quality control, greater variety and less risk to members. The farms’ “Share CSA” program brings food to low income seniors, kids and families.

We welcome you!

If you are interested in Uproot delivering to your neighborhood or office, contact the farm.

We enter our seventh season growing for CSA after apprenticing on well-established organic vegetable CSA farms. It was on these farms where we learned how to both grow vegetables and handle veggies post-harvest to ensure maximum storage. With Uproot you know that your veggies were harvested by one of four people, and that we treat your food as we would want ours treated.

Additionally, with Uproot you’re investing in the ecological community on the farm. We’re working hard to provide long term habitat for everything from soil microbes (very important to soil health) to birds, pollinators and the occasional, less desirable, deer. We use cover crops, compost applications and fallow fields in an effort to rejuvenate the soil.

We offer both weekly (18 weeks) and every-other-week (nine weeks) shares, as well as egg shares from Sunshine Harvest Farm. Each week you will receive a newsletter with recipes, storage and handling advice, and news from the farm. Delivery is Thursday, with pick-up between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Winnowburrow’s CSA is unique in that we strive to exclusively grow heirloom produce in an effort to preserve what is left of our food biodiversity. By supporting our commitment to increasingly rare foods—and saving seed adapted to our farm’s soil and local climate — our shareholders are actively involved in protecting local food security.

Due to our unique choice to cultivate heirlooms and save seeds, our CSA may have a slightly higher cost value than the average farm to account for the extra labor involved in seed-saving. However, the superior flavor and exceptionally high nutritional content of the heirlooms we grow are well worth the extra investment. We are not yet certified organic, but practice strict chemical-free and regenerative methods which restore the health of the local ecosystem and water supply. Additionally, we make a promise to all of our shareholders to plant pollinator habitats during the growing season.

What’s in a box? Winnowburrow CSA shareholders receive 18 shares of seasonal farm goods, including (but not limited to): heirloom garden vegetables; greens; culinary herbs (fresh and dried); flowers, eggs from free-range, organically-fed chickens; and — if all goes as planned — shiitake mushrooms. Our CSA delivery services include residents of Minneapolis/St. Paul. We will also offer a “market style” CSA for on-farm pick-up in the Menomonie/Ridgeland/Colfax area of Wisconsin. All CSA shareholders are eligible to receive a 10% discount on a Thanksgiving Bounty Box and a Heritage breed turkey in November. (Deposit required). Shares begin June 8th on Thursdays.
