Open Hands Farm is a 20-acre certified organic CSA farm located just two miles north of Northfield, Minn. We think that healthy food should not be a luxury, and that a CSA share is an inexpensive way to enjoy organic vegetables and fruit. Our shareholders come to the farm once-a-week from early June through the third week of October to pick-up their share of each week’s harvest, and can mix and match the in-season produce to meet their household’s likes and needs.

We also offer an abundant u-pick section (for shareholders only). The u-pick includes strawberries, peas, beans, herbs, cherry tomatoes and flowers, and is well-loved by people of all ages. U-pick crops are usually available on a take-what-you-can-use basis, and are a great opportunity for fresh eating, freezing, canning, and/or drying. We aim to have more than enough food available for our shareholders. The leftovers from CSA pick-ups are donated to the local food shelf in order to share this fresh, nutritious food with our friends and neighbors in need.

We believe in growing food sustainably and creating community around food, and have been happily farming here since 2006.

Real Food Hub

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/REAL-FOOD-HUB-2211955279068222

Real Food Hub is a nonprofit dedicated to helping local farms succeed by helping people eat better. Real Food offers a year-round subscription to a weekly Bounty Bag of fresh fruits and vegetables that is delivered to your door. The produce selected is based on national dietary guidelines, so each Bounty Bag is nutritionally balanced.

Real Food works with eight regional farmers who practice organic and/or sustainable farming. These farms offer a wide-ranging variety of produce. The season-extension structures also ensure more local produce over a longer period of time.

Because Real Food delivers year-round, in the non-growing season we source certified organic produce from Co-op Partners Warehouse, a wholesaler that serves dozens of food co-ops and restaurants in the Twin Cities Metro and beyond. Real Food includes recipes each week featuring one or more items from the Bounty Bag and also hosts a monthly blog containing a variety of food-related information.

Real Food Hub houses a retail store, Fabulous Finds, featuring more local products (meats, chicken, turkey, eggs, cheeses, bread, grains, produce) that can be added to your Bounty Bag.

Threshing Table Farm has been operating as a CSA farm since 2007. We are located in Star Prairie, Wis., and we deliver to Hill Murray School, Stillwater, Hudson, Osceola, Somerset, and New Richmond, as well as have on-farm pick-up. Deliveries are on Thursdays, starting in June, and our season runs for 18 weeks.

Our farm offers naturally grown produce; we only use organic methods. This, in turn, ensures that the food we grow is healthy for you, the soil and our pollinators, and that it tastes amazing! We love having visitors out to the farm and encourage our members to join us for farm events. (We will only hold these events when we can do so safely.) Farm volunteers are also welcome.

We offer full-shares (a ¾ bushel box every week for 18 weeks) and half-shares (a ¾ bushel box every-other-week for a total of nine boxes). Each box has 10-14 different types of vegetables/herbs. Each share includes a weekly newsletter with news from the farm, a list of what’s in your box and recipes to help you use it. We grow all the basic vegetables, plus a couple that might be new to you to add a little variety. We work with farmer friends to bring you the opportunity to purchase other great farm products: strawberries, pasture-raised chicken, grass-fed beef, pork and more.

Please see our website for more information.
