Farm Farm CSA is a chemical-free produce farm that was founded in 2011. We provide shares to over 200 members from early June to the end of December. CSA is the backbone of our farm and our members receive the best produce that we grow. With over 1/5 of an acre of greenhouses and high tunnels, we are able to grow produce extra early and extra late in the season, resulting in each delivery having a great variety of high-quality produce.

Every effort is taken to ensure that our soils are well balanced with high fertility so your food is as nutrient-dense as possible. With only 2 acres in production, we rely on intensive and human scaled production techniques. In order to maintain high quality, biologically active soils, we employ no-till practices, compost is used to meet much of the fertility needs of the farm, and we never ever use chemicals!

We have Full Shares and Half Shares available for both the summer and winter season for a total of 26 weeks of CSA. Our pick-up locations are in Minneapolis (E .Lake Dogwood Coffee Co., Seward Friendship Co-op), Minnetonka (Lakewinds Co-op), Long Lake (Harvest Moon Co-op), Delano (Lupine Brewery), Buffalo (Abundant Kitchen), and Princeton (at the farm).

Featherstone has been a certified organic (MOSA) CSA farm for 25 years. We’re located in southeastern Minnesota, between Winona and Lanesboro, and we grow our crops on 130 acres of rich farmland.

We deliver some of the only customized CSA shares in Minnesota — made just for you — to over 25 drop-sites throughout the Twin Cities, as well as in Rochester, La Crosse, and Winona. Our sites include all the Twin Cities food co-ops and metro Whole Foods Markets, as well as cafes such as Dunn Bros, Common Roots, Smith Coffee, and Birchwood. A full listing of our sites can be found at www.featherstonefarm.com.

When you join our farm, you get a chance to rank everything we grow on a scale from one (don’t like it at all) to five (love it). Each week, we’ll make the perfect box for you, never sending you any veggies you dislike and always optimizing the types of veggies you love. You’ll also get a chance to review and make swaps to your box before we pack it, ensuring that you’ll get exactly what you’d like each week.

We offer a customized Summer (18 weeks) and Winter (9 weeks) program, with delivery mid-June through March; our Summer Share offers a full and half-share option. We also offer vacation holds and makeup boxes for your busy schedule.

Our shareholders stay connected to our farm via our weekly newsletters and our social media posts. We also hold an annual CSA Strawberry Social in June (TBD this year due to COVID). Please visit www.featherstonefarm.com for details.

The park includes gardens and orchards, an educational barn, pasture-raised beef cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens, several miles of hiking trails, canoeing, and fishing.

The CSA operation involves teenaged youth from surrounding communities in growing produce for the shares. In addition to learning about sustainable agriculture, they are given leadership-training opportunities and inspiration to create positive change in their communities. Produce is also provided to the Mound Westonka food shelf and STEP in Saint Louis Park.

The season runs for 18 weeks from mid-June to mid-October. Two share types are available. Traditional CSA Shares feed 3-4 and are picked up market-style at the farm on Tuesday afternoons. Pre-paid Farm Market Credits are available at the on-farm market stand on Saturday mornings, with the flexibility to buy the amounts you need when you need them. This market is also open for the general public to purchase produce.

Eggs, meat, maple syrup, honey, and other products raised at Gale Woods are available for purchase in the farm store. For sign-up information and pricing, please contact us.
