Farm Farm is a 2-acre CSA and market garden operated by Jimmy Bauman and Heather Lewin. We have over 100 CSA members and provide produce to local farmers markets, restaurants, co-ops, and schools. Our produce is organically grown, but not USDA certified. We sell fresh from March until the end of December, offering summer and winter CSA shares for a total of 25 weeks of fresh produce, as well as two share sizes. We have pick-up locations in Delano, Buffalo, Long Lake, Minnetonka, Chanhassen, Richfield, Uptown Minneapolis and Longfellow Minneapolis. The CSA program is the bread-and-butter of our farm, and quality produce is our focus.

We love to grow a wide variety of delicious produce and we make each box as unique and balanced as possible. Our CSA program isn’t just about receiving a good value (at least 20 percent off retail prices in a normal season); it’s also about the connection we all share as people: knowing the names and faces behind the food you eat and feeling good about your purchase directly supporting farmers in the community so we can build a better future together.

You will receive plenty of in-season veggie staples you are already familiar with, as well as occasional unusual items and varieties for added excitement. Our CSA members view their kitchens as a creative space and are not afraid to try something new; loving the idea of transforming the freshest ingredients available into the most delicious meals possible.

We also offer vacation holds and makeup boxes for your busy schedule.

Shareholders stay connected to the farm and get cooking tips in a variety of ways: weekly newsletters from the farm; membership to Local Thyme (an online, chef designed CSA menu specific to each week’s box); connection through our social media outlets, including our blog and Facebook; and an invitation to attend our on-farm event, the CSA Strawberry Social (u-pick) on June 16.

Foxtail Farm offers ONLY Winter CSA Shares! We are the farm that you can go to when your Summer CSA calls it quits for the year. We are excited to grow all year long just for our Winter CSA members. Our Winter CSA share is much more than an “extra” or “storage” box. It is an entirely new idea and whole new CSA season.

Winter shares are delivered every three weeks from November to April, with a break in January.

The 1 1/9 bushel box includes:

1) Fresh spinach, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage and other cold-hardy veggies from the field for as long as possible, and then from our 6 large field tunnels. When it’s really cold we have vacuum packed, frozen veggies from the summer like sweet corn, sweet red peppers, greens, broccoli and ripe tomatoes.

2) Winter storage crops such as sweet potatoes, carrots, winter squash, potatoes, garlic, beets, onions, etc., out of our root cellars all winter long.

3) Tasty treats from our certified kitchen including soups, granola, various sweet breads, naturally fermented pickles, sauerkraut, kimchi, canned goods (like salsas and dilly beans) and lots of other tasty and healthy treats!

For over 20 years, Foxtail Farm has used only natural methods—no chemical fertilizers or pesticides—to produce really healthy, fresh, great tasting produce. We are located in the St. Croix River Valley just south of Osceola, Wis., about 50 minutes northeast of the Twin Cities. Contact us now to to be included in the New Season Notice e-mail with more details in late summer for the 2018-2019 Winter CSA season!

Small, Family Farm: We don’t skimp on customer service. Have a question? Talk directly to the farmer! We provide personalized service to all our members. You won’t compete with grocery stores for our attention—or our produce.

Support Community: We donate excess produce to Twin Cities food shelves. We hire only local Twin City residents and students. We donate shares to local nonprofit organizations and schools.

Support Other Small Family Farms: We resell organic fruit, meat and cheese from similar small family farms.

Sustainably Grown: Through the use of cover crops, rotations and organic inputs, we provide nutritious, delicious fruits, vegetables and herbs while improving the soil for future generations.

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 teenage youth from surrounding communities in growing produce for the shares.

Produce is also provided to the Mound Westonka food shelf and STEP in St 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 Flex shares 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.

The mission of the Hmong American Farmers Association (HAFA) is to advance the prosperity of Hmong farmers through cooperative endeavors, capacity building and advocacy. HAFA was started and is led by family farmers, and uses community organizing to do its work.

HAFA's work is grounded in strong communitarian values and based around a comprehensive model that acknowledges that all aspects of the agricultural and food system must be focused on at the same time to truly build intergenerational and community wealth. While some organizations offer trainings and others land access, HAFA helps Hmong farmers access all aspects of the agricultural and food system at once. Like a wheel with many spokes, all the spokes must be aligned and strong for the wheel to turn.

The HAFA Farm is a 155-acre research and incubator farm where Hmong farming families can long-term lease sizable parcels for mixed vegetable and flower production. The Farm is located just 25 minutes outside of St. Paul.

Main Street Project is offering a Chicken CSA for the first time this year to support our beginning Latino farmers raising flocks on our training farms in Northfield, Minn.

Two flocks will be raised, processed in late June and late September. A full-share is six birds from each; a half-share is six birds from the first flock. Pick up sites will be arranged in Northfield, South Minneapolis and at least one other site, depending on where shareholders cluster.

We believe that our food and agriculture system needs to regenerate the land, be just to the worker, humane to the animals, and provide healthy, local, good-tasting food to the consumer. We believe that all have a right to share in the fruits of the Earth. Your CSA share provides flock financing for beginning farmers, supports access to healthy food for all, and promotes stewardship of the land. Join us.
