Farm Farm CSA is a chemical-free produce farm that was founded in 2011. We provide shares to over 100 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 1-1/2 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, Minnetonka, Long Lake, Delano, Buffalo, and Elk River. We have pick-up locations at Olive a Day! (305 Jackson Ave NW #B, Elk River, MN 55330) and Iron Shoe Farm (31548 136th St., Princeton, MN 55371).

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 on June 20. Please visit www.featherstonefarm.com for details.

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.

Located southeast of Menomonie, Wis., our orchard was established in 2009 with an emphasis on regenerative land use and biodiversity, and has been certified organic since 2016.

This is our 4th season offering a fruit CSA. Our fruit share is a great option for an adventurous palate, and we provide tips, recipes and fruit trivia throughout the season. We deliver to the Twin Cities on Saturdays (in southwest Minneapolis and the Selby/Dale area of Saint Paul), and in Menomonie on Tuesdays.

Choose from 2 options:
