Jubilee Fruits & Vegetables, LLC began in 2010 as a small CSA out of our home. In 2015, a building for our CSA shares, a farm market and restaurant became a reality: Jubilee Market & Peacemeals. It is the spot to purchase organic and locally grown produce and tasty eats. Farm dinners, make and take cooking classes, tours and other events are scheduled.

A climate battery greenhouse, which is attached to the farm market, is in full production all year for each of the four CSA seasons. A healthy crop of winter salad greens transitions into a transplant staging area, along with early tomatoes and cucumbers.

Two moveable high tunnels can be seen from state highway 60. These large structures are moved on their tracks for the different seasonal plantings, extending our Minnesota growing season from early spring and late into the end of the year.

Natural methods of production are used while avoiding synthetic pesticides and herbicides. We work towards a resilient agricultural system, which will allow us to manage our farm in a more holistic manner while enjoying abundant yields of a greater diversity of products. Renewable resources are preferred and we are continually researching how to be better stewards of this spot of earth. We utilize solar power for energy, a wood burning furnace and climate battery for heat, and cisterns for irrigating.

Several farm share sizes and a variety of pick-up schedules are available. The majority of CSA members come to the market for their shares. See our website for more information.

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.

Pick-up locations include the farm, Litchfield Natural Food Co-op, Dassel Community Room, CentraCare Plaza in Sartell, Good Earth Food Co-op in Saint Cloud, Saint Cloud Hospital, and the Woodland Hills neighborhood in Saint Cloud.

Our farm is committed to building community through food, stewarding the land and supporting vibrant habitat and soils through our farming practices. We are committed to social justice in the food system and work with the Harvest for the Hungry program to bring over 3,000 pounds of produce each year to local food shelves.

Members of our farm can choose full- or half-CSA shares with produce delivered from June through October. Full-shares consist of a ¾ bushel box of produce every week for 18 weeks and half-shares consist of a ¾ bushel box every-other-week for 18 weeks. We raise mainly staple vegetables and herbs, but include some heirloom and unusual vegetables for diversity, fun and flavor in the kitchen. We partner with nearby farms to provide optional add-ons such as honey, dried beans, fruit and grass-fed beef, and hold several member events on the farm each year geared toward a wide range of ages and interests.

Members are welcome to visit or volunteer throughout the season to nurture the connection they seek with their farm. Each share box includes a newsletter with simple but delicious recipes that will get you excited to turn your share box into tasty meals and snacks for your family. First and foremost, we strive to provide you with fresh, clean produce that looks great and tastes delicious.

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 tours, potlucks and other farm events. Although not required, you are also welcome to volunteer with farm work as well.

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 or herbs in it.

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, raspberries, pasture-raised chicken, grass-fed beef and more!
