Bakers’ Acres is a certified organic and MAWQCP-certified 15-acre family farm in Avon. We serve central Minnesota from St. Cloud to Sauk Centre with weekly CSA deliveries.

Our CSA members receive ¾ bushel boxes filled with nutritious, useful, delicious and super fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs like green beans you know how to cook, plus some unusual ones to keep things interesting—all from our own farm.

Our success stems from our hardworking crew, drip irrigation, a food safety plan, two hoop houses, a wash-and-pack room in the barn, walk-in cooler, and our sincere reverence for the land. We avoid using synthetic chemicals or fertilizers, toxic pesticides and GMO seed.

Share Sizes:
We offer two CSA share sizes for 18 weeks (mid-June to mid-October) and use ¾ bushel boxes: Small (every-other-week) and Large (every week). To place an online order or for more information, visit www.bakersacresfarm.com.

Pick-up Locations:
Tuesdays in St. Cloud, Sartell, St. Joseph, Cold Spring, Albany, Melrose, Sauk Centre, and at the farm in Avon.

On-Farm Activities:
We welcome CSA members to help with harvest, visit the barnyard full of animals, and attend events like Yoga On the Farm and the CSA Family Pea Pick!

We are a small, horse-powered CSA located between Cannon Falls and Red Wing, Minn. Our shares and half-shares include a variety of seasonal produce, including vegetables, fruits and sweet corn. We rely on our team of Belgian draft horses to help us do all our field work and reduce off-farm inputs. Our work horses provide the farm with a beautiful source of power and fertility and are a critical part of our efforts to be both economically and ecologically sustainable. Shares and half-shares are available for pick-up onsite on Wednesday evenings. Any drop-off locations we offer are determined each year based on membership.

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.

Prairie Drifter Farm is a diversified, certified organic vegetable farm serving the Minnesota communities of Litchfield, Dassel, Sartell and St. Cloud through Community Supported Agriculture.

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.

Threshing Table Farm is starting its 11th season. We are located in Star Prairie, Wis., and we deliver to Hudson, Somerset, Stillwater and New Richmond, as well as have on-farm pick-up. Our list of pick-up sites is always expanding, so please check our website for the most current list, or contact us to request a new site. We make all of our deliveries on Thursdays, starting in June. 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 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 ½-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!

Please see our website for more information.
