Check out Hungry Turtle Farmers Coop for CSA vegetable shares. HTFC is a new CSA developed as a partership between experienced farmers; Blackbrook Farm is a member of the cooperative. They supply customers in the Western WI and Twin Cities region. Hungry Turtle is still accepting members—but act fast!
We are a Certified Naturally Grown vegetable farm in Clayton, Wisconsin, about 70 miles northeast of the Twin Cities. We deliver fresh produce through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), farmer's markets and wholesale to the Minneapolis/St.Paul area as well as Western Wisconsin.
From managing the soils on our farm, to thoughtfully choosing pest and weed management tactics, we seek to increase the diversity of our biological world, both above and below ground. To us, sustainable farming includes nurturing the soils rather than treating the crops. To be stronger stewards of the land and of our vegetables, we feel it is better to work toward understanding the causes than it is to treat the symptoms. In turn, when you choose our produce you are supporting rich land for future generations to come.
We value the autonomy of this work, which enables us to use our hands and our minds in the most fulfilling ways. We feel lucky to have found such a wonderful profession and hope you will want to share that with us by becoming a member, stopping by our markets or coming out to the farm to see where all those vegetables grew up!
We are happy to be part of the Emergency Food Network's Harvest for the Hungry program for a third year! Through this program, CSA farms provide fresh veggies to families in need. Harvest for the hungry is powerd by donations from CSA members and the Finnegan's fund. Consider donating today by going to www.emergencyfoodshelf.org and remember to select us as your affiliated farm. This is a fantastic program that connects families to local, chemical free vegetables while also supporting local farms.
