Other than driving to the farm, farmer's markets and CSA's are the easiest way to get all of our products.
We are at two farmer's markets on Saturdays.
Our CSA shares can be custom tailored to meet your eating habits. Need more veggies? We can add half a share. Want a specific cheese each week? Not a problem.

Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a relatively new model of farming and food distribution. A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production. CSA’s focus is usually on a system of weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables and fruit, sometimes dairy products and meat. The term CSA is mostly used in the USA , but a variety of similar production and economic sub-systems are in use worldwide.
Having fresh veggies at the beginning of May in Minnesota may seem like either an hallucination or a very expensive proposition, but on Prairie Hollow Farm it is a very energy efficient reality. Relying only on the sun’s energy and a double layer of plastic on our hoop houses, we can store enough heat in the ground to grow lots of great things before the summer really gets started. Once the weather warms up, we have several acres of vegetables and more of fruit.
You can partner with us and enjoy the benefits of our labor by purchasing a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share.
