Farmer Ben with wife Jodi, William, Karli & Kelsi
We are a first generation, small family owned CSA farm, established in 2012. Farmer Ben has 20 years of experience, starting out learning the ropes as a young child. We rent farmland in Big Lake, Elk River and Zimmerman.
Our education and passion for healthy sustainable crops goes into every seed we sow, crop we pick and ultimately puts the best quality, freshest produce in your hands every week. Let's help support our local community together.
SUSTAINABLE FARMING PRACTICES
We study the mineral content and nutrient balance of our soils so we can provide you with the highest quality vegetables, fruits and herbs. Soil health is important to all of us in so many ways!
We have many sustainable farming methods that support our mission to provide you with the highest nutrition, and freshest produce possible.
This was our 1st year with our CSA share from the Brown Family and we loved it!! The produce was always beautiful (and delicious), with a wide variety. I really loved how Jodi posted weekly updates ahead of time of what we could expect, so I could meal plan and grocery shop ahead of time. Plus her blog is great with more insight as to what's going on with growing at the farm and recipes for more uncommon veggies you may not know how to use! Thanks Brown Family, we highly recommend you!
My friends and I changed to Brown Family Farm for our CSA and couldn't have been happier with the choice. Throughout the summer and early fall, we've seen a very large variety of seasonal crops. In other CSA's I've had in the past, it can feel like you are getting the same things over and over, but with Brown Family Farms, the variety kept us exploring new recipes and ideas. The produce was always quite fresh/tasty, easy to get from our pickup location, and the communication was very timely. I would recommend this CSA to anyone wanting some good variety throughout the CSA season. We'll see you again next year!
We had such a great experience with Brown Family Farm! This was our first experience with a CSA and I am so happy we started. They were great to work with, extremely knowledgeable and passionate, and shared so much of what they know! It’s comforting knowing that the produce we’re eating is grown with such high standards and coming from a place so close to home!
