The Art of Food in Frogtown and Rondo

How did you get into being an organic farmer with MFA?

Describes farmer program at MN Food Assoc.
"It was through the Minnesota Food Association, they have a training program that trains people how to transition to become an organic farmer. So when I graduated from college, my husband was actually working for them -- so then we transitioned." [where do you sell the produce?] "We have about six acres of organic produce. And we have many vendors that we sell to -- some of the vendors at the downtown St. Paul farmers market, and then some local restaurant." [Darius: What kind of food do you grow?] "Everything. All seventy different kinds of vegetables you name, we have all the vegetables. So I guess ASPARAGUS is our hot thing this year -- it takes about three years to grow."
