Description

Whitewater Gardens is a small, diversified farm on the edge of the Whitewater Wildlife Area in Southeast Minnesota. Our mission is to create a sustainable farm that not only grows healthy, nutritious food, but also enhances the environment and contributes to a strong local community. We encourage our members to connect to the farm by coming for a farm tour or even help in the gardens. Our livestock and produce are grown using soil building and organic farming practices and are sold within 100 miles of the farm to retailers, wholesalers, CSA member families, and Farmer markets. Our produce is also distributed to economically disadvantaged families through our member-supported donations to local food shelves, resource centers, and shelters.

Your box will include in seasonal vegetables, herbs and a newsletter with farm/nutritional infomation and recipes. We also encourage our members to visit the farm and we would never refuse offers to help. We also have a restored prairie with hiking trails to enjoy.
