With our plan to be Certified Organic in 5 yrs we will be planting some vegetables as early as February, Onions; not all Onion transplants varieties that we use are available from Certified Organic produces, so we are beginning to plant Onions trans plants from seeds. Walla Walla are the first varieties that we are starting from seeds.

The Specialty Crops Management program delivers on-time, individualized instruction to direct market fruit and vegetable growers throughout Minnesota. The instruction is designed to help growers develop the technical and management skills necessary for running a business.

Many of the farms enrolled in the program are well established, but over a third of the farms have been growing fruits or vegetables commercially less than five years.
