flyer.jpgNorth Star Farms is proud to be a member of the following organizations:

ND Farmers Market and Growers Association
This is the state leadership for all farmers markets and independent growers of high value crops. It has seen its membership grow dramatically in the past 10 years and has administered grants to help local markets form and grow. The association developed the "Dakota Grown, It's All Good" logo in April 2005. Each year NDFMGA holds a state convention. The 2017 convention was the fourth time local foods were featured at all meals.

North Prairie Farmers Market
Once an expanding network of farmers' markets across the northwest, North Prairie is going into its 12th year and continues as a stable organization. In August 2005 a one-day market in Kenmare was held as a gauge for future expansion. In early 2006, an independent market in Carpio, joined with other markets to form North Prairie Farmers Markets. Vendors from North Prairie Farmers' Market in downtown Minot have continued to join which has made it one of the strongest farmers' markets in North Dakota. With such a wide variety of vendors (27) North Prairie offers everything from organic beef and produce, to authentic Mexican food to pie recipes from the Deep South.

Northern Plains Sustainable Agriculture Society
A nonprofit membership organization that is committed to the development of a more sustainable society through the promotion of ecologically sound, socially just, and economically viable food systems.

Farm Breeding Club
An arm of NPSAS, this organization, made up of regional farmers, is dedicated to preserving pure seed and developing seed that is better adapted to the Northern Great Plains. The Farm Breeding Club conducts variety trials each year in conjunction with North Dakota State University. The farmers who participate are on the cutting edge of organic production in North and South Dakota and Minnesota.
