21st Century Farm

North Star Farms represents a new generation of agriculture in North Dakota that includes high value crops such as fruits and vegetables. In addition to growing certified organic produce, this small farm is designed to protect the environment in the 21st century and enhance the use of green energy.

Renewable Fuels
E-85 and E-10 ethanol is used in vehicles and machinery in an effort to do our part to reduce dependence on foreign oil and to improve the environment.

Future Projects
We continue to strive for a total electric farm, driven by wind power. We want to be the first commercial farm in the United States to accomplish this. An environmentally friendly greenhouse that is warmed by passive solar energy became available in May 2011 and saw its first crop of seedlings in 2012.Our  next step is to include a wind generator to power the greehouse, high tunnel and some implements.

Conservation
Numerous species of trees, shrubs and flowers have been planted since North Star Farms first began in July 2004. Not only does that create a beautiful landscape and enhance the environment, it also invites wildlife and pollinators to share the neighborhood. Recycling and composting are practiced daily.
