We make every effort to grow a wide variety of the best-quality, certified organic produce for today’s health-conscious consumer. The demand of our customers helps us decide many of the crops we will grow the following year. We also take pride in growing some of the most unusual produce items found in the state of North Dakota. This year we are growing stir fry corn for the first time.

On Oct. 2, 2018, we planted four hardneck garlic varieties. They included Georgia Fire, Siberian, Romanian Red and German Extra Hardy. Two yeares ago we had our best crop ever, harvesting 312 pounds with most of the bulbs weighing in at 4 ounces each, with a select few weighing a half pound.
