Crow River

Welcome to the Crow River Chapter

Encompassing an incredibly diverse part of the state that includes the western Twin Cities metro and the rural counties to the west, Crow River offers opportunites for farmers, sustainable farming supporters and consumers to participate in a vital and active organization. We represent not only the more "traditional" farmers - dairy, grains, etc. - but also a wide range of thriving specialty and niche market farmers: CSAs, goats, sheep, poultry, herbs, garlic, restaurant and co-op produce, etc. We have an emphasis on education in sustainable practices and an impressive roster of events, including farm tours, the Annual Crow River Chapter Annual Meeting, the Minnesota Garlic Festival, and the popular "farm social" gatherings.
