Stone's Throw Urban Farm is redefining local, sustainable food in the Twin Cities.
We convert vacant lots in St. Paul and Minneapolis into beautiful, productive micro-farms and grow food for a CSA, the Mill City Farmers Market, and various local wholesale accounts. Stone's Throw is working hard to strengthen our local food system.
Our farm is run by a partnership of six farmers, with help from neighbors and volunteers. As an agro-ecologically minded small business rooted in community values, we strive to transform unused urban spaces into vibrant farmland. We farm on over 16 formerly vacant lots in both South Minneapolis and the Frogtown neighborhood of St. Paul. The veggies we harvest are sold through a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, at Mill City Farmers' Market, and to several local restaurants.
2013 CSA season is upon us!
