Tangletown Gardens CSA and Farm Direct Store

EXCITING NEWS!!! OUR FARM DIRECT STORE IS NOW OPEN 24/7. ORDER ANYTIME AND SELECT YOUR PICK UP DATE AT CHECKOUT.

Welcome to our farm-fresh food store, featuring year-round Farm Direct options and our seasonal Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Shares.

We feature products from our 140 acre farm in Plato, MN, where we follow ecological principles that produce the most nutritious food possible while respecting our animals and environment. We also partner with select local vendors to round out our assortments.

Field Notes from the Farm

I wanted to answer a question that I get asked from time to time. "Why do we have several different types of packages and from multiple processors?"

The answer is two parts really.  First, finding enough processing slots has been one of our most difficult challenges and that has only gotten worse in the last year and a half.  We are thankful to have some great shops to work with and they make every effort to take as many of our animals as they can. 

Without them none of this is possible.  This is why you will often see the same product but in multiple styles of packaging.

The second reason is that each of these partners makes different products and has specialty items that we are excited to have in our offerings.  Whether it's how our bacon is brined and smoked, or a favorite sausage that someone makes, we all have our favorites and we love the quality and diversity that multiple processors give us. In the end, and regardless of the package, it is our pasture raised chicken, our heritage pork, or our grass fed beef in the package. As always, we appreciate your support of our farm (and these small processors).  Stay warm and healthy!
