Don’t miss asparagus season!

Asparagus season only lasts 8 weeks each spring

And even though that sounds like a long time, it goes by quickly.  Plus, only a day of cooler weather will slow down the growth of the asparagus so some of those 8 weeks will yield many, many pounds of asparagus and some will only yield a few pounds.  Our 250′ bed of asparagus has never been treated with anything but compost and TLC.  Stop by during store hours on Saturday (10am – 2pm) or give us a call and we’ll find a time that works.

Minka Farm Welcomes You!

Minka Farm is a small family farm started in 2007.  We farm this beautiful piece of Earth to fulfill our dreams of having enough space for our children to roam and explore, growing our own food, and raising lots of different kinds of animals!
