The LOON ORGANICS mission is TO NOURISH MIND, BODY, AND SOIL. Loon is a 40-acre certified organic farm located 60 minutes west of Minneapolis, MN, co-owned and operated by Laura Frerichs and Adam Cullip and their 4-year old son, Eli. Laura and Adam have been successfully farming for the past 12 years, with beginnings at the Gardens of Eagan Incubator Farm in 2005, purchasing farm land in 2008, and establishing a passionate and devoted 200-member CSA over the past ten years. Loon has around 7-8 acres in certified organic vegetable production, providing for the CSA, local retailers, farm-to-table restaurants, and the Mill City Farmers Market in Minneapolis. A dedicated staff of 5-6 returning and seasonal employees and a handful of workshares, help Laura & Adam keep the farm humming and beautiful, while learning organic vegetable production techniques in the process. Five former apprentices have now gone on to start up and run their own successful farming businesses. In addition to producing the highest quality vegetables around, Laura and Adam have become sought after experts along the way. Laura is a well-known presenter at organic farming conferences, consults, and serves on committees and boards of several agriculture advocacy organizations throughout the Midwest. Adam is a machinery geek who uses his passion for industrial design education to lead system designs on the farm that improve operations, including three electric-converted tractors and other self-designed small-scale vegetable machinery and equipment. He dreams of scaling this serious tinkering to benefit organic vegetable technology through partnerships in the US and abroad. In 2015, Loon Organics Farm was chosen as the McLeod County Farm Family of the Year! Thank you for your interest and support of our local, organic family farm!
