Our adventure with Forager Farm began in 2013 after returning home from 6 months spent managing a 100 box vegetable CSA in southeastern Australia. We returned knowing we wanted to continue farming. Other than family we weren’t particularly tied to putting down roots in North Dakota. But there was something undeniable about building on our dreams in the place where we grew up. There were wide open markets and opportunities we didn’t have anywhere else. We knew we’d have to work extra hard on educating our communities, that we’d maybe get strange looks or that many wouldn’t find it a good idea. But after six years of operating Forager Farm we know we are exactly where we’re meant to be.
2020 will mark our 7th growing season. We supply the community through local restaurants, food co-ops, farmers market and our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. In addition to the veggies, we sell our artisan sourdough bread and pre-baked pizza crusts at BisMarket. We also have rotationally grazed dairy goats for our household (for now ;).
For the last 5 years we’ve been growing on Jonathon’s family farm near Streeter, ND, but in the fall of 2019 we bought our own farm (cue happy dance!). 2020 will be our first growing season on our new property in Mandan, ND. We’re just a short 10-15 minute drive from Main St Mandan, south on Highway 6.
