2022 Backlund Acres Team
Here are some pictures of our Co-op members this year. There are a couple co-op members and a lot of kids that I wasn't ablet to get pictures of. Co-op members have been coming each week since the beginning of May (some even March and April) to help with everything related to growing food for our CSA. In exchange they got a free CSA membership and access to discounted meat and other food related perks. They were here each week in the cold, rain, heat and mud working on their knees, with their hands seeding, planting, weeding, harvesting to accomplish the giant task of growing and distributing food for 100 + people. It was so fun to be a part of this incredible amount of work we accomplished together. If you are interested in joining the 2023 team, sign up to get our emails on our website so that you are notified when membership for that opens. Feel free to reach out with questions.

I have few hundred pounds of tomatoes for sale if anyone would like to do some canning this weekend. (Not all of them are pictured) Canning / sauce / salsa varieties are San Marzano, Amish paste, speckled Roman and Italian heirloom. All good for sauce or salsa. I also have large amounts of salsa ingredients like spicy peppers, onions, garlic and cilantro.

Grass-fed lamb is so tasty and good for you too.  Health nerds like myself, Click here for an article about the nutritional value of lamb. We choose to be picky about how our meat is raised out of prudence. We want the most bang for our buck!

Virtual Field Trip to Backlund Acres

The MN Department of Ag department called Ag in the classroom came here today for a virtual field trip with elementary classrooms across the state. It was so fun! Field trip was short and there was much we didn't get to do, but I think its a great way to go on a tour of the farm if you haven't been here. Especially if you are a customer, you should know where your food comes from!:) Hope the link works, I haven't watched it and I'm not tech savvy.

Tomato Floodgates Have Opened!

The floodgates have opened and we have the most beautiful crop of heirloom tomatoes this year. I think we planted about 15 varieties of tomato seed last March in the greenhouse. We may have gotten a bit carried away and realized once we had about 900 plants, that we should probably be done planting....

Backlund Acres will be a new vendor at the Downtown Chaska Farmers' Market! They sustainably grow vegetables at their farm in Belle Plaine. At the market, they will also offer fresh granola and baked goods, pasture-raised eggs and chicken, and more. Here is a message from owner Sheila -

Hi Downtown Chaska Farmers Market! This will be our first year at your market and I am looking forward to getting to know you all this summer. Wanted you to know that I am making egg and micro green deliveries to the Chaska area each Thursday in April. Visit my website to place an order :)

Sheila Nick Backlund - your spices are on their way! I had fun shopping for them and got quite a variety! Picked you up some saffron as well.

Thanks Sheila for helping fill in the veggies for this week’s menu 😀
