Clinton Falls Farm is home to 18 acres of organically grown fruits, vegetables, flowers, and hay, 6 acres of pristine pasture, and a diversity of wildlife on the remaining woodland. Our farmland is purposefully managed to reflect our dedication to Sustainable Farming, and is deeply rooted in our commitment to ensuring a healthy natural environment, a healthy and vibrant community, and a successful small family farm.
We keep a delicate mix of productive farmland in the midst of forest, with a wooded buffer along the river that reduces erosion and runoff. We do not use synthetic chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers, and we practice efficient use of water, energy, and farm resources, to ensure biodiversity as well as the economic viability of our farm.
These sustainable farming practices allow us to produce a vast array of fruits and vegetables, including strawberries, heirloom tomatoes, winter squash and pumpkins, and so much more. We also grow many varieties of annual and perennial cut flowers and woody ornamentals, including lilies, peonies, sunflowers, tulips, and dahlias.
All of our flowers, fruits, and vegetables are pollinated by the honeybee colonies kept in our pasture.
We sell our produce and flowers primarily through our Community Supported Agriculture program, as well as wholesale to chefs and local businesses. We also sell any extra produce and flowers on a limited basis in "The Hub" at our farm and at the Owatonna Farmers' Market.
We are located in historic Clinton Falls Township, nestled in a quaint valley along the Straight River in northern Steele County, just 45 minutes south of the Minneapolis and St. Paul metropolitan area.
The Clinton Falls Bridge, built in 1894 and listed on the National Registry of Historic Bridges, crosses the river from the southwest corner of our farm, and previoulsy connected area farmers to the Clinton Falls grain mill and creamery.
Today, the grain mill is gone, but the bridge and creamery still stand, just off exit 45 of U.S. Interstate 35, the same exit as the Owatonna Cabela's. Our farm in easy to find from here, just a half mile up County Road 45, right on County Road 99, across the river to the east.
We look forward to your future visit, whether to attend one of our farm events or to visit us as a member of our CSA program.
