Minnesota Food Association
Minnesota Food Association's mission is to build a more sustainable food system based on social, economic and environmental justice.
We seek to impact local food production, grow more sustainable food producers, and enhance their connections to markets and resources. We do our work in the St. Croix River Valley and the Twin Cities Metro Area of Minnesota.
MFA provides a full range of educational programming about organic agriculture to beginning farmers and to all members of the community interested in learning more. Our unique approach uses the rich resources of a Certified Organic farm, located within the 7-county Twin Cities Metro, to engage our constituents directly in the lives of organic farmers and the production of the food they eat. Our farmer training program serves individuals from socially-disadvantaged backgrounds, primarily refugees and recent immigrants. Aspiring farmers can choose to participate in varying levels of our programming, based on their needs and level of commitment to farming.
