Backyard Farming: More Local Than a CSA

A Backyard Farm is a local Twin Cities business whose goal is to help people in Minneapolis and St. Paul grow farms in their yards. The website offers a host of services, ranging from consulting homeowners on what to plant (and where to plant it, how to care for it, etc.) to the most full service option, which includes not only planting and growing organic vegetables, but even picking them and delivering them from your backyard farm to your front door.

The A Backyard Farm website keeps it short and sweet, but it does have a list of local vegetables that are good candidates for your farm, along with links to learn more about plants and farming. I contacted A Backyard Farm yesterday - I scheduled my consultation for this weekend so I can learn more about their services and how they can help me.

Next week I'll post what I learn here at Simple, Good, and In the meantime, check it out.
