Live Wide Open - Lida Farm from H2M on Vimeo.
Ryan started in farming as an apprentice at Foxtail Farm of Osceola, WI in 2000 and 2001, one of the first CSA operations in the Twin Cities. After learning the ropes of vegetable production and operating a CSA, Ryan and Maree started out on their own in 2002, growing produce on Maree's home farm in Lake Elmo and selling each Saturday at Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market. Ryan and Maree moved to Otter Tail County in 2004 and started their CSA in 2006 after a couple seasons in production and selling at the Lakes Area Farmers Market in Detroit Lakes. We were blessed to have an opportunity to start our own farm and family near Pelican Rapids.
