Stone’s Throw Urban Farm is a 3-acre certified organic vegetable farm based on 16 formerly vacant lots in the Twin Cities (including on 15th Av and 28th St in Phillips).

Our mission is to develop as a farm that is an agent of economic and social change, empowering its owners, workers, and neighbors to grow nutritious food, employ and develop ecological farming methods, and work collectively to establish equitable and just systems of food and land access in the city.  Our farm is structured as a limited liability partnership and for profit business, aligning with our belief that growing food should be a viable livelihood and that workplace decision-making power should be situated in people involved in the farm’s day-to-day operations.  As a member of Shared Ground Farmer’s Cooperative, a beginning and immigrant producers’ cooperative, our food is sold through a 200 member CSA, several dozen wholesale accounts, as well as two farmers markets we attend each Saturday At Midtown Farmer’s Market in Corcoran Neighborhood next to Midtown LRT Station in the SW quadrant and Mill City Farmer’s Market located between the Mill City Museum and the Guthrie Theater:
704 S 2nd St, Minneapolis, MN 55401

Our farmers market stands are regularly stocked with salad greens, cooking greens, radishes, beets, carrots, peppers, and heirloom tomatoes (later in the season), along with a variety of other seasonal vegetables
