About Racing Heart Farm
Racing Heart is a small farm using sustainable and organic practices to grow local food for year-round eating. Much of the year in Minnesota, the produce found in the grocery store is being trucked or shipped from thousands of miles away. This comes at a cost to the environment and the local economy. At Racing Heart we are committed to changing that by providing fresh vegetables grown within 30 miles of the Twin Cities. By harvesting the fall abundance and keeping food fresh through proper storage techniques, our members can enjoy local veggies all year long!
