Welcome to Our Family Farm.
Thanks for stopping by! Fresh Acres Farm is located in Monticello Minnesota and is your destination for a variety of farm fresh foods year round.
In August we are home to a large sunflower field for you and your family to enjoy. In September our award winning family fun festival begins!
Fresh Acres was founded in 2016 when two crazy corporate-types decided to take a leap into farming. Our mission was, and remains, to produce healthy, locally grown food to feed your family, as well as our own. In that vein, we purchase non-GMO seeds from carefully sourced seed companies, and we do not use harsh fertilizers and chemicals – we are not certified organic, but we grow in an organic manner. We also raise animals on the farm, closer to the way God intended them to be raised – they are free-range / pasture-raised, and we supplement with soy-free, transitional-organic feed.
In 2018, we added to our mission by sharing the farm with others through a corn maze. We have all the usual things expected at a corn maze such as additional activities (pumpkin patch, petting zoo, inflatables, combine slide, yard games, corn cannon, bale mountain, and more), as well as vendors to provide food Keeping with our mission, we grow the corn without spraying with harsh chemicals – we use oats as a cover crop and good ol’ elbow grease to keep the weeds low, so you can enjoy the corn maze without worrying about what’s on your shoes when you get home. We hope your family can join us this fall and check it out!
