Community Partnerships

Big River Farms works in close partnership local organizations in donating local produce. Farmers are always paid a fair price for their produce and community members receive the highest quality of healthy local food. Sometimes members aren't able to pick up their share during the season because they are out of town on any given week. Members have the option of donating their share to Our Community Kitchen during the weeks that they request their share to be placed on hold.

 

 
 
 
 Our Community Kitchen is rooted in food justice, a desire to create community, and to encourage social responsibility through food. Our donation based breakfast program promises to delight, served up by volunteers using locally produced ingredients including many certified organic and chemical free ingredients.  
 
The doors opened in June of 2011, and we have been growing strong ever since. We offer classes, food nutrition programs and have partnerships throughout the St. Croix River Valley, including Big River Farms.  
 
If you need a breakfast, we have one for you, if you want a breakfast, why not pay for a friend you haven't yet met. Breakfast is served from 8-10 a.m. Tuesday - Thursday. Our menu changes weekly and includes delicious salads in the summer and soups during the colder months. We encourage everyone to join us!
