, an amazing business in the Ninth Ward that tills the soil throughout South Minneapolis and the Frogtown neighborhood of St. Paul. Stone’s Throw operated their own Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, and also sells produce at local farmer’s markets and restaurants.
Stone’s Throw provides a great example of non-traditional uses of urban land, but they are doing great work throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin with the establishment of their farmer co-op, Stone’s Throw Agricultural Co-op.
The Co-op partners with farms like the Agua Gorda Co-op
, to help farmers market and recieve fair prices for their goods.
