Welcoming Another South Dakota Organic Farm to the Blogosphere

Heidi, an intern with Prairie Coteau Farm and Dakota Rural Action, has alerted me to Prairie Coteau’s new blog, which you can find here! I’ve been hearing about P.C. Farm for awhile but didn’t see much online about them, so I’m glad to see their new blog up and running, complete with photos of their beautiful 40 acres near Astoria, SD, and an updated listing of their current available vegetables.

A bit about the farm from their website:

Our farm is 40 acres of rolling prairie, trees, fields and wetlands where wildlife abounds, located on the Buffalo Ridge in northeastern South Dakota. We grow a wide range of vegetables, melons and herbs for the local farmer’s market. Heirloom varieties are a focus, as are specific crops such as melons and gourmet garlic. About 50 laying hens freely roam our pastures, and we sell their eggs through a small co-op. We’re committed to sustainable, organic growing methods that preserve the ecological health of our farm as we strive to be good stewards of the land.

I’m also immensely pleased to learn that Heidi is a South Dakota native who describes herself as returning to her “rural South Dakota roots. I’ve seized the opportunity to return to my home state and become involved in the good work of sustainable farming.”

Heidi, glad to have you back in South Dakota, and I hope you’ll be sticking around for a long while. And for all those who don’t know about Prairie Coteau Farm yet, below is their contact information from DRA’s “South Dakota Local Foods Directory.” Be sure to stop by P.C. Farm’s stand at the next Brookings farmers market!
