Lori Anderson - On Eagles Wings Farm
The mission of On Eagles Wings Farm is to become a healthy food source to local restaurants, businesses and the hungry in our community by growing fresh produce through organic and sustainable practices.
We believe there is a growing awareness about what exactly it is that we put into our mouths. As consumers have become increasingly educated on this subject, this awareness has caused a growing concern. As a result, we believe people in general are interested in being more health conscious and tend to start with being more discerning about the type of food eaten and how that food was grown and processed. The growing trend seems to be that people are more interested in eating healthy food that has not been raised with harmful pesticides or chemicals. Our goal at âOn Eagles Wings Farmâ is to be a part of the solution to that growing concern by growing produce using organic and sustainable practices.
We are a fairly young farm that is managed by growers with previous farming experience. We are gaining further training and experience on a Growing Farms plot. On Eagles Wings Farm will eventually move 40 miles north of Duluth on to 20 acres of land. Here we will continue our organic and sustainable practices and work toward organic certification. Once we become established in this location, we will also be committed to extending our growing season in the northland. We will accomplish this through the use of High Tunnel Production Methods whereby the culture inside these tunnels is sufficiently warm to extend our growing season at least one month earlier in the spring and one month later in the fall and perhaps longer for some crops. This will be especially true for cold crops that couw.
