Farmer Nathaniel is in his third year of Big River Farm’s education program. This season, he is growing and selling a variety of organic vegetables as a part-time vendor at the Kingfield Farmers Market in south Minneapolis. Some of Nathaniel’s produce is also being sold and delivered directly to some of The Food Group’s agency partners so that food shelf customers have access to fresh veggies.
