StrongHeart Farms

Eleanor & Pearce


StrongHeart Farms is a regenerative vegetable farm located at Big River Farms in Marine on St. Croix. Now in their third year, their plots are cultivated in a market garden style so that they can provide nutrient-dense, chemical-free produce to themselves and the surrounding community. StrongHeart prioritizes growing food that is flavorful and full of nutrients while giving back to the soil and our earth’s ecological systems. Their certified organic produce can be purchased through their CSA program and at the Stillwater and Kingfield farmers markets. They also distribute to The Food Group’s agency partners so that their food shelf customers have access to fresh, nutritious food.
