Indigenous Food Share (IFS) CSA

“This was my first CSA share and I love receiving it! It makes my week. I have a ten month old son who recently started eating solids and he has enjoyed so many foods from the share! It has been wonderful to know he’s eating locally grown, organic produce. The fact that we are able to support an Indigenous farm means so much to me. Pinagigi!”

“I really enjoy the wonderful IFS boxes and that they are culturally curated. This year the cost was covered and I'm grateful for having continued access to healthy food while I'm on a budget. Pinagigi for all you do!”

-IFS Member, 2022

"It was fun to get some of the processed foods like the sun-dried tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, and herb-infused oil.  This got me excited about processing some of the things I grow at home."

"Having access to fresh produce is extremely important on the path to leading a healthy lifestyle. It’s also given us the opportunity to try a larger variety of vegetables that we might not otherwise buy on our own."

-IFS Member, 2017

Share Size

As the land calls us to raise our plant relatives in increasingly sustainable ways, we’re adapting our previously “Large” and “Small” Indigenous Food Share options into a single, smaller sized box that we’re calling our Harvest Basket

Our Harvest Basket will come with a variety of 6-8 vegetables, fruits, grains and/or legumes each week for the 16 week season, delivering to our relatives the freshest available food from Dream of Wild Health’s farm.  We are also offering a Fall Harvest Basket in a Large box, to fill your pantry with storage crops, as well as fresh harvested foods. We are making these size changes for the following reasons:

  • Climate change is keeping our fields wetter for longer into the spring; We’re starting our growing season slightly later and with different plant relatives.  
  • Our soils need rest and rejuvenation; We’re planting some of them with cover crops instead of food to replenish nutrients and support pollinators.  
  • Our community is asking for more traditional Native foods; We’re putting emphasis on deepening relationships with relatives including: beans, blueberries, chokecherries, corn, highbush-cranberries, peppers, potatoes, serviceberries, squash, strawberries, sweet potatoes, sunchokes, tomatoes, and wild plums. 
  • Our community is asking for more ways to engage with our farm; We’re deepening relationships and finding different opportunities for Native organizations to continuously shape our programming – including the foods and medicines that we grow. 

Payment Plans and Sliding Scales

We were happy to continue offering a sliding scale payment model and payment plants for our Indigenous Food Share program. This reflects part of our mission, which aims to increase food access to Native families in the Twin Cities. We also offer a work share option where IFS members can trade work on the farm on pre-arranged dates as another way to pay for their share.
