Star Thrower Farm

 

Star Thrower Farm is a small, diversified and sustainable farm in Glencoe, MN. Our pasture-raised Icelandic sheep give us beautiful fleeces and wool.  Our honeybees pollinate our organic fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers and give us delicious raw honey.

 

About the farm

Star Thrower Farm is located Glencoe, Minnesota. Our sheep graze on pasture during the spring, summer and fall. Star Thrower’s 145 acres allow us to produce hay from the farm to feed the sheep throughout the winter months.

We operate Star Thrower Farm in a sustainable manner with sheep naturally fertilizing pastures and garden waste contributing to compost to build healthy soil.

Wool & Fiber Items

Soft, strong wool, knitted and woven items

Our flock of Icelandic sheep are rotationally grazed on our pasture throughout the growing season. They produce a premium dual coated fleece with soft, strong wool.

CSA

Fresh and local

Star Thrower Farm has a large market garden where vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers are grown without the use of chemical herbicides and pesticides.

Honey

Sweet and floral

The bees at the pollinator-friendly Star Thrower Farm produce raw honey with a wonderfully complex bouquet and flavor.

Subscribe to our CSA

Our CSA offers weekly vegetables and also, at times, flowers, herbs, and fruit. We are a diversified farm and find that our customers enjoy all the bounty of our market garden. Our 2021 season will run for 16 weeks, from mid-June to mid-October.

We strive to make a difference through responsible land stewardship, humane and respectful animal husbandry and the production of high quality, nutritious food.
