Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: Fairhaven Farm is a diversified fruit farm and apple orchard located in Fairhaven, MN nestled between the St. Cloud and Twin Cities metro areas. The farm has been in operation for over 35 years as a fruit farm, transitioned over from corn and soy beans by owner-operators Marsha Anklam and David Macgregor. We have about 10 acres of apples, 2 acres of mixed fruit trees (pears, plums, and cherries), 1 acre of grapes, 3 acres of mixed fruits (raspberry, strawberries, currant, rhubarb etc), 3 acres of pumpkins, and about 1 acre of specialty cut flowers. We are open for pick-your-own flowers, grapes, raspberries, apples and pumpkins and have a retail space along with a commercial kitchen within our renovated barn. We do a little bit of everything including monthly farm dinners, a corn maze, a flower CSA, and developing our own apple varieties. Our aim is to share the magic of our 50 acres by focusing on exquisite flavors, top quality products, and environmental sustainability.
