What's Growing at Lily Springs Farm

After planting, perennial crops need a few years to establish strong roots before producing significant yields. Our crops are now producing strong harvests and we are excited to share them with you! With a variety of berries, nuts, culinary herbs, and tree fruits, our farm's crops are ideally suited to small-scale producers like restaurants, apothecaries, and cocktail bars. 

To inquire about availability, request a sample, or place an order, please contact elle@lilyspringsfarm.com. Delivery available to the Twin Cities Metro Area only.
