Bringing you local chemical free produce, meats, eggs, honey, and soaps
Kragnes Family Farms
Ben and I "Tyne" Are very happy to have finally made the transition from our Minnesota farm to our Washington farm, and are excited to bring our community local, chemical free , 100% natural produce. As well as beef, chicken, lamb, goat, honey, soaps, and more.
A little bit about us
For five years Ben and I successfully ran a 13 and a 1/2 acre chemical free vegetable farm, that in our final years provided healthy local foods to 175 CSA members, several restaurants, grocery stores, schools, daycares, retirement homes, farmers markets, and food shelters.
We enjoyed working with several groups and educational programs to share the knowledge of growing and eating healthy foods.
On our land we also raised 600 pastured chickens a year for meat. All chemical, antibiotic, and steroid free. As well as the occasional pig.
Both Ben and I knew that we would like to farm somewhere closer to the mountains. We finally made the jump and are now able to ski and farm in the same place!
Timber is our farm protector : ) he helps wrangle up chickens and plays with the other animals.
Ben grew up on his family farm in Minnesota's Red River Valley. Being a fifth generation farmer Ben's knowledge of agriculture started at a young age. After collage he spent some time traveling. Realizing that farming was in his blood he returned to the Red River Valley and continued farming with his father. After meeting Ben and I decided to start our small organic vegetable CSA. We ran our farm for 5 educational years when we decided to move our business out to the west coast. Ironically Ben's grandmother grew up not far from our new farm, on Point Roberts, and was in the first graduating class of Bellingham High School. Happy with our choice we look forward to serving our new community.
Tyne grew up in the small Minnesota town Detroit Lakes. Just 45 Minutes east of the Red River Valley. Coming from a dairy farm background agriculture was also in her blood. Along with cattle knowledge she had large gardens in which she learned how to grow vegetables with her parents. After school she traveled from several years. On return trip to Minnesota she met Ben and fell in live with the small farm that they decided to start. The rest is history.
