Learn About Jacob Daniel Farms
Jacob Daniel has always been an outdoorsy person, and working as a mechanical engineer full-time didn’t come with as much nature as he prefers. So in 2017, he joined the farm incubator program at Big River Farms at Maine on St. Croix, Minn. “I didn’t know anything about farming [back then], I just liked doing it,” Jacob says. “I wanted to see what went into [growing] organic produce….” Jacob farmed with a group for two years, took a break, and then came back in 2022 on his own, securing 1/8 of an acre with Big River Farms. Now, he says he’s learned how much work goes into farming organically and sustainably. We frequently carry red and green butter lettuces and basil from Jacob Daniel Farms at Seward Co-op.
