FEATURED FARMER

Jessica Desens grew up on a century farm near where her family raised sheep, beef cattle, and pigs. She met her husband, Peter at UW-River Falls, where she graduated with a degree in Horticulture. They purchased their current farm in 2011. Farming, gardening, and knowing how food was grown and why, has always been a passion of Jessica's.
