2017 Crow Wing County Farm Family of the Year

Congratulations to John and Ruth Jansen for receiving the 2017 Crow Wing County Farm Family of the Year Award!  

The Farm Family Recognition Program has existed for over 30 years and honors farm families from throughout Minnesota for their contributions to the agriculture industry and their local communities. This year's award recipients were recognized at a program held Aug. 3 at Farmfest in Redwood Falls, MN, as well as at locally hosted recognition events.

The Jansen's run Brambling Rows Berry Farm, which produces various kinds of fruit, as well as produce from the farm's seven greenhouses. John and Ruth are currently working on a Zone 3 hardy table grape, a purple raspberry, an extremely sweet squash, an early greenhouse tomato and an Italian green bean that doesn’t rot in cold, wet soil.
