  PrairieSun Organic is a family farm owned and operated by the Sasse family. The 5th generation Sasse fammily farm in Nobles County, MN, was bought in 1934 by my great grandfather, Gustav Sasse, from Hamburg, Germany. Records indicate that Gustav arrived in this country in the late 1890's landing in Boston harbor. Even before our family came over from Germany, we were farmers going back as far as records can be found in extreme northern Germany near the border with Poland. Like many Germans in the late 1890's, my great grandfather fled the extreme hardship and control of the regime at the time that was forcing farmers to hand over their hard earned crops to the government. They were starving to death. America was the "dream" for farmers. I hope to keep my great grandfather's dream alive. Today, we are trying our hand at certified organic farming on a new piece of formerly neglected land in Woodbury County in need of being rehabilitated. We are a long way from where we want to be, but we are optimistic that in 2-3 years, yields will be good provided the weather does not continue to plague us. 2010 was a tough year with high winds and rain damaging much of what we produced.

Thoughts on America:
A stable local food chain is a necessity to insure a strong and healthy nation. America has some of the most fertle and productive land in the world. Why send our dollars elsewhere? Buy it fresh and buy it local!
