We will be at Pathways Community Church this Saturday for their Craft & Home Business Event! It’s much more than a craft sale! There will be LEFSE and baked goods, lunch, desserts, a $200 gas card raffle and more. Come and learn more about the local small and family-owned business in the Ramsey area.

Do your Christmas shopping locally this year, supporting small businesses – and family farms! – in your community.
Thank you for visiting us for our fall sales and family fun days. We hope you had as much fun as we did! See you next year!
Fall Festivities have begun at the Pearson Family Farm!
Be inspired in your autumn decorating by browsing through our barn. We have the best local selection of pumpkins, gourds, straw bales, broomstraw and cornstalk bundles and gorgeous fall decor items. Don’t miss Al’s farm art – great indoor and outdoor decor he creates from old farm equipment and tools.
Bring the family and enjoy free hayrides and our own popcorn every Saturday and Sunday. The kids will like the (free!) corn maze! Check out our vintage cars and tractors.
And watch for the raising of the barn quilt! Coming soon!
It’s baling season! We have found rye to be the best grain to raise for our straw. It makes beautiful clean bales that are suitable for almost any need.
The Pearson Family Farm barn quilt is ready for installation as soon as the paint is cured! (That’s the farmer’s job. We painted it.)
The Bright and Morning Star quilt block (formerly identified as the “Garden Star” block) was the most popular among our friends and family, approved by the farmer and painted in his favorite colors: John Deere Green, Ford Blue, International Harvester Red and John Deere Yellow. We used the heavy-duty oil-based enamel paint used for the tractors and other farm equipment, so it will bright and durable for years.
We spent four days creating the 8’X8′ quilt block, having a lot of fun and enjoying each others’ company. We took lots of pictures to chronicle the event; check them out on Instagram! You don’t need an instagram to see the pictures. Start at the bottom, because the photos are posted with the most recent on top.
Installing the block is a BIG project, so we will be looking for some volunteers and making a party of it! Watch for updates!
We have started the barn quilt project and are chronicling it on instagram. I will also post pictures here when I have time. We finished all the prep work, including priming the boards, yesterday and today we should be able to mark out the pattern and start painting the design.
We’ve been waiting a long time for this! After years of talking and planning, the barn is finally getting its own quilt block. All of the women of the family are quilters, so we’re looking forward to this project. We’ve never made a quilt block from wood before!
TELL US WHAT YOU THINK: Which quilt block do you like best? White or other light colors won’t show up well against the white barn, so what colors do you think would be good? The quilt block will be 8 feet square.
For reference, here is a picture of the naked barn:
If you have ordered chickens, it’s time to pick them up! If you need to change your order at all, please call or email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to let us know. We do have a waiting list for these delicious, free-range chickens.
We have new chicks growing quickly, so let us know if you would like us to reserve some for you.
The chickens are happy. They are finally old enough – and it’s finally warm enough – for them to get outside and enjoy their new pasture. The white birds are so pretty in the green grass, scratching in the dirt and pecking at tasty bugs.
We’re also expecting more egg layers, so we’ve been spring cleaning and sprucing up the coop.
Happy chickens lay better eggs.
