ARF farm store, Saturday Mankato Farmers Market 8-12 Best Buy Lot, New Ulm Community Market and Co-op, Natures Pantry Farm, Wysiwyg Juice Co. (in their amazing juices!).

We are celebrating our one year anniversary of our farm store, and the beginning of apple season, with four weeks of drawings, plus a final drawing at the end.

Each weekly drawing will be done on Sundays - win a free bag of apples, applesauce, etc. On September 13 we will do the grand prize drawing, where two winners will win either a new ARF hat or a $15 gift certificate!

Stop out to the farm Monday-Friday 9:00-7:00 or Saturday 9:00-1:00.

Enjoy this delicious Minnesota apple season!!
