Aitchison’s Produce Farm
Terry and Bonnie’s farm in Koochiching County in northern Minnesota started over 45 years ago. The Aitchisons strive to produce Minnesota grown and hand- harvested produce while being good stewards of the land. The family runs a roadside market in International Falls.
The operation consists of 25 acres of small grains in addition to six acres of sweet corn and four acres of vegetables. The Aitchisons also utilize a high tunnel to raise several varieties of heirloom tomatoes.
The entire Aitchison family helps out on the farm when they can. In addition to Bonnie and Terry and their children Melissa, Paula and Rob, eight grandchildren also like to lend a hand. And the family gets help from many friends and neighbors.
The Aitchisons support their local Salvation Army and local food shelf. They belong to the Minnesota Grown Association and their local farmers market. The family also supports and promotes 4-H in their local area.
