Minto Island Growers (1)Chris Jenkins and Elizabeth Miller leased their land from Elizabeth’s family in 2008 and were certified organic in 2009. Chris and Elizabeth studied agriculture and sustainability in Colorado and now put their knowledge into practice by rotating crops, feeding the soil with cover crops, and planting beneficial flowers and shrubs to attract valuable insects and repel ones that are detrimental. This summer in our produce department you should be able to find strawberries, butter lettuce, radishes, carrots, cabbage and much more.
