Asparagus

We planted over 500 Asparagus Crowns in 2015 and 2016.  A few purple varieties were planted, but most of them are green varieties.  


Our asparagus is harvested in May.  The spears are the new growth coming up from the soil.

During the season, you can purchase our asparagus at the Nisswa Farmers' Market on Thursday a.m. in the Nisswa Legion Parking Lot.  Please call or check Facebook for availability.

Once the spears start decreasing in diameter, it is time to stop harvesting and let the asparagus grow and gain strength for next spring.   When you visit the Farm during berry season our Asparagus will already be 3 to 5 feet high.
