About the farm
Sogn Valley Farm is a diversified, organic farm located in the beautiful Sogn Valley region in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. The larger farm, on which Sogn Valley Farm is based, was bought by Dana's grandparents Veikko and Phyllis Jokela in 1963. The farm is 360 acres, with about half in cropland and half in a mixture of forest and rolling grassland. For 40 years, Veikko and Phyllis raised row crops, hay, hogs, and cattle (along with four children), before simplifying to just corn and soybeans in their later years. Dana Jokela, the 3rd generation farmer on this land, now grows vegetable crops on a 22-acre parcel of the farm.
Our primary products are organic vegetables, but we also grow native prairie transplants for use in restoration projects and home pollinator gardens. We sell our products through the St. Paul Farmers’ Market, a weekly on-farm market, and Twin Cities-area distributors, food makers, institutions, and restaurants.
