  • Fresh Roots Farm – Polson, MT

Fresh Roots Farm founders Karl Sutton and Darci Jones invite you to their farm on Sunday, July 24th, 2022.

The tour starts at 10 am with a midday Montana grown organic lunch and a wrap-up around 2 pm.

Certified Organic since 2012, Fresh Roots Farm cultivates 5 acres of vegetable and flower seeds that are grown on contract for multiple seed companies and ¾ of an acre of berries (strawberries, raspberries, currants and gooseberries), which are marketed through Western Montana Growers Cooperative. Additionally, Karl and Darci developed a value-added enterprise, Flare Pops, with the help of their daughter Kena, that uses the farm’s fruits and herbs to make delicious popsicle treats. They market their popsicles directly at farmers markets and music festivals and wholesale at several retail outlets. Fresh Roots Farm is a founding member of Triple Divide Organic Seeds, whose mission is to develop plant varieties that grow well in Montana and other northern latitudes.

Sunday’s Tour will include the opportunity to see some of Fresh Root’s specialized equipment, and a seed cleaning demonstration. This event is free and open to the public, with some fundraising activities to support the Montana Organic Association. Pre-registering for the tour is encouraged.
