Join us as we take a tour of Riverbound Farm, situated along the Missouri River bottoms south of Mandan, N.D. Riverbound Farm is a draft horse-powered organic vegetable CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) serving more than 200 local families fresh vegetables for six months out of the year. Visit with farmers, Angie and Brian McGinness, as they show you around on a lazy, late summer afternoon on the farm.
 
Riverbound Farm
Riverbound Farm is located in Mandan, N.D. on the edge of the beautiful Missouri River. Brian and Angie specialize in growing certified organic vegetables with an emphasis on sustainability and community building. The farm is located 9 miles south of Mandan on Hwy. 1806, near Fort Lincoln State Park. Pasture land, fields, cottonwood forest and the river all merge together there. The farm is a unique and wondrous place. Homesteaded by Angie’s great-grandparents and lived and farmed on for generations, they now find it a great privilege to call this place home. Brian and Angie welcome CSA members to share in the beauty and bounty of their home. Organic vegetables, all-natural meats and eggs are also available for their CSA shareholders. Riverbound Farm can be found on the web at www.riverboundfarm.com and on Facebook.
 
Mission: 
Sustainable farming, while bridging the gap between consumers and the farm that produces their food, creating a stronger local food economy, and, not to be forgotten, making a living as farmers. 
 
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture
Members of a CSA purchase a “share” of the farm’s harvest, often in advance, and in return receive fresh, seasonal produce weekly and a connection to the farm where it is grown. You will enjoy a diverse selection and the taste of the seasons will fill your home with delicious goodness. When you become a member of a CSA you join a community that values the viability of sustainable farming and a healthy food economy. Eat well, support local farmers, and protect the health of the land. Symbiotic relationships are great! 
 
Share The Bounty 
By joining a CSA members are becoming part of an important community endeavor. Riverbound Farm hopes to build a strong CSA that all members can actively be a part of. Members of Riverbound Farm CSA are making a difference in the local economy by supporting a local family farm as well as organic agriculture. Once a week members can choose to either come out to the farm or pick-up their produce in town. Members also get to choose what they want each week from a large variety of produce. Brian and Angie encourage people to come out to the farm to go on a stroll and check out where their food is produced. Volunteer opportunities are also available for those members who want to really get involved. They also have a children’s play area near the CSA barn along with pick-your-own berries, peas and tomatoes. Kids can view the hen-house and pet the pony. Workshops on gardening, natural education and various other themes are also available.
