Axdahl’s Garden Farm History
The early years – Brian Axdahl with a prize winning pumpkin.
“Many years ago, when I was just a kid, I would go down to the end of the road to sell sweet corn and pumpkins we’d just picked,” reminisces Brian Axdahl.
That’s when it all started, Axdahl’s Garden Farm & Greenhouse was born.
From freshly picked produce sold at the end of the road to freshly picked produce sold at our farm market in Stillwater MN. Axdahl’s Garden Farm & Greenhouse has grown considerably while we are constantly working to enhance quality and reliability.
Today we at Axdahl’s are proud to serve our customers personally at our farm market and through other partners like Brine’s Market in Stillwater, Lunds & Byerlys in all of their locations throughout MN, as well as restaurants, schools and wholesale distributor partners.
