Cedar Hill Orchard
Scott & Linda Sederstromare
Cedar Hill Orchard is Lakewinds’ #1 apple supplier, combining old-fashioned know-how with today’s best practices in intelligent growing. More than 20 years in the apple business means that Cedar Hill’s HoneyCrisp, SweeTango Haralson apples—among others—are safely and deliciously grown each year.
Jack believes the best-tasting produce comes from the best farming practices: organic, local and sustainable. He’s committed to keeping his land healthy and environmentally safe. We’re honored to sell Featherstone’s vegetables, including lettuce, kale, cucumbers, melons, heirloom tomatoes, herbs and more.
Future Farm Food and Fuel
Future farm grows greens year-round using aquaponic and hydroponic techniques, in greenhouses powered by methane energy produced by a neighboring dairy farm, Baldwin Dairy. A newer provider for Lakewinds, Future Farm is a 100-year-old farm that’s on the leading edge of sustainable technologies for farming, and part of its business is in consulting with and supplying other farms that want to develop aquaponic and hydroponic techniques.
Gardens of Eagan
Founders Martin & Atina Diffley
Gardens of Eagan provides sustainably- grown, certified organic produce, and educational opportunities through the Organic Field School. Lakewinds’ customers enjoy seasonal vegetables including sweet corn, kale, broccoli, peppers and cauliflower, among others. [NOTE: does Lakewinds sell Atina Diffley’s memoir Turn Here Sweet Corn? Might be nice to add that here if so.]
Living Water Gardens

They specialize in tomatoes, grown without containments or pesticides in hydroponic hoop houses, and they’re our top-selling local tomato. Besides vine-on and slicer tomatoes, Lakewinds carries Living Water Gardens’ basil and hydro cucumbers.
