Minnesota Ag Water Quality Certification Program

We are happy to announce another Minnesota Water Quality Certified farmer! We partner with the Stearns County Soil & Water Conservation District and every farmer that gets water quality certified receives a Minnesota Gold 12pk and a Minnesota Gold tin sign. Clean water = great beer!

Luverne and Mary Jo Forbord own and operate Prairie Horizons Farm LLC and became Ag Water Quality Certified in June 2020. Luverne grew up on the farm which has been Certified Organic since 2006. The farm covers 480 acres of perennial pastures and is home to about 150 rotationally grazed Angus cattle. Over 300 acres of row crop acres have been converted to perennial pastures using diverse mixes of warm and cool season grasses, legumes and native forbs. About 100 acres of native prairie is also managed as part of the Forbord’s rotational grazing system.

Prairie Horizons Farm LLC sells USDA Certified Grass-fed Beef from Certified Organic Pastures and a variety of Certified Organic fruits, vegetables and other farm products directly to customers through their on-farm store. Farm tours are available by appointment.
