Sogn Valley Farm is a diversified organic farm located in the beautiful Sogn Valley region in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. The larger farm on which Sogn Valley Farm is based was bought by Dana’s grandparents Veikko and Phyllis Jokela in 1963. The farm is 360 acres, with about half in cropland and half in a mixture of forest and rolling grassland.
For 40 years, Veikko and Phyllis raised row crops, hay, hogs, and cattle (along with four children), before simplifying to just corn and soybeans in their later years. Dana Jokela, the third-generation farmer on this land, now grows vegetable crops on a 14-acre parcel of the farm.
Our primary products are organic fruits and vegetables, but we also grow native prairie transplants for use in restoration projects and home pollinator gardens. We sell our products through a CSA program and Twin Cities-area farmers markets, restaurants, food co-ops, and cafeterias.
