Fairhaven Farm is a charming 50 acre fruit farm run by Marsha Anklam and David Macgregor in Fairhaven, MN, located 20 min south of St. Cloud. Marsha Anklam bought what was then 50 acres of corn over 30 years ago, with hopes of transforming it into a fruit farm.
It began with small patches of raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries, until Marsha met a grape breeder four miles south on Lake Sylvia, David Macgregor, and they soon combined forces to introduce apples, cherries, grapes, plums, and pears to the farm.
Over the years, Fairhaven Farm has evolved into a multi-dimensional farm, which invites the public to join them in enjoying the beautiful place the farm has become. Fifteen years ago they converted an old Yankee barn into a shop, shortly after they added a commercial kitchen, and roughly five years ago combined forces with David’s sister, owner and chef at Cottage Gourmets, Barb Westman to host a variety of events from weddings to monthly farm dinners.
