About Our Homestead

Welcome to Poly's Farm, our blog where we share the lessons learned and stories from our suburban homestead in Minnesota.

Whole foods recipes and simple living recipes that you can grow yourself

Our goal is to grow over 75% of the plant-based food we eat and create a garden-to-table home.

Welcome to our suburban homestead nestled in the heart of the picturesque suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Here, on our quarter-acre of land, we’re on a journey to cultivate an efficient, highly automated urban farm. Our story is one of determination, learning, and a love for the land that has unfolded over the past four years since we bought our home.

We plan to continue organizing and tidying our 400 sq. ft. backyard garden, frontyard herb garden, and frontyard edible landscape garden. As we maintain the grounds, we’ll also be experimenting with growing what we can indoors too.

As we navigate the challenges of suburban homesteading, we invite you to join us on this ever-evolving journey.

We share our experiences, both the triumphs and the lessons learned, with the hope that our story ignites a spark of inspiration in others. The dream of growing our own sustenance has not only reshaped our landscape but has also woven a tapestry of connection between us and the land we call home.

Here, in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Poly’s Farm is more than a collection of plants; it’s a living testament to the belief that a quarter-acre of land holds the power to nourish both body and soul. As the sun sets over our gardens, we invite you to be a part of our story, to sow the seeds of inspiration, and to cultivate your own self-sufficiency.

Welcome to our suburban homestead, where the journey is as bountiful as the harvest.
