Floodwood River Farm


Floodwood River Farm is located halfway between Hibbing and Floodwood off of Hwy 73. It is owned by Robert & Jill Hietala. We grow a variety of garden vegetables, berries, annual & perennial flowers. We have some apples and other tree fruit. In addition, we process maple syrup and many varieties of pickles and jam. Jill also knits mittens and kitchen "scrubbies". We sell at the Hibbing Farmers Market on Saturdays and some Tuesdays. Vanessa and/or Kris Hietala will be attending most Tuesdays during 2021.
