About Brand Farms

Brand Farms is a small family farm. Originally purchased by Anton and Marie Brand, German immigrants, and has been passed down through four generations. Currently, Aaron Brand is the fourth generation who farms with his father, John. His 84 year old grandfather, Richard, still has a daily presence on the farm.
When Aaron graduated from college he choose to expand the farm, not by increasing the dairy herd, but by choosing to produce products they've never had before. He began with a few hens for their eggs and slowly expanded to 1500 that he has now. At the same time, he heard about a defunct apple orchard whose owner was looking to lease it. He also planted a few apple trees on the farm building site, which has expanded over the years to the current 6 acres and 4,000 trees. Most of the trees are Minnesota varieties, apples that were developed here in Minnesota.
