Andre and Morgan LaSalle moved to their farm in 2016. Soon after, they welcomed their two children, Emilie and Arthur. The LaSalles are the second owners of the farm that was formerly a dairy operation. The family raises grass-fed beef and lamb, pasture-raised pork, chickens, turkeys and eggs on the farm known as ForageScape Farm.
The LaSalles manage 120 acres of certified organic farmland and direct market their products in Mille Lacs County and in the Twin Cities metro area. Their farm has been certified by the Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program with endorsements in soil health, wildlife and integrated pest management.
Andre is a Mille Lacs County Soil and Water Supervisor and the LaSalles are members of the American Pastured Poultry Producers Association.
