Welcome to Root Pass Acres Farm.

Established by a desire for homesteading, community and self-sufficiency. Root Pass Acres began in 2019 and quite by accident. 

Jenny lived a mere 8ft away from the fella next door, smack dab in the middle of St. Paul, MN. It wasn't but a few short conversations and her heart was hooked on the idea of a life with him. Fast forward one year later and they've bought a house on some land and dug their first garden and added their first chickens.

In 2020, our dreams came true when we found out we were pregnant with our beautiful son, Henry. Jenny's idea of what she thought she wanted in life quickly changed from climbing a career ladder, to settling into being a mom and finding ways to spend more time doing what she loved, and not what she once thought she was supposed to do. That idea evolved into growing healthy food for her family and living a modern homesteading type existence. Not forgetting where she came from, she decided that the best way to live a beautiful life, is to share it with others through good food and beautiful connections.
