Main Street Project
Truly Free Range, Pasture Raised Chicken
Studio TimeOut supports farmers who provide local, healthy food that’s good for you and the planet. Main Street Project raises chickens in Northfield, MN using sustainable practices that support the chickens and the earth.
Main Street Project delivers to the Twin Cities once a month and Studio TimeOut is one of the drop off sites. Order whole, frozen chickens by the box (5 in a box) for about $3.19 per pound. It’s an opportunity to get to know your farmers, where your food comes from and how it was raised.

The 100 acre farm demonstrates their unique model of a highly efficient, Poultry-Centered Regenerative Agroforestry system.
What does that mean?
Chickens range in paddocks designed to mimic their natural habitat. They provide meat, eggs and natural fertilizer. Hazelnuts and elderberries are planted inside and outside the paddock to provide perennial cover for the birds, as well as cash crops for the farmer. Annual edible crops, like beans and garlic, are planted between the rows of perennials.
It’s a biodiverse system of symbiotically connected livestock and perennials, with no chemical inputs, that creates the potential to build soil, retain and clean water, and deliver economic benefits to the community.
The chickens are never fed GMOs and are free to dig in the dirt and run around throughout the day.
Organic Non-GMO Microgreens
In between sprouts and full-grown greens, microgreens are packed with even more nutrients and are excellent in salads, on sandwiches or burgers, in omelettes, or to garnish homemade soups and stews.
Lucy and Ruston Aaker, with their two little boys, grow microgreens and other fruits and veggies on their 1.25 acre property in Roseville, MN. They believe in clean, small-scale, and sustainable living as a way to build healthy people, heal the Earth, and foster local economic growth. It’s about the connection between community and the land we live on.
They deliver microgreens to Studio TimeOut every week.
