We are Julia and Colby, excited to announce our second season as Round River Farm wreath makers. It is hard to believe it is wreath season already, but the signs of fall turning into winter are all around us. The small lake near our house has just frozen over, the forested hillsides have lost their leaves and are now a soft grey dotted with green spruce and fir, and the warm crackling woodstove is a welcome contrast to the biting chill outside. With all the root vegetables harvested and stored away in the root cellar, and progress being made on cutting the pile of logs in front of the wood shed, we are now turning our attention to harvesting greens. Although it can be tempting to spend all day cozy in front of the fire, we are grateful for that little push that gets us outside to enjoy the quiet, subdued beauty of late fall. We invite you to bring a piece of the North Woods into your home this season by ordering one of our wreaths for yourself or by mailing one directly to a friend as a gift. We also invite you to sample the taste of Minnesota lakes by trying some of the delicious wild rice we hand harvested this fall.

Fresh Handmade Balsam Wreaths

We hand-weave our wreaths from fresh balsam, pine, and cedar sustainably harvested from our surrounding forests, and decorate with pinecones, princess pine, imitation berries, and a weatherproof red velvet bow. We think of them as a circular forest because they incorporate so many pieces of our beautiful surrounding woods. They measure approximately 24" in diameter and will be shipped out starting the last week of November unless you specify otherwise.

Minnesota Wild Rice

We hand harvest our wild rice from the lakes and rivers of Northern Minnesota.  This is not the same as most commercial "wild" rice found in stores, which has been farmed in monoculture paddies. True Minnesota wild rice grows naturally in shallow lakes and rivers where it is harvested by using long sticks to bend over the stalks and knock the ripe grain into the bottom of a canoe. This is then parched and threshed at a mill. The result is a nutty flavor full of the richness and variety provided by our native wetlands. Add a wild rice package to a wreath or order some separately. Recipes are included.
