About Us

Farmers Market and Woodcraft

We are Brad and Karin Carlson and our homestead Carlsonville (est.1919) is located on the north end of Cedar Lake, Minnesota. We have big gardens devoted to organically grown heirloom vegetables. In addition to selling those at local Farmers Markets, I also cook, can and preserve our vegetables. We sell a wide variety of canned goods, from pickles to salsa, soups and jams.


Brad works in our small woodshop making beautifully crafted kitchen utensils. His speciality is Swedish Style Butterknives made from a variety of wood sourced on and around our farm. He also makes jam spatulas, spatulas, forks and rice spoons, all from beautiful wood. I started doing burned wood etchings that can be added to the woodwork.
