St. Olaf College alumna Rebecca Carlson’s passion for growing started when she was just a seedling herself on the college’s campus in Northfield, MN. It blossomed over the course of her junior and senior years — literally — when she started her small-scale farm. Ten years later, Becca’s Farm to Fork-registered SEEDS Farm consists of 18 acres of certified organic and GAP vegetables for wholesale accounts, including food co-ops, restaurants, distributors, public schools, food shelves, as well as Bon Appétit at Carleton College and St. Olaf.

Hilltop Greenhouse and Farm has been dedicated to growing high-quality plants and vegetables for over 25 years. Co-owned by Gretchen Boldt and her husband Glenn, Hilltop began with one small greenhouse to start vegetable transplants for their fields. Now working with their three daughters, Gretchen and Glenn have grown into a fullservice garden center and source for local, homegrown, farmfresh vegetables. Hilltop Greenhouse sells its produce to the Bon Appétit teams at Carleton College, St. Olaf College, and Federated Insurance.
