There’s a place for You… at the table with Us!
The main purpose of everything we do is to build relationship and community.
A Bit About Us
How Al and Helen met, how they ended up here on the farm, and why some of these goodies are so significant to us.
The Arends Family
How we got here is quite the tale to be told. Legend has it that in his youth, Farmer Al frequently traveled to exotic, far-off lands. On one such daring expedition, he found himself the woman of his dreams, brought her back home with him, and the rest—as they say—is history.
25 years (and many adventures) later, here we all are — living life and truly loving it. (Most of the time.)
Since the spring of 2018, we’ve been bringing delicious, Neopolitan-style wood-fired pizzas to the fine people of Willmar, MN (and surrounding areas). Though our first love was setting up outside breweries and at large public gatherings, Covid has thrown a wrench in that romance.
Now booking for weddings, graduations, and other smaller, private gatherings in West Central Minnesota.
Chemical & Drug Free
If you’re looking clean Minnesota beef, look no further. The Back 40 MN farm raises cattle using healthy and sustainable practices for both the animals and the consumers. Allowing the cattle to roam free on selective plots of fresh grass gives them the ideal diet, meaning no need for harmful antibiotics or hormones.
