Farmer Doug and Lois Hoffbauer are owners of a fruit, vegetable and Christmas tree farm just outside of Duluth, MN. The name Farmer Doug came from our neighbor's grandchildren who love to visit "Farmer Doug". There is so much to see and do at Farmer Doug's. Bosten and Brycen can always find a mud puddle to play in.
Farmer Doug and Lois are dedicated to bring customers the highest quality & best tasting fresh fruits and vegetables possible. Living in Midway Township, and selling products at the Duluth Farmer's Market, and Proctor Farmer's Market helps to make Farmer Doug who he is. They will be at even more farmer's markets this year than ever before. Stay tuned for the dates and Locations.
Duluth Farmer's Market opens on Saturaday, May 1. The greenhouses are filling up and you can find Farmer Doug at the Duluth Market every Wednesday and Saturday from 7am to noon.
Farmer Doug lives this life because he's good at it, but his passion is growing Christmas trees. Graduating from U of M in Forestry 30 something years ago, he has used his education to produce the best local Christmas trees in the Duluth area.
