Why 10 Acres?

Every story begins somewhere.

10 Acres is what Black Gold Farms started with in 1928. Leah's Great Grandfather, Hallie Halverson used what he knew about the market, the environment and consumer trends along with creativity and a great deal of passion to do something different and to set the stage for something even greater – that sentiment has lasted for over 4 generations and is now over 30,000 acres. It all started with 10 Acres.

What We Do: Tell the stories of who put food on your plate

How We Do It: Experience, creativity, and fun

Why We Do It: To encourage brands to move beyond their first 10 acres.
