Dawn2Dusk Farm is a 20-acre certified organic vegetable farm 50 miles north of Minneapolis in Cambridge, Minnesota. Founded by Moses Momanyi and his wife Lonah Onyancha in 2009, Dawn2Dusk Farm is committed to a philosophy of using sustainable farming as the fairest way to share the earth’s bounties. In addition to decades of farming experience in Minnesota and their home country Kenya, Moses and Lonah are leaders in the local food community.
In 2020, they founded Kilimo Minnesota, an incubator farm for emerging farmers of African descent. In this 3-5 year training program, farmers receive hands-on experience of crop cultivation and marketing experience, as well as business and production classes, field days at other farms, networking, and one-on-one farm business coaching. At peak growing season, June through September, these farmers in-training share a booth with Dawn2Dusk to learn the ins and outs of markets.
