Sno Pac Foods is a family-owned and operated organic farm and processing plant in Caledonia, Minnesota, that's been serving customers since 1900. Owner J.P. Gengler got his start in the lumber business, which included shipping ice he had harvested from a nearby spring-fed pond to the south by rail during the summer.

When mechanical refrigeration became available, the Gengler family built a locker plant where townspeople and local farmers could rent freezer space to store their food. They later purchased a farm and started raising strawberries, gooseberries and vegetables, which they processed and froze at their plant. The family always farmed organically, using natural products to sustain the land.

Today the family continues to bring their organic vegetables to families using the same time-honored traditions.
