About Us
mpel Family Farm is located in Butte, AK, an area with rich soils, abundant water and wilderness for 150 miles to the east. They grow over 100 varieties of Certified Organic vegetables on 135 acres that Farmer Mark’s dad purchased from the Federal Government in 1960. Mark’s grandfather (a Russian immigrant) came to Palmer in 1944 when Mark’s father was just 14. They purchased a farm on the Springer System where Ben Vanderweele has the first circle irrigation in the state. The Farm was later sold in 1953, but the young Rempel could not stay away long and soon purchased the Butte property which has soils much like those in California where he was born.

By 1962 Mark was growing tomatoes and cucumbers for local stores, and in the 1970’s grew carrots to put his children through college. Thus began the now famous Rempel Carrots. In 1990 Mark and his wife, Tammy, took over the farm and by 1992 were farming organically. In 1999 they became certified through Alaska Organic Association which they helped to organize. Farmers Markets are their main outlet because they enjoy knowing their customers and growing what they need and want. The diversity of our vegetables they grow is driven by their customers’ desires, their suggestions, and what the farm can grow up here in Alaska.
