Founded in 2011, Hmong American Farmers Association (HAFA) aims to advance the prosperity of Hmong American farmers. HAFA manages a 155-acre farm in Dakota County with over 16 Hmong families. ArtCrop will be returning to HAFA's 2018 Thanksgiving CSA. Get it here.

RedGreen Rivers™ is a Hmong social enterprise that supports Artisans and Makers from the Mekong Region in Southeast Asia. As a partner RGR sourced raw materials and handcrafted Hmong batik that were transformed by Oskar for the 2017 ArtCrop X HAFA Thanksgiving share.

Hmong Food Traditions is a workshop series to encourage healthy eating, preserve our traditions, and build community through exploring our food on the farm & in the kitchen. In 2017 ArtCrop and Hmong Food Traditions co-hosted a dinner and community art activity on the HAFA farm around food, farming, art and science!


Oskar Ly, in partnership with Hmong American Farmers Association, is a 2017 recipient of a Cultural Community Partnership grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
