Where other trends have come and gone, the local foods movement is stronger than ever, fueled by a growing desire for transparency in food production practices, knowing where our food dollars are going, and the sheer delight of eating a freshly-picked tomato.
At Linden Hills we are featuring all of our favorite local vendors all month long.

It’s almost time for the 3rd annual Eat Local Farm Tour on July 20th!
This self guided tour gives you an opportunity to visit 18 local farms stretching from North Branch down to St. Peter, but also includes three new urban farms in Minneapolis if you don’t feel like traveling far. During the tour you will have the opportunity to walk the fields, talk with the farmers and producers, milk goats, and even try samples of their produce, cheeses and maybe wine if you are lucky.
