On Saturday, July 21, co-op shoppers are invited to visit local farms as part of the 2012 Eat Local Farm Tour. You’ll have fun learning about sustainable farming while meeting the people who make seasonal, fresh, local eating possible.
Last year, more than 500 people visited some of the eleven farms that participated in the tours. The 2012 Eat Local Farm Tour will again highlight Minnesota farms in four geographic regions within a 100 mile radius of the Twin Cities. Click to view the Farm Tour Map.
All tours will be self-guided, meaning you provide your own transportation. This gives you the convenience, creativity, and freedom to design your own road trip and visit the farms you are most interested in.
Tour times will differ at each farm; all tours are free. Look for a detailed guidebook complete with maps, hours, and tour activities at the co-op or download the PDF version of the Eat Local Farm Tour Guidebook.
