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.
The Eat Local Farm Tour guide books come with maps, hours, tour activities and suggested routes and are available at all Twin Cities Co-ops. More tour information, farm pictures and up to date news of activities can be found on the Eat Local Farm Tour’s Facebook page.
The Eat Local Farm Tour is collaboratively organized and sponsored by 11 area food co-ops including: Eastside Food Co-op, Harvest Moon Co-op, Just Food Co-op, Lakewinds Natural Foods, Linden Hills Co-op, Mississippi Market Natural Foods Co-op, River Market Community Co-op, Seward Community Co-op, St. Peter Food Co-op, The Wedge and Valley Natural Foods.
