Eat Local Farm Tour Features 17 Farms
The Eat Local Farm Tour, sponsored by Twin Cities-area food cooperatives, will be held on July 20. Each year, the tour highlights Minnesota farms, allowing the general public to meet directly with local producers to learn more about our local food system and its importance.
This year, 17 local farms are featured. Information about them can be found in the guidebook that is available at each of the participating coops. The guidebook comes with maps, hours and tour activities, with suggested routes for the tour.
The organizers say the tour aims to provide “transparency, ethics and traceability in food production,” along with the chance to get out of town. Eleven Twin Cities-area food cooperatives sponsor the tour and have guidebooks. They are 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.
