Eat Local Farm Tour July 16
Local farms open their doors for a day full of fun, learning and discovery at the annual Eat Local Farm Tour. Brought to you by your local food co-ops, this free, self-guided event features 29 local farms from Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
Organizers of the event offer some tips: GPS can be spotty in rural areas so check directions on Google Maps before heading out; bring a cooler to store all the farm-fresh goods you may purchase; stay on established paths and don’t pick produce without a farmer’s permission; leave pets at home.
The Eat Local Farm Tour is sponsored by the following local food co-ops who believe that supporting local growers is vital to providing healthy food and participating in environmental protection: Wedge Community Co-op; Lakewinds Food Co-op; People's Food Co-op; Just Food Co-op; Linden Hills Co-op; Seward Community Co-op; Mississippi Market Natural Foods Co-op; Eastside Food Co-op; St. Peter Food Co-op; River Market Community Co-op; Valley Natural Foods; GrassRoots Cooperative and Café.
