2012 Eat Local Farm Tour
07/21/2012 - 7:00am - 7:00pm
The second annual Eat Local Farm Tour, sponsored by the Twin Cities-area natural food co-ops, takes knowing a farmer’s name one step further. The 2012 “Meet Your Farmer!” tour encourages members of the public to visit local farms on Saturday, July 21, and meet the people who make seasonal, fresh, local eating possible. Hands-on education about sustainable agriculture will be provided.
The 10 Twin Cities-area food co-ops sponsoring this event are: Eastside, Just Food, Lakewinds, Linden Hills, Mississippi Market, River Market, Seward, St. Peter, Valley Natural Foods and The Wedge.
All tours are self-guided and free. The hours of operation will differ from farm to farm. Look for a free, detailed guidebook complete with maps, hours, and tour activities at all of the participating co-op locations starting June 1.
