Summer Farm Tours

Friday, September 10, 2021 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Revel in Minnesota at its best during three walking tours where we will explore local farms that are using innovative strategies to restore our water and soil, revitalize rural communities, and deepen cultural roots. Each free tour runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and includes a catered lunch and a unique keepsake. Registration is capped at 45 guests to ensure an intimate experience. We hope you can join us for one or all of these special outings in our Climate Re:Action series.

Join us!

JULY 23 AT SHARING OUR ROOTS FARM — 4905 315th Street, Northfield, MN

Sharing Our Roots demonstrates a model for a resilient future: A biodiverse system of symbiotically connected livestock and perennials, with no chemical inputs, that builds soil, retains and cleans water, and delivers economic benefits to the community. Meet us at this 100-acre farm to see firsthand how perennial farming can mitigate climate change, then stay for a sit-down lunch served al fresco by The Local Plate. We’ll send you home with a gift from Keepsake Cidery.


AUGUST 27 AT DREAM OF WILD HEALTH — 16085 Jeffrey Avenue North, Hugo, MN 55038

Dream of Wild Health plays a unique role as one of the only Native American-led farms in the metro area. Join us to learn how they are restoring health and well-being in the Native community by recovering knowledge of and access to healthy Indigenous foods, medicines, and lifeways. Enjoy lunch and a keepsake featuring indigenous foods and recipes from The Sioux Chef.

Lunch will be provided under a tent, so this event is rain or shine! Be sure to wear comfortable shoes. Register >>


SEPTEMBER 10 AT FITZGERALD FARM — 11407 County Road 9, Plato, MN 55360

This family farm is at the vanguard of organic farming in Minnesota. The Fitzgeralds have raised certified organic row crops for 20+ years and serve as consultants to other farmers seeking to make the switch to organic production. From planning to storage, seed selection, pest and weed management, technology, and marketing, these folks are experts. Let’s learn from them. Lunch will be provided by Wise Acre Eatery. We’ll be visiting two farms during our tour, which are approximately 15 minutes apart. The first farm is located at 11407 County Road 9, Plato, MN 55360. We will head to Fitzgerald Farm afterward.

Lunch will be provided under a tent, so this event is rain or shine! Be sure to wear comfortable shoes. Register >>
