We are excited for the annual Eat Local Co-op Farm Tour coming up on Saturday, July 15 in partnership with Twin Cities area co-ops.
The Eat Local Co-op Farm Tour was created to showcase local farmers that bring local food to our tables. Each year, the tour highlights Minnesota farms, allowing the general public to meet directly with local producers to learn more about our food system and the importance of eating local.
“We’re proud to be a sponsor of the Eat Local Co-op Farm Tour,” says Tom Vogel, Marketing Manager for Seward Co-op. “We aim to sustain a healthy community, and part of that includes connecting our customers to the farmers that produce the food that they eat.”
Additional sponsors of the event include Lakewinds Food Co-op, Wedge Community Co-op and others. The event takes place on Saturday, July 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free to the public. Visitors are encouraged to map out their self-guided routes. You can see a map of the farms here.
