Co-op Farm Tour

Experience your food in a new way: directly from the source. The Co-op Farm Tour is a unique opportunity to explore the farms in your area, to connect with the families that bring fresh food to your table, and to inspire one another to support our local, sustainable food system. On July 14th over 30 local farms will open their gates and barn doors to the public to share in this experience with you. The tour is a self-guided event and free for anyone to attend. This year you’ll find live music, hayrides, food trucks, yoga in the field, craft beer, blueberry picking contests, disc golf, and more. Each farm offers unique activities and experiences – exploring this website and the tour guide will help you get the most of your day.

The 8th annual Co-op Farm Tour is brought to you by these local community-owned food co-ops who believe that supporting our local growers is vital to strengthening our community, environment, and local food system: Eastside Food Co-op, Harvest Moon Co-op, Valley Natural Foods, Just Food Co-op, Linden Hills Co-op, Lakewinds Food Co-op, Wedge Community Co-op, Mississippi Market Natural Foods Co-op, People’s Food Co-op, River Market Community Co-op, Seward Community Co-op, Saint Peter Food Co-op and Deli.

Ferndale Market Farm Tour

Take a tour of our family farm to see how we have been raising our free-range turkeys for three generations! Free hayride guided tours run every 30 minutes and are a great way to learn about turkeys, our farm, and where your food comes from. There are lots of activities for kids and an on-farm store featuring products over 100 local farmers and food makers. Less than 30 minutes from the Twin Cities, Ferndale Market is a great place to connect with local foods.
We hope to see you on the farm!
