Event Details

Join Naturally Minnesota, Big River Farms, Route 1, and The Good Acre for a farm walking tour highlighting on-the-ground partnerships and innovations that are accelerating new farm businesses.


Walk the fields of Big River Farms to learn how different fields/training plots serve as training and incubation for new farmers, and tour the neighboring 7 acre vegetable farm of grower Robert Lor. Engage in conversation with Big River Farms, Route 1, and The Good Acre about how these organizations support these farmers and the differences in their businesses.


This unique farm tour experience will broaden your understanding of how to engage with and support local farmers and farms, and leave you with tangible actions you can take to support strong food systems in Minnesota.
