The 2017 Co-op Farm Tour has released their guide to the July 15th event. There will be over two dozen farms participating across the Twin Cities metro area (we are three of them!). This is a great chance to see local farms up close and doing their part to make sustainable, local farming with a purpose within reach for everyone.

It's still a couple of months off (July 15 will be here fast!) but we're trying to get a feel for how many people might attend the Co-op Farm Tour or the potluck BBQ we are throwing for our members afterwards. If you could take the time to let us know if you are interested, that would be awesome!
