New Free Guide to On-Farm Food Service
Minnesota Ag Connection - 05/17/2019

Are you a farmer interested in diversifying into on-farm food service and serve meals on your farm? As local food fans continue to flock to on-farm dining experiences, from multi-course farm-to-table meals to family-friendly pizza nights. This movement opens up opportunities for farmers to launch dining experiences on their family farms and add an income stream.

A new free publication, "Come & Get It: What you need to know to serve food on your farm," is a 120-page guide with case studies of nine successful farm businesses in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Spearheaded by Renewing the Countryside, this project created publications specifically for Wisconsin and Minnesota to help navigate and understand various regulations.

Thanks to these Minnesota and Wisconsin farms for sharing their inspiring stories, best practices & advice:

- Dream Acres Farm (Wykoff, Minn.)

- Squash Blossom Farm (Oronoco, Minn.)

- Moonstone Farm (Montevideo, Minn.)

- Dinner on the Farm (Minnesota)

- Together Farms (Mondovi, Wis.)

- Suncrest Gardens Farm (Cochrane, Wis.)

- Borner Farm Project (Prescott, Wis.)

- Campo di Bella (Mt. Horeb, Wis.)

- Stoney Acres (Athens, Wis.)
