We’ve got some additional details on what promises to be a fantastic event and a chance to visit a farm that has been a vital part of Minnesota’s farm-to-table movement. Since 2002, most of the plants sold at Tangletown Garden Center have been grown at Tangletown Farm, along with those those installed in their landscape projects.¬†All fresh produce from the Wise Acre Eatery is also grown at the Plato farm. In addition to produce, the Tangletown folks raise grass-fed Scottish Highland beef, pasture-raised Berkshire pork, free-range chickens, turkeys and ducks. Anyone interested in gardening or food will love this event.
