Visit us on Saturday, July 19 during the Eat Local Farm Tour

We are very excited to be opening up our farm on July 19 for the Eat Local Farm Tour. The tour is put on by local co-ops in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market to showcase the local farmers that make our seasonal, fresh, local food system possible. Cedar Summit Farm has participated every year that the tour has been put on, and we are thrilled to be working with our stores again.

This year, the tour happens on Saturday, July 19. We will be opening the farm early and giving free tours at 9, 10, 11, and 12. Our farm store will be open the entire time and we will have some extra treats for the kids. Tours will be led by Dave, Florence, and other members of the Minar family. Tour the creamery and milking parlor, view the pastures, and meet the herd. We recommend wearing comfortable shoes, sunscreen and bug spray. Remember, we are not doing Milkapalooza this year, so the Eat Local Farm Tour is your chance to come down and see the farm for free. We look forward to meeting you.

Eat Local Farm Tour to visit Cedar Summit on July 30

Cedar Summit Dairy Farm in New Prague, MN will be featured on the southwest leg of the Eat Local Farm Tour on Saturday, July 30th. Tour goers will be able to meet owner Dave Minar along with visiting the creamery and production facility, including viewing cows, pigs, and chickens at pasture. “Our population today is far removed from agriculture,” says Minar. “We need to educate our next generation on the importance of a sustainable local food system. Local food doesn’t have to travel far, helping us conserve our resources. Moreover, it is about getting to meet the farmer and seeing what his operation is all about. It helps build trust and a positive relationship, which is key to selling any product.” Many local farms have committed to participating in this year’s tour.

On Saturday, July 30th, the Cedar Summit farm store will be open from 9am until noon. Dave will begin his tour of the farm at 11am. Join us!
