Farm Tour Program for Minnesota Schools

Source: MN Institute for Sustainable Agriculture

Do your students know where their lunch comes from?
The Sustainable Farming Association of Minnesota is now offering farm tours for urban and suburban school groups.

Let us know:

- Where you are located
- The grade and subject of the class
- What kind of farm you are interested in touring (vegetable growers, dairies, pasture raised meat, orchards…etc.)
- When you would like to take the tour
- What size your group is

We will match you with the ideal sustainable farmer in your area and then arrange for a tour of the farm

Your students:
- Will be better informed in how to make healthy and sustainable food choices
- Will gain a greater understanding of sustainable agriculture
- Will better understand their role in our complex food system

Interested? … please contact SFA-MN Events and Youth
Outreach Committee, Jerry Ford, at
or (320) 543-3394

[where: Sustainable Food, St. Paul, Minneapolis, Twin Cities, Minnesota]
