Greetings! Here are some “tangible results” of our efforts in the gardens together so far this season as well as a bunch of pictures of my chickens and turkeys which also contribute to the overall therapeutic milieu at our experiential skills training site on the farm!
A couple of weekends ago I had the opportunity to visit Wise Acre Eatery (serving 90% of their menu items from the farm depending during the growing season and 75% when not in season) in south Minneapolis as well as their garden nursery right across the street, (Tangletown Gardens) on Saturday. Then on Sunday I toured their farm near Plato, MN–Tangletown Farm–what an amazing business!!! All three of these businesses are owned by 2 guys that went to the University of Minnesota and studied Horticulture. THESE GUYS KNOW THEIR STUFF!!! The restaurant has rec’d RAVE reviews and I can tell you I agree with the reviews! I will include pictures in an upcoming blog from my visit that weekend!
