Restaurant Week: Fall Foliage Farm & Food Tour
Check out three local farms firsthand and get exclusive tours from the owners during this Fall Farm & Food Tour. Pastoral views of rural Wisconsin ablaze in autumn hues will liven up the journey to Square Roots, Sacred Blossom, and Together Farms, where you will learn what makes each destination unique and how they get their products from their farm to markets, restaurants, grocery stores, and most importantly, your plate.
Spend the crisp fall morning walking through greenhouses and fields at Square Roots Farm, sample teas at Sacred Blossom, and feast on burgers and fries after a wagon ride at Together Farms.
Square Roots Farms • Fall Creek – Square Roots Farm is a diversified vegetable farm resting on 40 acres just south of Eau Claire in Fall Creek, WI. They produce vegetables without the use of synthetic herbicides, pesticides, or insecticides. This farm has been providing nutritious greens to Chippewa Valley restaurants since 2014.
Sacred Blossom • Mondovi – This local farm grows a number of flowers, trees, and fruits, which are used to create all-natural tea blends. Sacred Blossom uses mixed polycultures (where multiple plants are grown in the same space in a supportive ecosystem) and hand-picks ingredients to dry and process. Products are available at numerous local eateries and retailers.
Together Farms • Mondovi – Livestock at Together Farms are raised with attention to animal care and environmental impact. Animals are given lots of room to roam among hazelnut and oak trees, and tended to using Intensive Rotational Grazing, which helps sustain them and the land they feed off of.
