The Lake Agassiz Chapter of SFA is pleased to invite you to the 2023 Deep Roots Festival — increasing our connection to local foods and the producers who make them in the Lake Agassiz Region. Join us for the festival, the pre-festival Farm Tours, or both!

Farm Tours, 10 a.m.-Noon:

Hop aboard a bus tour to three farms and learn directly from the farmers about how they sustainably grow food. Stops include:

Silver Dust Farm – Meet Ken and Dori Larson at their organic, 60-cow dairy farm in Ottertail. Silver Dust Farm is a local producer for Organic Valley Cooperative.
Grassroots Farm – Enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of the incredibly popular local greenhouse that specializes in apple trees and an eclectic mix of offerings.
Deep Winter Greenhouse at Slow Cycle Farm – Join our host, John Salman, for an in-depth tour of the innovative Deep Winter Greenhouse design.

Tickets for the bus tour are $10/person (all ages) and do not include general admission to the festival.
