For nearly three years now, the farm crew at Gardens of Eagan has been busy converting another 116 acres of cropland into organic certified soil. As of August 1, our transition period will be complete and we will begin selling our crops as certified organic. To celebrate, we're throwing a weekend-long party. Won't you come join us?
What: Gardens of Eagan Birthday and Organic Certification Party
Where: Gardens of Eagan Farm 5680 209th Street West Northfield, MN 55057

Make a day of it and join us for a Wedge field trip, complete with bus ride and deli-made box lunch. All you have to is register at the customer service desk.

Help us celebrate our new organic land with a picnic dinner on the farm. All the meal's ingredients will be grown by us or by our friends and made delicious by Taya Kaufenberg, Culinary Director at the Wedge.
The evening will conclude with a bonfire and roasting s'mores. Bring your family, bring your friends, and join us for this special chance to spend time enjoying the bounty of the farm you own!
