Sourcing

local sourcing Year-round

Minnesota is our home and inspiration. We created a local-focused restaurant that celebrates our vibrant region.

We started with a basic assumption: (almost) everything we need is right here.

our producers

We are proud to support local and sustainable farmers and producers. The dollars for about 50% of our food purchases go to local producers, and we use local vendors whenever possible. Check out our interactive map to learn more about our awesome growers and producers! Be sure to visit their websites to learn more about their farming or production practices.

the numbers

We track all of our purchases to show our customers and community where our food comes from.  Here is our most recent by-the-numbers look.

May Sourcing Numbers

The numbers guide

Local = Food grown/raised within 250 miles of our cafe. (Much of the local produce we buy is also organic. Almost all of the dairy products and flour we use is local, and we never serve meat that isn’t local and either grass-fed or free-range. We include produce from our garden in this category.)

Organic = Certified Organic, not local. (We include wines that are not certified organic, but are made with organically grown grapes).

Fair-Trade = Certified Fair Trade. Almost all of the fair-trade products we buy are also certified organic.

Sustainable Seafood = Ranked "good" or "best" by the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program or certified organic.
