Tuesday, September 18

Stop #1 – Faribault, MN

Faribault Woolen Mills | Join us to learn about a true American manufacturing legend. Nestled along the Cannon River, just south of Minneapolis, a nearly 150-year-old story is still being woven. Founded in 1865, the year Lincoln died, and the Civil War ended, Faribault Woolen Mill
endures as one of the last vertical
woolen mills in America.

Stop #2 – Savage, MN

CHS Savage Terminal | The CHS Savage Terminal was built to provide producers increased access to export markets via the Gulf of Mexico. The terminal is located at Mile 14.5 on the Minnesota River. For over 30 years, this elevator serves as a transfer terminal which also has limited storage.

Stop #3 – Falcon Heights, MN

The Good Acre | Eat a catered lunch while hearing the inspiring story of a local food hub, The Good Acre. The company’s mission is to strengthen farmers, food makers, and communities through good food. Good Acre personnel work year-round to connect their network of growers to wholesale buyers so that farmers can turn a profit on their hard-earned harvests and focus on being stewards of the land.
