You choose the route and the farms you wish to visit!!
The Dubuque Food Co-op will have a Welcome Center for Farm Crawl participants to pick up a FREE canvas bag the day of the event. Each bag will include the farm tour map, educational information, a local farm directory and brochures from the participating farms, in case you can’t make it to all five! The Welcome Center will be located at Courtyard in the Schmid Innovation Center (formerly CARADCO Building) at 900 Jackson Street from Noon to 2:00pm. If you’d like to learn more about the Dubuque Food Co-op, plan to visit the Welcome Center at 12:30pm for an official Co-op tour, before you start your farm crawl!

Welcome!On behalf of the Dubuque County ISU Extension, Sustainable Dubuque and many regional restaurants and farms, we are SO excited to be launching two new events this year on Saturday, September 21st!!
EVENT ONE: Driftless Farm Crawl
This event is aimed at connecting residents and families to local food and farms. This event will feature several farms located in the tri-state area that will open their doors to the public on Saturday, September 21st from 1:00pm-5:00pm. We will be providing maps and information for families, as well as descriptions of each participating farm!
See the "Farm Crawl Tab" on this site for the list of 2013 Participating Farms!
Each farm will host at least one scheduled tour during the day. Free demonstrations and education information will also be available for participants. Farms will able be encouraged to sell their product on site during the event, as we hope to increase the economic viability of local, family farms
EVENT TWO: Driftless Farm to Table Dinner
Delicious food from local farms will be artfully prepared by four Tri-state area chefs, highlighting our rich local food culture. This dinner will be a one night only, family-style, four course creation based on what’s ripe and good from our farmer’s fields.
This dinner will be prepared by:
Driftless Market - Platteville, WI
L.May Eatery - Dubuque, IA
One Eleven Main - Galena, IL
East Mill Bakeshop - East Dubuque, IL
