About our events

Farmers offer an important perspective on food. But not everyone has the opportunity to talk directly with a farmer or visit a farm. Now is your chance to change that.

CommonGround Minnesota’s annual “Field to Fork" dinners, blogger bash events, ‘Moms Night Out’, and more each provide guests with the opportunity to meet some of the Minnesota farmers growing and raising our food, or to take a tour of a Minnesota farm. Throughout the evening guests enjoy engaging conversation, delicious food and drinks, and even the opportunity to see and experience, first-hand, a Minnesota farm. A special thank you to all of the farm families who have generously hosted our events.
