A festive day on a poultry farm
Sunday, September 13, 2 – 7 p.m.
Callister Farm, West Concord, MN

The afternoon began with horse-drawn wagon rides from the parking area. There were tours of the farm and processing plant, wine and beer, root beer floats, games for kids and a delicious farmer’s meal of fried chicken (Callisters’ Poulet Rouge), potatoes, vegetables, salads, bread, pickles, and fresh raspberry pie. Proceeds benefited Slow Food Minnesota’s Terra Madre fund.
