Tour the Agua Gorda Co-op and learn about their journey scaling up for wholesale markets. “We had a big loss one year,” recalls Javier Garcia, “and now we’re only growing what we need to fulfill contracts.”

The co-op produces on nine acres, and focuses on tomatillos, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and melons.

A carpool is available, departing St. Paul at 10:30 a.m. and returning by 5:30 p.m. A light lunch will be served at the farm at 12:30 p.m. The cost is $20 and registration is required.
