Showing This Weekend!
Nature: A Walking Play at Squash Blossom Farm

Nature.jpg

TigerLion Arts presents Nature, the mythic telling of Emerson and Thoreau's mutual love affair with the natural world. Grounded in the story of their friendship, this virtuosic production offers a perspective on their lives that is strikingly relevant, richly complex, and yet utterly simple. Nature is performed outdoors as a "walking play." A professional ensemble of actors takes the audience on a journey through the natural environment as scenes unfold around them. Bagpipes, ancient flutes, drums and rich choral arrangements are intricately woven into the experience -- performed on the beautiful 1910 farmscape at Squash Blossom Farm, Oronoco, MN. This weekend (October 7-9th) only! Learn more and get your tickets HERE.

Come and Get It!

Whether it is a dinner bell or the classic “chuckwagon” style triangle, people on farms across the country have heard the ringing and accompanying cry of “Come and get it!” as the call to a great farm-fresh meal. These days it is not only the farm-hands rushing to the dinner table – our region is home to the pioneers of on-farm dining! Just a few hours driving can bring you to well over a dozen “Pizza-Farms” and other spots serving the freshest imaginable food. You can sign up for a Dinner on the Farm and celebrate local food right at the source!

Check out our Come and Get It listings to find great places to eat on the farm!
