Local Foods & Farms

Visit a Farmers Market or a Local Grower near the Mesabi Trail...


The goal of the Northeast Agri-Cycle Tours (NEAT) project is to connect bicyclists with agri-tourism opportunities near the Mesabi Trail.

Whether it's touring a working farm, grabbing some produce at a farmers market, picking berries at a U-pick, or spending the night camping at a farm, each local food experience is unique.

If you would like to visit a farm - please contact them directly to arrange a visit (some prefer advance notice). Most of the farms are within 10 miles of the Mesabi Trail, so they can be easily incorporated into your cycling or travel route.  Enjoy!!
