At Grow North, we work to create an interconnected, sophisticated, invested, and accessible ecosystem for Minnesota’s entrepreneurs and innovators across food and agriculture.
Farm Tour at Thousand Hills
Join us on July 28th for a farm tour, networking, food, and beverages! Head out to the Thousand Hills Lifetime Grazed farm in Clearwater, MN and immerse yourselves into multi-species regenerative agriculture. We will be strolling through the pastures and woodlands learning all about rotationally grazed cattle, free-range pasture-raised chickens, pigs, and goats. There will be a guided farm tour from 10am-12pm, with a networking/socializing lunch beginning at 12pm at the farm's very own rustic lakeside pavilion. For lunch, Thousand Hills will be grilling up some of their delicious 100% grass fed beef products along with sides and beverages. We can't wait to see you out on the farm!
A Digital Destination for Resources and Information
Scaling ideas require resources and support. We aggregate resources in one digital destination so entrepreneurs, resource providers, and more get what they need in fewer clicks and coffees. We have over 200 resources in Grow North's Resource Navigator database and are always look for more.
Education and Connectivity Programming
Growing business that will drive change in our food system requires expertise on commercialization and scale. Our programs strive to 'democratize the accelerator' and give broader access to high quality, industry-specific education as well as drive interconnectivity across the food and agriculture sector.
Experiences that Elevate and Inspire the Entire Ecosystem
We lead large scale events and experiences to create onramps to our community, drive intersections and connectivity, and spotlight Minnesota's ecosystem of entrepreneurs, innovators, experts and industry leaders.
Act as Ecosystem Connector and Navigator
We make it easier to navigate and maximize Minnesota's growing ecosystem by acting as a starting point for growth-focused businesses as well as organizations and individuals who want to get more involved. We represent Minnesota as a sought after speaker at leading industry events and also convene leaders working across food and agriculture to drive collaboration and maximize potential.
