"Come & Get It: What you need to know to serve food on your farm" uniquely supports farmers interested in understanding regulations and learning from other farmers seasoned in on-farm food service operations. The publication, spearheaded by the Renewing the Countryside, supports farmers in Minnesota and Wisconsin eager to explore on-farm food service with resources including assessments, case studies, and research data to develop their own business plan. The five-part Come & Get It publication (over 120 pages total) offers an industry overview including how to determine if an on-farm food service business is right for your farm. Case studies of nine successful farm businesses in Minnesota and Wisconsin offer “behind the scenes” tips and first-hand experiences from farmers already running successful pizza nights and other on-farm food service events.
