Ever wonder where that burger you're eating came from?
Healthy Harvest of North Iowa will help answer that question from 2:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. on Sept. 22, when it highlights local beef in Wright County that goes from farm to table.
The agritourism experience allows attendees to get a full circle experience with the Wright County food system moving from the farm to store and farm to restaurant with a butcher and brewer in between.
The field day will focus on Purple Ribbon Beef in Clarion, a local farm that raises corn-fed beef.
