Local Wholesale Produce for Foodservice Kitchens
Since 2014, The Good Acre has cultivated relationships with small, local growers. We partner with emerging growers to supply local kitchens across the Twin Cities metro area. Every purchase you make supports small growers making a difference on the land. Our network of growers cultivate diverse landscapes and grow unique varieties that promote biodiversity. Every purchase you make builds up a system where monocultures take a backseat, and diverse culture and community take the lead.

How to Work with TGA
Think of us as a small distributor with coolers and a forklift, delivery vehicles, online ordering, and a unique selection of seasonal produce from more than 40 local growers from June into mid-winter. Hearty storage crops and value-added goods like hot sauce, kimchi and other cultured foods, tofu and urban-grown mushrooms keep our business going in the winter months when the soil is resting.
Level Up your Local Food Purchasing
Are you serving local foods occasionally – once in a while, once a month? Work with us to expand from occasional to weekly or daily local menus. We make it easy to source local foods year-round. Reach out today for menu and product planning.
