Montalbano Farms Tour
Montalbano Farms is welcoming The Sugar Beet Food Co-op and friends to spend a day exploring their farm. Less than 2 hours from Chicago this working farm with CSA program is committed to producing high quality, organically grown produce for local consumption.
From Arugula to Zucchini, Montalbano Farms grows it all. If you think I'm joking check out their CSA harvest schedule here. September will be prime harvest season for over half the crops they grow.
