Coop Tour 2023 - Saturday, September 30th, 10:00-4:00.
This year, the coop tour will be held on Saturday, September 30th from 10 am - 4 pm. This is a free event! Here's how it works: chicken keepers from around the Twin Cities sign up to volunteer their coops, we compile the addresses into an easily accessible map, and then on Saturday, September 30th anyone who wants to can visit any or all of the sites on the map from 10 am to 4 pm. You can get inspiration for your own coop, start planning a future flock, or just talk chickens! You can find the map here which we will continue updating as more hosts sign up.
Stop at the store during the tour for fun giveaways with local organic feed producer, Mile Four Feed! We will also be accepting nominations for new chicken breeds that we are considering for next season and will be doing temporary tattoos in store (chickens, of course). T-shirts and stickers with this year's Coop Tour design are available for sale at the store.
Below is a selection of some of the coops already on this year's tour, as well as our official Coop Tour artwork by local artist Kenneth Rivera, @solyluna on Instagram!
