Driftless Trading Post at Sylvan Brewing

Food Truck at Lanesboro Brewery

     In 2023 we partnered with Sylvan Brewing to bring our farm-to-table kitchen to Lanesboro, MN. Sylvan Brewing is fast becoming one of the best brewery destinations in the region. Being built in an old wood-stacked granary, the fit could not be more perfect to continue growing our local food business. We are operating out of a food truck for the 2023 season while a permanent kitchen is under construction to provide year-round food options inside Sylvan Brewing. 
    Our menu consists exclusively of locally produced products. As small farmers ourselves, we are trying to build an avenue for local products to be viable. We raise our own beef 15 miles away in Rushford and feed our cattle spent grain from Sylvan Brewing out on our pasture. We keep our circle small and gather the remaining products from farmers we've gotten to know over the years. We pride ourselves on going nose-to-tail with whole animals and so far, cooking burgers and BBQ does just that. 
     We have developed a robust supply of local foods over the years of building small food businesses. This has allowed us to attain a vast array of products, enough to start a restaurant! The farmers and producers that make this all happen are:
Grandpa Don's Market (Rushford, MN) - Lifetime grazed beef
Huinker Duroc (Decorah, IA) - Naturally raised Duroc pork
Hart Country Meats (Rushford, MN) - Angus beef 
Dover Processing (Dover, MN) - Beef and pork processing
Baker's Field Bread and Flour (Minneapolis, MN) - Stone-milled bread
WW Homestead Dairy (Waukon, IA) - Sliced cheddar and cheese curds
Norsland Lefse (Rushford, MN) - UFDA Chips 
Featherstone Farm (Rushford, MN) - Organic produce
Serio Farms (Preston, MN) - Hydroponic lettuce and tomatoes
Rushing Waters Fisheries (Palmyra, WI) - Sockeye salmon burgers
Jimmy's Salad Dressings (Stewartville, MN) - Sauces and dressings
