The Organic Dairy Farm Tour

Carlton Bike Rental is pleased to announce we are now offering local Bike Tours!

Starting immediately on both Fridays and Saturdays, in arrangement with Green Pastures Dairy, area residents and visitors can bike ride to an organic dairy farm.

On Fridays, leave Carlton Bike Rental at 10:00 a.m., ride the beautiful Munger Trail for approximately 9 miles to Green Pastures Dairy, a locally owned and operated all organic dairy farm. Minnesota Farmstead Cheese is made on Friday mornings, and a viewing window is located in the store for those interested in watching the process. Bike riders will then be served lunch, and a beverage.

On Saturdays, leave Carlton Bike Rental at 10:30 a.m., ride the beautiful Munger Trail to Green Pastures Dairy (GPD). On tap for riders is a full tour of the farm. GPD milk in the spring, summer, and fall, using intensive rotational grazing, which means the cows are moved to fresh green pastures daily. You will also enjoy meeting the rest of the farm, including turkeys, pigs, hens, and other farm animals. Lunch will be served as well as a beverage.

Tour includes bike rental, lunch, approximately 3 hours of stress-free living and an Ice Cream Treat upon your return to Carlton Bike Rental. $25.00 per person

Riders of all ages are welcome. To reserve your spot call 218-384-4696 or email us at carltonbikerental@gmail.com

Randy Samarzia Photography Featured Here

One thing the Northland has in abundance is beauty. For this reason we find a similar abundance of artists and photographers striving in one way or another to capture and reflect that beauty. One such artist is Randy Samarzia whose work is on display at Art Dimensions and Carlton Bike Rental here in Hobo Junction. If the weather is nice, rent a bike and take a tour up of the Munger Trail. If the weather's not so nice, stop by for a visit and check out Randy's photos of the changing seasons. They're almost as nice as being there. And when framed by Joelene they make a welcome addition to any home. You owe it to yourself to check out Randy's work.
