Profiles In Prevention: Wise Acre Eatery and Tangletown Gardens

Dear Friend,

Wise Acre Eatery and Tangletown Gardens are staples in South Minneapolis. People typically know them for their restaurants and garden center, but did you know that they have a 140-acre farm in Plato, MN where they sustainably grow produce and raise animals?

Co-owners Scott Endres and Dean Engelmann are the dream duo that started both Wise Acre Eatery and Tangletown Gardens. They met as horticulture students at the University of Minnesota, became friends, and started both businesses with the goal of following ecological principles that produce the most nutritious food possible while respecting the earth in order to preserve the earth for future generations.

Tangletown Gardens and Wise Acre Eatery are both focused on sustainability throughout their whole process. From when a seed is planted to when it is sold at a farmers market, every step is planned with care.

Their motto:

healthy soil = healthy plants = healthy animals = healthy people


“We have a little model at the Wise Acre that is kind of the mantra of the restaurant — it’s the shortest distance between the earth, the hand, and the mouth,” Endres said to Gardencenter Magazine.

Wisacre and Tangletown Garden’s choice to be a toxic chemical free and hormone free farm means a significant number of pollutants are NOT entering our environment or the food that they raise and serve. That is why we have chosen to recognize their work as part of our Profiles in Prevention feature.

Wise Acre Eatery and Tangletown Gardens are going above and beyond to protect our environment and educating the community around them to do the same.
