The Bachelor Farmer is housed in a historic brick-and-timber warehouse located in the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis and serves fresh and simple food that honors Minnesota’s Nordic heritage. Though it opened in the fall of 2011, the event spaces on the second floor of The Bachelor Farmer “soft opened” to the public in the winter of 2012, slowly taking on events to ensure the high quality of service that guests have come to expect from The Bachelor Farmer. The owners of The Bachelor Farmer, brothers Eric and Andrew Dayton, are welcoming to the community and donated their time and resources as Vice Chairs of the Minnesotans United for All Families effort to defeat the Marriage Amendment last fall.
