Food

The Bachelor Farmer serves fresh and simple food that honors Minnesota’s Nordic heritage. Paul Berglund and his team source the best ingredients available, which often means buying from local farmers and purveyors. We use organic products whenever possible and also grow our own herbs and vegetables on our rooftop farm, which is the first of its kind in Minneapolis.

Our appetizers start at $8 and our entrées range from $16 to $28.
