ABOUT WISE ACRE EATERY AND TANGLETOWN GARDENS:
Principles Scott Endres, and Dean Engelmann both started as farm boys, growing up on their families’ farms and learning a love and appreciation of plants, animals, and growing things while preserving the land for future generations. What started as an idea when they were just out of horticulture school at the U of M has grown into a business that now consists of a Restaurant, Garden Center and Farm.
Wise Acre Eatery is their farm to table restaurant located in the South Minneapolis neighborhood of Tangletown. At Wise Acre Eatery they make their food as it was made long ago - when everyone ate organic, sustainable, free range, locally grown food that wasn’t fussy or high-end. It was just good food from scratch, every day. Wise Acre strives to bring guests back to this old standard of cooking using the season’s best from their farm. Even in the winter months, between 80 – 95% of the food served at Wise Acre Eatery comes from their farm just 45 miles West in Plato, MN. Wise Acre Eatery is truly the shortest distance between the earth, the hand and the mouth.
Scott and Dean have been sharing their passion for beauty through unique plants, garden art and creative design for over 16 years at their Garden Center across the street from Wise Acre. They get energized by the plethora of options the plant kingdom provides and pride themselves in their revolutionary thinking way out of the mainstream of retail shops, nurseries, landscape design firms, farms, and garden centers. Over the years we have been called “style makers”, “dynamic designers”, “trendsetters”,” remarkable retail”, “Twin Cities inspiration”, a “don’t miss store” and always the “best garden center”, but among their favorite accolades are things like “shop with staying power” and “revolutionary garden center”.
To date, Tangletown Gardens and Wise Acre Eatery have funded 15 scholarships to the University of Minnesota Department of Horticultural Science. Provided enough fresh, responsibly-grown produce to feed 10,595 families and donated 15,322 pounds of produce to area food shelves last year alone. Their in-kind research donations to the University of Minnesota Department of Horticultural Science exceed $35,000 and the hours spent on independent farm research to pioneer a more sustainable tomorrow for our community are endless.
