We get a little excited about good food and community.

Because of that passion, we are now cooking up some of the tastiest pizzas around in our wood fired oven right here on the farm, using ingredients that we’ve lovingly grown in our beautiful valley or sourced from other local farms. Pizza nights at Luna Valley Farm offer delicious, homegrown food in a tucked-away setting. Come wander the field roads, relax and reconnect over our artisan pizza.

We invite you to linger a little longer by booking one of our platform tents nestled on our oak savanna valley side so you can wake up to the sights and sounds of life on the farm.

Pick up some pasture-raised meats from our freezer to take a taste of our farm home with you.

Come out to the farm. Congregate. Connect. Indulge in good food and community.

Located inside The Landing, Root 43 is bursting with healthy options and an all-inclusive environment! Try an acai bowl, smoothie, juice, or some of Mama’s Granola. Acai berries are grown in South America and have a short shelf life, so are not available fresh anywhere except where they are grown. They are full of antioxidants and extremely low in sugar compared to other fruits. "Juicing" can remove toxins from the body, help with digestion, help lose weight, and boost your immune system, and Mama’s granola? Well it’s truly love sprinkled on top of your bowl, or bagged up for you to take on the road. Regardless of which you choose, we look forward to serving up something sweet (yet extremely healthy) for you soon!

Located on the West side of Decorah, The Landing Market is an indoor food and retail market. It is the home to a variety of flavors and goods featured by local food vendors and members of the community.

The owners, Pete, and Kari Espinosa wanted to create a space to gather, provide opportunities and support for all groups in Decorah through positive interactions and inclusion. This vision of warmth and community delivers a comfortable and convenient setting to relax and indulge, while also extending a welcoming opportunity to engage and employ our friends at The Spectrum Network.

This 5000 sq. ft. space has subtle styles of Scandinavian design and a fireplace to cozy up next to. We wanted to create a bright and warm, yet functional space where people can get out of the house or dorm room, and still feel the comfort of being at home. All are invited to stop by and grab a quick bite, stay and dine-in, have a drink, work, surf the web, or just gather with friends.

The Landing Market has made it quick and easy to pop in with our convenient twenty-minute parking in the front, plus more parking in the back for those who would like to stay and congregate. Being located close to Luther College provides students an off-campus retreat and a place to unwind after class. By providing early store hours, The Landing Market offers early birds another beautiful setting to enjoy a cup of coffee. Additionally, with the location being right next to Pulpit Rock Brewery, patrons can hop over for a quick bite to eat in between sampling local brews.
