To make this product, Great Prairie Foods (based in Minneapolis) does not use various oils from different countries such as Spain or Italy; instead all oil comes directly from California, making it as locally grown as it can be in the United States. Extra Virgin Olive Oil needs to have acidity levels of less than one. Great Prairie’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil has an extremely low acidity level–only a .2. Because of this, it does really well when combined with garlic! Extra Virgin Oil is packed with vitamins E, K, and A as well as polyphenols, squalene, oleocanthol, triterpenes and hundreds more micronutrients that make it a very healthy choice.

It is also important to note that Great Prairie isn’t just about food. It is more than that. Founder of Great Prairie Foods, Todd McIntyre, has a deep vision for his company based upon community development, enhancement and promotion of fitness and wellness, production and promotion of athletic and cultural events and operation of multiple-sport venues. Great Prairie, Inc. is in the process of getting non-profit certification in order to develop a capital campaign to drive support and development for these initiatives.
Profits from the sale of Great Prairie Foods support the future development and programming of the Great Prairie Equestrian Center and the Great Prairie Sports Center in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area. The Great Prairie Equestrian Center will be a multiple-season, multi-sport facility as well as the regional training center for USA Pentathlon and the United States Equestrian Federation. The design plan will incorporate lost Minnesota equine architecture-namely the original Hippodrome at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds and the stable buildings once located at Fort Snelling.
The Great Prairie Sports Center will be the regional training center for USA Swimming, USA Diving, USA Water Polo and USA Synchro. It will also provide training opportunities for USA Cycling, USA Triathlon and USA Volleyball. Both venues will be LEED certified as well as an Environmental Learning Center that promotes sustainable design, renewable energy and water management.
Many other sporting events, sponsored by Great Prairie Foods will support the development of these facilities. For a complete listing of by Great Prairie events, visit www.greatprairiesports.com. Valley Natural Foods is helping sponsor Great Prairie’s Dakota Dash presented by FamilyHealth Medical Clinic at the Dakota County Fairgrounds (Farmington, MN) on Sunday, August 14th at 8am.
