14 tenants, one roof. From glitter workshops and yoga classes to artisan pizza and sustainable seafood, Garver Feed Mill is doing it all.

In case you missed it, we took a deep dive into Garver’s history as a sugar beet factory + mill granary before it became the local foodie and wellness destination we’re familiar with today. With so much going on under just one roof, let’s meet some of the tenants and explore how to spend a day at the Feed Mill.

But first, coffee
Kick off the morning at Ledger Coffee, a micro-roastery + full service shop based in Madison. Sip on small batch coffee and taste goodies from local bake shops like Heirloom Bakery, ORIGIN Breads, and Level 5 Donuts.

Fueled up and ready to go
Create gifts like bath bombs, hand-poured candles, and mini succulent gardens at The Glitter Workshop or find your zen in one of two wellness spaces: Perennial Yoga + Kosa Spa.

Don’t forget to hydrate
Try NessAlla Kombucha — the organic + fair trade kombucha known as one of the first craft kombucha brewers in the nation.

Let’s grub
Nothing says 608 like a slice (or a whole pie) from Ian’s Pizza. The beloved pizza shop serves up a mix of classic and creative pies. Think: Mac N’ Cheese or Buffalo Chicken pizza.

Now we want something sweet
Everyone knows about the dessert stomach — you know, the extra space for sweets even after a large meal. Pop into Calliope Ice Cream to try the local maker’s original seven flavors + the four rotating small-batch offerings every week.

Settle in for the evening
Snack on Chinese + Korean street foods, sip on bubble tea, and play one of the 250+ board games available at Roll Play. Think: Settlers of Catan, Codenames, and classics like Monopoly or Scrabble. Be warned, you might just play for hours.
