Minnesota is one of the best states in the nation to find restaurants using locally- sourced, environmentally-conscious food.

That's according to the Good Food Network, which has revealed its list of 100 eateries nationwide that meet its high environmental standards, of which 11 are in Minnesota.

That puts Minnesota joint 2nd for having the most restaurants on the list alongside California, with the two states behind only Colorado, which has a whopping 40 on the list.

Restaurants that make the list are given ratings from 1-6 that shows how many sustainable practices they have in place, with restaurants ranking for using locally-sourced, environmentally-conscious food supplied by ethical producers.

Of the 11 recognized in Minnesota, eight of them are owned and operated by Kim Bartmann and her restaurant group.
