Would you like to enjoy fresh-picked locally grown veggies and herbs delivered for you to UW-Green Bay each week? Please come to this Lunch ‘n Learn to find out more about CSAs! Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between a farm and a local community of supporters that provides a direct link between the production and consumption of food. CSA members cover the farm’s operating cost by purchasing a share of the harvest. This provides members with a healthy supply of locally grown, seasonally fresh produce throughout the growing season.
Sleepy Hollow Farm & CSA is a small, farmer owned farm in Kewaunee County. They specialize in growing a variety of veggies using sustainable farming practices, and no chemicals, herbicides or pesticides touch your food. (For more information about Sleepy Hollow Farm & CSA, you can visit their website at: http://www.sleepyhollowfarmcsa.com/)
Presenter Suzi Sevcik has a lifetime of farm experience. From growing up on her parent’s dairy farm to now working the fields with her own farm. Using techniques that are kind to the earth to grow veggies, she takes the approach of never ending improvement. Trialing different varieties to see what grows well in their micro-climate, to constantly find better ways to grow veggies and manage weeds and pests. The mission always remains the same – To produce nourishing food that respects that land, and feeds our community and to exemplify a sustainable model for small-farm viability. Suzi brought the shares right here to UWGB last year, once per week during the harvest season, so that it was convenient for employees to pick up, and plans to do the same in 2017!
