Meet Your Farmer at Cherry Rock Farms
September 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT
September is Yard to Table Month:
A celebration of urban and rural sustainable agriculture in the Sioux Empire.
Join Homegrown Sioux Empire out at Cherry Rock Farms and Meet Your Farmer! Also, be there for the opening of their famed pumpkin patch!
Cherry Rock Farms has been family owned and operated since 1925. The farm is located on beautiful Split Rock River where the rich river-bottom soil, summer heat, and chilly winter frost make exceptionally tasty vegetables. At Cherry Rock Farms, they believe in farming responsibly. They live on the land they farm and eat what they grow. They strive to grow quality produce for your family.
Yard to Table month is a celebration of producing, preserving, consuming, and sharing what you grow around you! Yard to Table focuses on how to get your household involved, getting your hands dirty, and learning as you go. The ability to grow and raise the food that sustains us in the vicinity of our homes is important to fostering a self-sustaining and healthy lifestyle while building a community around local food production. Throughout the month of September, skills and information will be shared during events each week around the Sioux Empire Area. Yard to Table Month will culminate in the 7th annual Tour de Coop. All events are free and open to the public.
