Local sustainable farming is on the menu next week as the Door County Environmental Council offers a trolley tour to Waseda Farm, Emerald Acres Farm, and the Peninsular Research Station on July 20th. Participants will see how local growers produce sustainable meat, fruits, and vegetables on the tour.
Visitors will see Waseda Farms’ process for raising organic beef, pork, and chicken, and will tour Emerald Acres Farm to find out how they can support local producers while getting fresh organic produce through Community Supported Agriculture. Jeff Lutsey of Waseda Farms says he hopes to use the trolley tour talks to involve more of the community in sustainable agriculture methods.
David Boyarski of Emerald Acres Farm adds that while organic farming comes with challenges, making vegetables fun and delicious for the community is its own reward.
The trolley will also make stops featuring invasive species research at Peninsular Research Station and a locally-grown organic lunch. You can get tickets to the trolley tour for $12 at the link below.
