In honor of our Chicago roots, Elsewhere Farm is helping sponsor a showing of The Blues Brothers this Saturday, August 10th at the Cornucopia Sweet Shoppe around 9 p.m. Join us and see what piglets look like in sunglasses!
PAST SUMMER EVENTS:
Join us for a farm tour Sunday, July 21st from 1 to 4 p.m. You'll be able to tour the fields where your food is grown, hug an Icelandic chicken, scratch a Guinea Hog’s belly, and walk the farm labyrinth lined with stones from Lake Superior, as well as snack on whatever fruit is in season.
Joseph Jenkins Lecture Series: Perennial Agriculture in the Northwoods: Cable Natural History Museum
WEDNESDAY, JULY 24th
Learn how perennial agriculture is helping Elsewhere Farm's resilience as the climate gets more chaotic, and how perennials fit together with market gardens and livestock, like laying hens and pigs, on the South Shore. Owner and proprietor Clare Hintz will share current research at Elsewhere Farm which explores the ecological benefits of perennial production, including benefits for pollinators. There's a berry for every part of our growing season; learn about less common tree and shrub fruits that you can add to your own northern gardens, and taste some products made from these fruits! 7:00 p.m. at the Museum. Sponsored by Henry and Jodi Kingdon. Donations welcome.
Join Clare for dinner and conversation at the Rivers Eatery from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Then see her lecture at the Museum.
