Celebrating Local Farmers

Posted on | December 8, 2010 | 4 Comments

Yesterday when I checked my mailbox, I saw the winter edition of Edible Madison magazine nestled among the usual holiday ads and credit card applications. I was excited not only to curl up with the magazine and feast on food-related articles, but also to take a peek at the finished product of the feature I wrote about John and Dorothy Priske of Fountain Prairie Inn and Farms. To write the article, I had a great time hanging out with the Priskes on a fall Saturday at the Dane County Farmer’s Market, where they sell grass-fed beef and pork. I also drove out to their beautiful farm in Fall River, Wisconsin, where they raise Highland cattle, operate a bed and breakfast, and recently erected a wind turbine on site. Since I met with them in September, the Priskes have been named Wisconsin Conservation Farmers of the Year by the Wisconsin Land and Water Conservation Association–an honor well deserved.

    Just read the article … sounds like a fairy tale–how wonderful to know it’s all actually true. If only all farms operated this way, the world would be a better place.
