Earlier this summer, market vendors Joseph & Mandy Kern were featured on the Farmers Market Coalition website. Joe & Mandy own Our Seven Acres near Madison and also operate a local CSA. In addition to selling at our Emporia market, Mandy serveson our board of directors and facilitates the Veggie Power Club for Kids with the Southern Lyon County FFA chapter. The Kern's hosted two farm tours earlier this summer, where market shoppers were able to learn about their growing techniques inside two high tunnels & enjoy their lively goats & guinea hens. They will also host a high tunnel tour this fall, in conjunction with our High Tunnel Workshop (October 3 & 5). We're grateful for the Kern's hard work & dedication to local food production!
