On May 31, as I was pulling into the driveway, I noticed a car at the high tunnel. With all three kids in tow, I decided to see what was going on and low and behold, Ryan Pekarek was being interviewed by Channel 8 News for a story about the Farmer’s Market. He did a great job talking about the crops we grow, the work he does, our new CSA, and other local sales. Kelly did a great job with the story and it can be seen at this link: KLKN Channel 8 Video – News, Weather and Sports for Lincoln, NE; KLKNTV.com.
All of this came on the heels of an announcement from Governor Dave Heineman encouraging Nebraskan’s to visit their local farmer’s markets. “Farmers markets help connect produce growers with residents of cities and towns, and provide growers with another outlet to market their fresh produce,” he said. “Nothing compares to the freshness of the produce found at the farmers markets across our state.”
