If the Walls Could Talk

If the Walls Could Talk

If the walls could talk at Dr. Woodchuck’s Auction Services in Scales Mound, IL they’d have a lot to say – and in more ways than one. But then, this auction house is more than just what meets the auction attendee’s eye of eclectic collections. Dr. Woodchuck’s is not only a very unique auction house on one level but also the Allan Opera House on another – on the second floor to be exact.

Savings Incentive Program

Twenty beginning farmers recently graduated from Practical Farmers of Iowa’s Savings Incentive Program. Together, these farmers – who became the second class to graduate from the program – saved $47,000 to put toward building capital on their farms. The program matched their savings, for a total of $94,000 to be invested into Iowa farm businesses. This, combined with the $40,000 invested with the first graduating class in spring 2013, brings the total money invested into beginning farm businesses by the Savings Incentive Program to $134,000.

Now’s the Time to Sign Up for a CSA

Now’s the Time to Sign Up for a CSA

Iowa’s vegetable farmers have already been digging into preparations for summer’s bounty of fresh greens and juicy tomatoes. Many of these farmers run Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) businesses that let you subscribe for a regular (usually weekly) share of fresh vegetables, herbs, and fruit. With spring in the air, now is the perfect time to join a CSA near you.

Local Farmers’ Markets

Spring is here and so are the Farmers’ Markets. Farmers’ Markets support small family farms by providing a viable place for them to sell their farm-fresh produce directly to the consumer and provides a festive, educational and beneficial event. Some, if not most, also feature arts and crafts and many feature bedding plants that you can use to start your own gardens.
