News from Garfield Farm
CAMPTON HILLS, IL: On Sunday, May 3, 2009 at 2 p.m., Garfield Farm Museum has invited Farmer Tim Fuller to give a Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) Farm lecture. The talk will be centered around organic and CSA farming and what it means today. It will be an open forum for anyone with questions or for those just curious about this new trend in food production. For those wishing to hear and see more, the lecture will conclude with an invitation to see the farming in action with a short tour of Mr. Fuller's CSA fields and what steps he takes to keep his produce as organic as possible.
Tim Fuller farms his CSA farm, Erehwon Farm, on leased land from
Garfield Farm Museum and is a partner of Heritage Prairie Market; a
local market and educational center which strives to help bring
visitors closer to nature and the land; to enhance the total food
experience from seed starting to eating, farm to table; and to do so in
a way that fits with your life-style.
Garfield Farm Museum is located 5 miles west of Geneva, IL, off of Illinois Rt. 38 on Garfield Road. Garfield Farm is a former historically intact 1840s prairie farmstead and teamster inn that is being restored as a working 1840s farm.
