Meet Our Farmers at Seward Co-op’s CSA Fair

Connect with the people who grow and harvest our food. Seward Co-op is welcoming farmers and vendors to Seward Co-op Creamery Café for our 18th annual CSA Fair.

Join us for farmer talks, food samples, a raffle, and face time with local growers 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. Chat with representatives from local farms (see full list of farmers to the left) about their community supported agriculture (CSA) shares and learn how you can support our local food growers. Spend more time with our growers during farmer happy hour 2-6 p.m. here at the café. We’ll have the patio set up!

Farmer Talks
11:30 a.m. Emily, Shared Ground Farmers’ Cooperative
12:30 p.m. Naima Dhore, Somali-American farmer who grows certified organic vegetables

The event is kid-friendly. Midwest Food Connection will be offering child-focused programming throughout the fair. Kids are welcome to explore the fair and plant a seedling with MFC!

Members of the co-op’s board of directors will be at the CSA Fair welcome table. Stop by and hear about their work on behalf of co-op owners!
