Local Producers Scholarship Winner!

Congratulations to Ian Andrus of Creaking Tree Farm! The farm is entering their 4th growing season, and sells most of their produce though the local food
market and local restaurants. Last summer they began selling greens to the Co-op.

The scholarship will allow the farm to purchase equipment to help their operation be more efficient.

The new equipment will include:

  1.    A small 4 row seeder to effectively plant dense crops like greens and carrots
  2.    A coolbot, which is an electronic device that allows an air conditioner to run at a much lower temperature than normal, to replace an expensive compressor

Look for more news on this project in our upcoming Spring issue of the Blueberry Jam Newsletter.
