We spoke with David Huckfelt in July. (He will be in concert in our barn on August 28.) David has performed benefit concerts for organizations, like Seed Savers Exchange, whose missions share some similarity to Farm Table’s. We asked him why he feels strongly about supporting organizations working to promote local food and farmers.

For David, such farmers are already “five steps more connected” to the land as well as to their communities than most of us are. He sees farmers as serving all of us, nurturing us on the most fundamental human level.

David told us that he has “several friends who determined years ago that the best way to make a stand and a change for a better world was to start growing food for people. Turnip Rock Farm, Bubbling Springs Farm, Seed Savers Exchange, Sister’s Camelot, Grinnell Heritage Farm, Sean Sherman The Sioux Chef—there are hundreds. I love music and know it has a tremendous capacity to lift up the world, but to me the people growing the food, the farmer’s markets, the pizza farms, the food shelf donations, the co-ops: these are some of the true heroes of the revolution.”

We hope you can join us on AUGUST 28 at Hungry Turtle Farm for David Huckfelt’s Barn Concert. Learn more and get tickets for this special evening here: https://farmtablefoundation.salsalabs.org/huckfelt

STAFF PICK: SATURDAY CURDSDAY 
Mike Schut, FTF's Director for Programs and Community Partnerships:

“Not that curds need extra promo here in cheese-happy Wisconsin, but…have you tried the Cosmic Wheel Creamery cheese curds fried in Spotted Cow beer batter? They are the best I’ve ever had! I love knowing that the curds are made just five miles from our restaurant with organic milk from 100% grass-fed cows raised on that same farm. If you need your fried cheese curds fix, come on in…any and all Saturdays!”

Hope to see you tonight at @farmtablefoundationamery for my show “Looking Up.” I’m not sure how many more public events I’ll be going to in the near future as I’m watching the pandemic numbers looking worse on the daily. Ugh. When will this be overrrrr?
•
I chose the name “Looking Up” for a few different reasons, but the main reason is because I started painting more seriously during the early days of the pandemic as a way to be more present; to step away from the screen and to ‘look up’ at the sky and the trees and the beauty in our everyday surroundings. I desperately want to be HERE today, not in the news, not in some future I’ve catastrophised in my mind. This place. With my friends and family. Knowing it can all change tomorrow, I want to LOOK UP and see the now.
