Thanks to the 17 members and guests who made the short trek south of the Twin Cities for a visit to Zweber Farms. Our hosts were member Mary Albrecht, 2016 Sue Zelickson grant winner and Zweber Farms Herdsman and Farmer Emily Zweber. It was a beautiful (if extremely warm) fall day at the farm where we toured the organic milking operation in their more-than-a-century-old barn, met some milk cows and adorable young calves, farm cats and lots of chickens freely roaming around. It's the kind of setting that begs a lot of photos! After our tour they served us Organic Valley cheeses, a delicious beef stew featuring Zweber Farms beef and fragrant bread courtesy of Chef Beth Fisher and French Meadow Bakery.
We were also happy to have 2 students from the South Central College Culinary Program in Mankato join us along with their instructor Lizbeth Kliewer.
Most of us went home with meat and eggs from the farm. Thanks again Zweber Farms for hosting us for a great fall outing. Thank you Lisa Lardy for the great photos!
