Raw Deal

Join us for an evening with our neighbors, family and friends at the Raw Deal in Menomonie. This is a benefit for Bonnie and Josh, owners of Winnowburrow Farm. Winnowburrow is a small farm in Wheeler, WI. Bonnie specializes in cut flowers, heirloom produce and herbs. She is a passionate seed saver of heirloom veggies and has been farming for the last 5ish years.

Bonnie and Josh have been going through all the steps to buy a farm of their own. They need community support in this endeavor, not only with immediate finances but ongoing support.

We hope to bring the community together to shine awareness on how important it is to support our local farms. Our local farms are the root to our community, and we need to keep those roots strong.

Here is a line up of events for the evening.
