Join chef Chef Amy Huo of Locavore Mobile Kitchen and The Community Table for a night to celebrate local farmers and local food at Square Roots Farm, just south of Eau Claire.

We will enjoy the beautiful scenery at Square Roots farm with four courses of delicious vegetable-centered cuisine and four wines. All of our ingredients will be sourced from the farm and complimenting ingredients from no more than 60 miles from Square Roots.

About The Community Table:

The Community Table’s Mission is to serve balanced, nutritious meals in a safe, welcoming environment and to connect those in need with existing resources.

TCT also enlightens the public to issues of hunger in our community; and supports efforts of community agencies to increase the self-reliance of individuals and families.

About Square Roots Farm:

Square Roots Farm is a diversified vegetable farm resting on 40 acres just south of Eau Claire in Fall Creek, WI. We produce the best vegetables without the use of synthetic herbicides, pesticides, or insecticides! Our land has been in cover crop and vegetable production since 2014. This is our fifth season growing vegetables in the Chippewa Valley.

About Jake and Bri:

Jake Lau

Like many young aspiring vegetable farmers, Jake didn't grow up on a farm. It wasn't until he was well into a bachelor's degree studying Restoration Ecology at the University of Minnesota he realized his interest in vegetable farming. After graduation, Jake spent five years learning the craft as an apprentice in Connecticut at Fort Hill Farm, in Minnesota at Uproot Farm and in nearby Arkansaw, WI at Hog's Back Farm. Late in 2013, Jake settled back home in the Chippewa Valley and started Square Roots Farm with a plan to produce nutritous fruits and vegetables, using farming practices that protect and nurture the soil as well as the community.

Briana Odegard

Briana's farming experience spans from her birth onto a sheep farm in southwestern Wisconsin, to her teen and college years working on her family's beef farm, to her current role as a vegetable farmer. Her passion for vegetable production was fostered in urban environments on the UW Eau Claire campus and in the Eau Claire Community Garden. She is now welding her long-time love for farming with her knowledge of vegetable production.
