Select Media Coverage

A piece titled "Fresh from the Farm" about Tim Magner and camp in the Loyola Academy magazine (page 4 & 5). A guest article in 2017 on Good Food on Every Table and also in 2016 on Good Food on Every Table, a piece on Farm Camps in Chicago Crain's Magazine and a guest post in the nationally acclaimed Fed Up with Lunch.

The Mike Nowak (radio) Show interviewed us and Rob Gardner of The Local Beet gave us a shout-out in his Good Food Fest Wrap-up. We were featured on WGN TV Mid-day News. Note: for the TV gig we borrowed a couple things from awesome Chicago friends, e.g. microgreens from local food innovator The Urban Canopy and the flat of mint from The Kilbourn Park Organic GreenhouseGood Food on Every Table featured an article on Farm Camp .

p.s. We're thrilled to be supporting members of the Chicagoland coalition of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). We love the local 'Band of Farmers.'
