The Northeast Iowa Food and Farm Network will be holding its July gathering at Kymar Acres between Waukon and Decorah Sunday, July 16, beginning at 4 p.m. The farm is located at 2168 Winnmakee Road, Waukon, and the event will include a farm tour and potluck meal. Attendees are asked to bring a dish to pass and also RSVP in order to help the host facility prepare for visitors. RSVPs can be confirmed by contacting Kayla Koether at 563-382-2949 or at koether@iastate.edu.

Kymar Acres was started by Kyle and Mari Holthaus in 1998, and their children, Teddy and Violet, help on the farm. In 2008, Mari’s sister, Anna, joined the operation. Kymar grows four acres of vegetables and herbs, sold by special order and at four farmers markets.

Their licensed kitchen, “the galley,” produces jams, pickles, frozen vegetables and baked goods. See the farm’s specialty vegetable implements and learn what it takes to have a licensed kitchen facility.

The Northeast Iowa Food and Farm Network provides opportunities for local food farmers and friends to gather to make connections, find common interests, collaborate and learn together. All are welcome to attend to learn more.
