2018 LFWF GRANT RECIPIENT

Christi Janssen of C&C High Tunnel Farms

Meet Christi Janssen of C & C High Tunnel Farm and recipient of the 2018 Local Food Works grant. Christi applied as a representative of the winter's farmer's market and Salina farmer's market.

Christi's main objective for using the grant funds is to increase awareness of both markets through new and  improved marketing and publicity. 


Visit her Tuesdays at the Salina Field House from 4-7 this winter (thru Dec 2018) and stay tuned for updates from Christi Janssen.  Christi will be giving a presentation on her experience Dec 2019.

Tyler Gallagher, chef and owner of Seraphim Bread, will be receiving 1,000.00 towards a new awning. The awning is the first step toward outdoor patio seating at his restaurant and will also help improve street visibility. We are proud to have Seraphim, an artisan bakery and bistro, in downtown Salina. They are open Tuesday-Saturday from 7am-3pm and Sunday from 7am-Noon at 228C South Santa Fe Ave in Salina.

Teresa and her husband Larry Brundgridge, farmers out of Concordia, KS, are active in the Salina market and are brimming with excitement and ideas. Teresa and Larry will be putting the 1,000.00 grant towards completing their produce washing packing facility - essential to be able to work year-round. Country Home Berries provides strawberries, blackberries, watermelon, tomatoes, sweet corn and much more produce - and is looking to expand! Their fresh fruit and vegetables are available at Prairieland Market in Salina and during the summer months they can be found at: The Salina Farmer's Market on Saturday at Waters True Value as well as at the 9th Street Farmer's Market (next to the Dairy Queen) on Fridays. They also sell their produce at Concordia Farmer's Market on Thursdays and melons to Kiers Grocery Store in Clay Center.

 

A huge thank you to the Thelander family of Thelanders' Acme Farm who was instrumental in applying to the Bayer Grant on behalf of the Local Food Works Foundation. Because of Kellie, The Local Food Works Foundation was able to award two additional grants this year to: Tyler Gallagher of Seraphim Bread and Teresa Brundgridge of Country Home Berries.
