Organic, Sustainable Farming Trolley Tour July 20

All aboard! The Door County Environmental Council is inviting the public on a journey through organic, sustainable farming in Door County. On July 20, the Door County Trolley will visit Waseda Farms, Emerald Acres Farm, and the Peninsular Agricultural Research Station.

Jeff Lutsey of Waseda Farms will walk attendees through the world-renowned Temple Grandin Cattle Handling System and demonstrate how they raise organic Black Angus beef, heritage Berkshire pork, and chickens for meat and eggs.

Valerie and David Boyarski of Emerald Acres Farm will explain their process of growing organic vegetables, herbs and fruit and show how a CSA works. They will also showcase their purebred Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats and heritage chickens.

Matt Stasiak and John Bamberg of the Peninsular Research Station will highlight the critical balance between the use of pesticides and the control of invasive insects such as the spotted wing drosophila (SWD).

Did you know Door County houses the largest collection of wild and cultivated potato species? The Peninsular Research Station will also cover this incredible collection and explain its importance.

The Trolley Tour will also take visitors to Otumba Park, where they will enjoy a box lunch supplied by Get Real Café and Organic Valley, featuring locally grown organic produce and dairy.

The cost is $12 per person. Two tours will leave the Pick N Save parking lot at 9 am. Seating is limited. For more details, to secure a seat, and reserve your lunch choice, log onto or call 920.743.6003.
