Wisconsin celery grower starts Midwest harvest
Trembling Prairie Farms Inc., Markesan, Wis., is harvesting celery through the first week of October.
The farm is a grower-partner of Alsum Farm & Produce, a Friesland, Wis., grower of potatoes and other vegetables.
Trembling Prairie is in its eighth season as a celery grower, according to a news release, with its crop going to Midwest retailers and foodservice operators. The company grows celery on 45 acres.
Starting July 22, Trembling Prairie offers celery in these packs:
- 24-count sleeved;
- 30-count naked or sleeved;
- 36-count naked or sleeved; and
- 18-count celery hearts.
“We’re happy to be able to bring our locally grown Wisconsin Celery to the market,” John Bobek, farmer and owner of Trembling Prairie Farms, said in the release. “Whether paired with peanut butter as a healthy kid-friendly snack, chopped in a salad for an outdoor gathering or is the key ingredient for the latest juicing craze that’s boosted celery to new heights, Wisconsin Celery offers a fresh taste for consumers looking for locally grown.”
