Sustainable Agriculture Speaker Series:
Thursday, October 25, 2018
Jim Riddle, along with his wife Joyce, are the owners of Blue Fruit Farm located just outside of Winona. Blue Fruit Farm exists as part of the Wiscoy Valley Community Land Cooperative, a 360-acre organically-managed land cooperative with 20 adult members including Jim and Joyce. In the 1980’s Jim and Joyce raised organic vegetables and helped start the Winona Farmers Market. Now, Blue Fruit Farm covers 5 acres of certified organic blueberries, elderberries, aronia berries, black currants, blue plums, honey berries, justaberries, juneberries, and cherry plums. With his strong local connection, Jim offers us his insights on the past, present, and future of agriculture in the greater Winona area.
