Snug Haven Farm Fundraiser

Though we missed our fathers on Fathers' Day, we managed to make the most of the day with a trip to one of the most beautiful Wisconsin farms I've ever visited, for a fundraiser to help pay the medical bills of one of the farm owners, who has chronic Lyme's Disease.



The farm is Snug Haven Farm, in Belleville, Wisconsin, which is reputed for having the most delicious overwintered spinach anyone has ever tasted.  I can attest to this.

So many local restaurants and vendors pitched in to help support the event, providing the awesome food and items for the silent auction and live music and entertainment:

We ate like queens and kings: Portabella Mushroom Burgers with Arugula Pesto and Homemade Ketchup from Mermaid Cafe, Potato Salad from L'Etoile, Ravioli Salad from Madison Club, Rhubarb Lemonade from Graze, and Apple Strawberry Bars from Honey Bee Bakery:

And we even got to spend the morning with old friends, like DocDirD, who was a joy to be with despite being sick as a dog:

These are the kind of events that make the Madison food community feel like home.
If anybody would still like to be donate to the cause, please make checks out to Judy Hageman and send to 1170 Hageman Rd., Belleville, WI 53508, Call: (608) 424.3296 or Email: spinach@snughavenfarm.com.
