Positive experiences with the Zilke Vegetable Farm
By: Sarah Smith (Nov 12, 2009)
The Zilke Vegetable Farm is a new project by Tom and Vicky Zilke that has brought a bounty of colorful produce to our Downtown Ypsilanti Farmers' Market. As the manager of this market, I greatly appreciated being able to welcome a new grower and his family to sell their home grown goods in our downtown region. The mission of our market is to help to bring better access to healthy foods to our community. The Zilkes' help to do this in an extraordinary way with their thoughtfully grown produce that includes delicious broccoli, peppers, tomatoes and much more. They continually try to think outside of the box in order to reach their customers, creatively constructing things like pre-packed quart containers of all produce needed for making salsa.
I was fortunate to be able to visit the Zilke Vegetable Farm and was impressed with the organized fields, the maintained vegetables, and the future vision of growing their capacity that Tom and Vicky both shared with me. The Zilkes' are helping our community fill the need for new farmers that pay careful attention to the way their food is grown.
