Event Details

Grower/Business Spotlight: Funks Grove Heritage Fruits & Grains. Presenter: Jeff Hake, Funks Grove Heritage Fruits & Grains

Farmers Katie Funk, Jeff Hake, and Jonathan Funk have developed a value-added product line using fruits and grains from their own farm just south of Bloomington. The farm is just a few years old, but is built off the tradition and resources of the family’s long-standing business, Funks Grove Pure Maple Sirup. Jeff Hake will discuss those efforts and the next plans for the farm, including how they tie into opportunities and issues created by policy, regulations, larger markets, the COVID-19 pandemic, and climate change.
