Join fourth-generation organic dairy farmer Inga Witscher for a new season of Around the Farm Table, shining a spotlight on Midwestern farmers and artisan food producers with recipes, stories and a lot of fun.
Season 7 premieres 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3 on Wisconsin Public Television.
Host Inga Witscher travels Wisconsin’s roads to celebrate Wisconsin’s bounty throughout the seasons. In the spring, the Driftless Region takes center stage, with two very different growing situations: an urban greenhouse and a family of homesteaders. In the summer, she shows viewers how to preserve the bright flavors of the harvest – orchard fruit, teas and herbs, and jam – to enjoy any time. Then, stay on track through the cold months with a winter greenhouse and warm snacks for skiers at the American Birkebeiner.
As always, food producers and neighbors join Inga back on the farm to share meals as well as experiences, bringing sustainable farming practices to life. Viewers will settle in by the campfire with real-life cowboys; savor barbecue made from local friends’ products and discover Native foods enjoyed by Wisconsin’s first peoples – both in the past and today.
New episodes of Around the Farm Table air 7:30 p.m. Thursdays beginning Oct. 3. Visit wpt.org for additional broadcast information and full program videos.
