Come watch the best of the best butchers and fishmongers compete. While here, you’ll be entered to win a $50 Whole Foods Market gift card. Must be present to win.

Meet David of W & M Land Corp, after 25 years in manufacturing, David decided to leave the insanity of corporate culture and jump into a totally different type of insanity running an organic nursery. He now enjoys full time peasantry, trading meetings for planting, business reports for organic certification documentation and people management for integrated pest management. At least now he can always claim his business is growing.

 

W&M Land Corp Organic Nursery grows and supplies Whole Foods Market Kildeer with organic plants, grown on their small farm in Woodstock, Illinois.

 

David will be out taking questions and giving advice to help get your spring garden prepped and ready to go!
