Grandpa Tiny’s Farm Hosts Interseeding ‘Show and Tell’ July 11


This event will take place along the banks of the Dead Creek in Frankenmuth, right in the heart of the Cass River Watershed, using CISCO Farm seeds from Indianapolis.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT


Blue Water and Saginaw County Conservation Districts have chosen Grandpa Tiny’s Farm in Frankenmuth as the site of their “INTERSEED IT” Field Demo Day on Wednesday, July 11.

Running from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., this free event will show off the equipment, methods, and programs available to make interseeding a reality. Interseeding can help establish cover crops in Michigan, which is generally difficult due to the climate and other factors. But when done correctly, cover crops can help build soil health, weed control and forage.

This event will take place along the banks of the Dead Creek in Frankenmuth, right in the heart of the Cass River Watershed, using CISCO Farm seeds from Indianapolis.

To honor the namesake of the farm, this seed will be named after William “Tiny” Zehnder, who with his wife Dorothy, founded the Bavarian Inn Restaurant, where Dorothy at 96 years young continues to work six days a week to this day. Grandpa Tiny’s Farm is owned by the William and Dorothy Zehnder Foundation.

A Frankenmuth Chicken lunch will be provided to the first 100 RSVPs at www.interseed.eventbrite.com.

Grandpa Tiny’s Farm is located at 7775 Weiss Street in Frankenmuth. Learn more about the farm at www.grandpatinysfarm.com.
