Grass is Greener Gardens


Rich Horbaczewski & Jackie Gennett are Chicago natives who moved from the city to greener pastures and became farmers ten years ago. The couple raises organic vegetables as well as fodder for the farm’s sheep, goats, chickens, and turkeys on 130 seasonally rotated acres. In addition to fresh vegetables and eggs from happy hens, the Grass is Greener Market tent includes pickles, preserves, sauces and fermented foods like sauerkraut. Rich and Jackie are the proprietors of Bushel & Peck’s Local Market, a restaurant, food processing kitchen and shop in Beloit, where they bring food and community together. They welcome summer visitors and campers to the farm, and host Beloit College students & graduates who intern there while learning sustainable, organic farming and best practices in animal husbandry. Check their website for other offerings and events.
