November Community Virtual Book Read

Tuesday, December 7

South Dakota State University (SDSU) Extension will be holding it's third Community Book Read over Zoom starting on Nov. 23 with meetings held Tuesday evenings from 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. MT / 7:30-8:30pm CDT. This month's book selection is “The Growing Season: How I Built a New Life – and Saved an American Farm” by Sarah Frey.

The youngest of 21 children, Frey grew up on a struggling farm in southern Illinois. At 15, she started her own fresh produce delivery business out of an old pickup truck. Two years later she took over the family farm and started doing business with the largest grocery retailers in the country. Frey’s story is one of never giving up, negotiating with some of the biggest businesses in the nation and building a company which serves consumers with fresh, healthy products. Frey Farms is the nation’s leading producer of pumpkins, earning Frey the nickname “America’s Pumpkin Queen.”
