Over 2 acres next to Ishpeming High School and Jasperlite Senior Housing which will help expand the Farm-to-School program and agricultural tech program at the high school.

May Tsupros of Partridge Creek Farm says the program will have lasting benefits in the UP for years to come.

“It’s also preparing the next generation of our farmers here in the UP. So, by creating an Ag-tech program, it teaches how to grow at this climate, we are going to be much better suited in years to come to grow our own foods.”
