Today’s Traverse City Record-Eagle carries a story by Heather Durocher about Jen and Nic Welty and the enthusiasm for farming and farm-to-table agriculture they bring to us every day.

“It was a natural fit, then, for Jen and Nic, also an OSU graduate, to find themselves at what they call a “value-added agriculture farm.” Following internships at Black Star Farms, working in its vineyard and tasting room “and everywhere else,” Jen decided to further her education in agriculture by attending graduate school. Ultimately, she’d return with Nic and her now 8-year-old daughter to Leelanau County.”

We’re proud to have Jen and Nic on the Black Star team!
