organic farmers team upScott and Megan Lester have partnered with Ted and Julia Wycall to open Whitefish Stage Organic Farms, a 65-acre property that is being cultivated for the upcoming summer. The families have been working vigilantly since January to prepare the farm, which will offer a wide variety of vegetables, from eggplant, peppers, broccoli and kale to carrots, beets, radishes and potatoes.

“It’s progressing really good and coming together faster than I thought it would,” Megan Lester said.

The families hope to attract at least 100 members who sign up for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares this summer.
