ABOUT THE ARTIST

Michelle Moss Amery has been dear to our hearts my entire life. My parents grew up in this great town, and after my family moved out of state we have traveled back nearly every year to visit family and enjoy all Amery has to offer. We’ve had the delight to experience the Fall Festival - complete with waving to our family in the parade, cheese curds, music, craft fair and even a helicopter ride! Now that I have my own family we ask the kids each year what they want to do in the summer and the first and most enthusiastic answer is- “GO TO AMERY!” They thoroughly enjoy the lakes swimming, boating, water skiing, tubing, kayaking, paddle boating, and of course - fishing. I’m proud to say each of my kids has learned to water ski on Pike Lake - at sunset even! Another requirement of each trip is to visit Ellie’s for some phenomenal ice cream! We also enjoy the Farmers Market for the best flowers around, delicious veggies and even a pony ride!! Amery has gifted our family with cherished memories and quality time together for generations, and we don’t plan on stopping the tradition! Michelle Moss

BACK TO OUR ROOTS:

America Goes Native Most people, even gardeners, have a hard time visualizing life underground. It’s not a place we ever see, taste or smell, though ultimately, it turns out to be the genesis of life for almost everything we eat.

European pioneers reported soil depths of eight feet in early years of settlement. This was our original “wealth”, drew immigrants looking to settle and farm and became America’s bread basket fueling the post World War II economy.

Just inside Farm Table Restaurant in Amery is an intricate mural painted by David Markson of River Falls. The scene depicts various plants above and below ground; the extent of their reach for sun and depth of their roots’ penetration in earth.

That soil, built over centuries by vast Bison herds storming the land, stimulated root growth and created bio-diverse plant communities. As prairie plants thrived, so did insects, birds, reptiles, and mammals.

It’s a handsome scene, florid and brimming with life. And because some plants show much greater root penetration, it also makes a strong statement about the emerging science of soil health: millions of species of bacteria, protozoa, fungi, enzymes — along with plant roots — interacting in a frenzy of collaboration.

12

The mural makes a profound point: the deeper a plant’s roots, the more active the underground biome, the healthier that plant, the more resistant it is to disease, the more completely rain-water can infiltrate, and, the more nutrient dense the food it produces. Once that underground micro-biome becomes fully networked — the greater soil’s overall resilience — the more diverse, interconnected and fully realized is the bio-sphere above ground where human beings and the rest of the animal kingdom benefit. The ultimate in deep American roots were vast prairies that once dominated America’s Middle West.

Unfortunately, that prairie legacy is now greatly diminished. As science has thoroughly documented, the erosive forces of agriculture have led to gargantuan runoffs of minerals, farm chemicals and organic matter — clogging rivers, deadening a large portion of the Mississippi Delta in Louisiana, and importantly, leaving behind thin substrates of dirt where prairies once thrived. America is engendering a different soil legacy today: cropping systems that rely on massive inputs of synthetic fertilizers and toxic herbicides which result in extremely poor landscape function during a time of major climate disruption. It’s a double jeopardy: poor soil health requires more chemicals but that reliance on short-term inputs exposes soil to further stress at a time when climate instability demands stronger underground networks and resilience. The resulting imbalances are exacting a heavy toll on crucial animal species, from pollinators and insects to birds and fish and mammals. The Center for Biological Diversity estimates that more than a half a million species are

entering critical stages of decline on the route to extinction. All this is driving gardeners and homeowners, corporations, non-profits, farmers and ranchers to return to “roots” because it’s a win-win-win: improving the soil micro-biome — growing more and deeper roots — removes carbon from the atmosphere and stores it in stable underground networks, fosters nutrient density in foods, and increases soil’s capacity to handle drought, heavy rain and temperature extremes. Happily, the techniques and knowledge of how to build your own prairie, install a pollinator garden, buffer rain water runoff or deploy regenerative farming strategies are more widely accessible than ever. And, right here in Amery there are wonderful examples of what can be achieved on farms and homesteads through enlightened land management.

PRAIRIE RESTORATION Butch and Kathy Ryan live on the edge of Amery and for several decades have planted trees and established a 2-acre prairie near what was once the city dump. “It’s a hobby that’s gotten a little out of hand”, admits Butch. Butch takes leftover Native plants from Dragonfly Gardens, the ones that might not successfully over-winter, and squeezes them into expanding “prairie” openings of his tree canopy. He also buys seed from Prairie Moon Nursery in Winona and throws them out onto the snow during winter. The seeding technique is critical for germination: the seed coats require a freezethaw cycle — “scarification” and “stratification” — in order to hatch out successfully, releasing their determined packet of genetic material. Butch’s motivation for putting down all these roots is not only ecological; he and Kathy revel in the beauty of prairie flowers and the peacefulness of a woodland setting. And, when it comes to


management, Butch takes pride in the simplicity of it all: “People ask what I like about having this kind of yard. It’s because when it comes time to mow, all I do is light a match.” Every year the prairie comes back richer, more diverse and more beautiful. But, it has been an ongoing project: one that requires observation and experimentation. Butch has learned from mistakes as much as success, big bluestem (too large, hides flowers) vs little bluestem (better size, beautiful plant), and steered the prairie toward what he knows will work. As with all Native plantings, the whole is greater than its sum of parts: the prairie patches are beautiful, resilient, and a wonderful place for butterflies and pollinators, but also, more than ever, human beings.

ROTATIONAL GRAZING Bob Wuellner grew up on a dairy farm near Pierz, Minnesota and learned cows young, from milking to feeding to making hay. Now in his ‘50s, what Bob didn’t know until a few years ago, is the impact cows can have on soil health and pasture development — for better or worse. Wuellner manages grazing operations at the Hungry Turtle Farm west of Amery on the Apple River. The training he received with Spencer Smith of the Savory Institute revolutionized the way Bob plans and executes his grazing operations. And it’s all about maximizing pasture roots. The science of rotational grazing has swept the nation thanks to organizations like the Savory Institute, Grassworks and Wisconsin’s own Northwest Graziers Network. Gabe Brown a North Dakota rancher and many others are achieving eye-popping results, growing soil organic matter and increasing water infiltration rates while pounding pastures with hundreds of cattle. The key to rotational grazing is to hit pastures hard and fast with as many animals as possible, then move on to other paddocks, allowing that pasture time to recover and regrow. Such a technique simulates the Bison herds that created America’s prairie lands over thousands of years. The animals slobber, poop, pee and trample their way around, and all of it stimulates root growth in the myriad grasses and forbs that populate the land. The greater the bio-diversity, the richer the underground network of bacteria, enzymes and fungi tying it all together. Better nutrition for the cattle, better water infiltration, faster pasture recovery, it all adds up to a healthier ecology on the farm — and healthier beef for consumers. As Mr. Wuellner can attest, it also makes a great home for heritage Galloway cattle, who just want a good set of grass every day.

PUBLIC-PRIVATE LAND PARTNERSHIPS Blackbrook Farm owners James Dodge and Ayla Graden grow organic vegetables and raise hogs, chicken and beef — and three young children — at their 100-acre property bordering Parker Creek, south of Amery. Previous owners of the property had initiated, through the US Fish and Wildlife Service

(USFWS), a partnership that broke up and removed agricultural tile that sped water off the property into adjacent Parker Creek. They also raised the level of a culvert draining farmland on 30th Avenue. The resulting levee impounds water year-round on 10 acres, and provides abundant habitat for water-loving species like wood ducks, frogs and mustelids. A couple of years later, the USFWS returned to the property, now owned by James and Ayla, with a proposal in hand: the Service would provide funding for removal of invasive woodland species on the property’s extensive hillsides and seed them down to Native plants to move the affected area toward oak savanna. In exchange, James and Ayla agreed to contribute labor for clean up and to keep brush down by using a herd of Scottish Highlanders to graze and trample any returning invasives. Using cattle to transition and transform landscapes is a tried and true management technique. Even in designated Natural Areas, the State of Wisconsin considers ruminant grazing an effective tool for creating biodiversity, stabilizing highly erodible land and building overall soil and habitat health. There are challenges to bringing animal herds to public lands: extensive protocols for safeguarding visitors, ensuring animal welfare and requiring multiple bidders to provide contract integrity. Nonetheless, as has been clear for decades, grazing of public land provides massive benefits at a fraction of the cost — and risks — of tools such as herbicides and controlled burns. Today, Blackbrook Farm features a host wellfunctioning eco-types: a pothole pond system that keeps water year around, an emerging oak savannah that provides habitat for native plants, birds and pollinators, and a working farm that produces food for hundreds of customers while maintaining soil health. It’s a credit to sound land management that publicprivate partnerships can achieve results that each individually cannot. For James and Ayla, it’s a partnership that will pay dividends into the future in terms of soil health and helping to stave off the worst of a changing climate for their children.

NATIVE PLANTINGS Dragonfly Gardens in Amery is a classic Mom and Pop garden center, setting out hanging baskets, patio planters and a wealth of floriculture — classic, except one thing: Dragonfly happens to be one of the largest producers of Native plants and shrubs in western Wisconsin. Native plants are defined as species that occur naturally within an eco-system, whether a woodland or prairie or wetland. They are in effect “wild” though with modern techniques they can be cultivated. Hans Klug heads up the effort at Dragonfly, germinating full trays of over 100 species, using a variety of tricks — freezing, refrigerating, soaking, floating, drying — whatever it takes to make those seeds respond as if Nature were calling. Native plants grow

slowly but put down roots, really deep roots, that have evolved over aeons to collaborate with the micro-biome in highly productive ways. Native plants are best deployed in community groups, sometimes called guilds — ones which are not only beautiful for their variety of leaf shapes, color, flowers and growth habit, but also in their pursuit of larger causes: filtering impurities from water, feeding pollinators during shoulder seasons, increasing soil organic matter to enhance rain infiltration. Native plants are exploding in popularity for their aesthetic qualities, ease of care once established, and their effectiveness in curing landscape challenges — buffering strips of land between clashing uses, attracting beneficial insects and pollinators, enhancing the aesthetics of land transitions. School and corporate campuses, public parks, recreational trails, lake associations, homeowners, farmers — the list of customer-types at Dragonfly is long and growing. A typical Native plant order can range above $1,000 and involve many hundreds of specimens. Neighboring counties in Northwest Wisconsin promote “Habitat Collections” designed by Klug — whole flats of plants designed to create unique pollinator, woodland edge or prairie environments — and host locations where the plant trays are distributed to residents. Roots matter, as the mural at Farm Table posits — the deeper, the better. And they are more important than ever in the context of climate disruption, soil degradation and declining nutrient levels in food. Amery area homeowners, farmers and businesses are at the vanguard of rebuilding soil health by making important interventions in land management — enhancing resilience, building bio-diversity and growing nutrient dense foods — all by dint of figuring out which plants to grow where and how grazing animals can help. The time is ripe to rethink how life underground impacts the life above ground, and why it matters for all of us to get it right.

Gluten Free French Bread

BY MARIE KNUTSON

Prep 30 minutes - Bake 45 minutes - Ready 1 hour and 15 minutes INGREDIENTS: 2 cups white rice flour 1 cup tapioca flour 1 TBL xanthan gum 1 1/2 tsp salt 2 tsp powdered egg substitute (optional) 1 TBL butter, melted (optional for brushing)

1 1/2 cups lukewarm water (90 to 104 degrees F) 2 TBL fast rise yeast 2 TBL butter 3 egg whites, beaten slightly 1 tsp cider vinegar 2 TBL sugar

DIRECTIONS: 1. In the bowl of a heavy-duty mixer, place flours, xanthan gum, salt, and egg substitute. Blend with mixer on low. 2. In a small bowl, dissolve sugar in water and add yeast. 3. Wait until the yeast mixture foams slightly, then blend into the dry ingredients. 4. Add butter, egg whites, and vinegar. Beat on high for 3 minutes. 5. To form loaves, spoon dough onto greased and cornmeal dusted cookie sheets in two long French loaf shapes or spoon onto a special greased and cornmeal dusted French bread pan (works best). 6. Slash diagonally every few inches. If desired, brush with melted butter. 7. Cover the dough and let rise in a warm place until doubles in bulk, 20 to 25 minutes. 8. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake until internal temperature reaches 210 degrees, approximately 40 to 45 minutes. 9. Remove from pan to cool. 10. Any leftovers freeze well.

Marie says, “everyone who eats this bread just loves it, including my husband, Jim! No one can ever tell it is gluten-free!”

Authentic Amery-Area Farm:

Red Clover Herbal Apothecary Farm

NANCY GRAEDEN Owner and ORGANIC FARMER I spent my youth outside on a small farm surrounded by woods, wild plants, animals and a meandering creek. This created a strong life-long foundation with the natural world. As an adult I immersed myself in the study of ‘Western Clinical Herbalism’ and a deep reverence for the intelligence of plants and the part their gifts play in our health and well-being evolved. Red Clover Herbal Apothecary Farm was born out of this understanding, now going on it’s 8th year.

ANNUAL PLANT SALE May 15 & 16 10 am - 3 pm

We are a certified organic farm, growing over 50 kinds of medicinal herbs and wild harvesting another 20 herbs from the land. We take seriously our responsibility in caring for this piece of earth and put into practice sustainable farming methods. This includes planting diversity, crop rotation, companion planting, using green manure cover crops, limiting tillage, leaving no bare soil, seed saving, bee keeping (by Beez Kneez) and more. No toxic chemicals will ever be used anywhere on our farm. Instead we strive to work with nature, not against it, by building healthy soils that produce healthy plants that contribute to the health of people. Using plants for health and well being is not new. The original pharmacopoeia’s consisted mostly of plants that were used as medicines. Herbal plants need to be valued again for their intelligence and the gifts they offer us in supporting our health and well being, just as good whole foods are. All of us somewhere in our families ancestry had relatives who collected herbs, be it berries, flowers, barks, roots, etc. They knew how to bring down a fever, soothe a sore throat, stop diarrhea, staunch bleeding, and more, out of necessity. Here at Red Clover Herbal Apothecary Farm we make hand crafted high quality herbal products from the herbs we grow including teas, salves, extracts, elixirs, CBD oils and more. We begin germinating seeds in the green house in early March and plant them out mid to late May. We harvest the herbs as needed throughout the growing season once there is enough foliage on the plant to support growth. We limit these harvests to less than one-third of the plant so it keeps growing and producing more foliage. Once the herbs are harvested, they immediately go into our commercial kitchen on the farm. If we are going to use them for herbal teas, they go on the drying racks. If we are going

to make a plant extract (tincture) out of them, they immediately get chopped up and put in a glass jar with alcohol poured over them and stored on a dark shelf for a minimum of 4 weeks. Alcohol pulls a wide range of beneficial properties (phytochemicals) out of the herbs that have healing potential for our bodies. Alcohol is also an excellent preservative so these extracts are good for 5-7 years. We do not willy nilly just throw herbs together but use our educational background in ‘Western Clinical Herbalism’ and years of experience to make a variety of herbal products. These range from extracts that promote a good nights sleep, ease anxiety, support and building a strong immune system, gently help the liver detox, support optimal brain function and more. Our annual plant sale on the farm this year is May 15th and 16th from 10am-3pm. We also offer common sense seasonal CSA herbal shares that contribute to our wellbeing as we transition from one season to the next. You can find out more about Red Clover Herbal Apothecary Farm here www.redcloverapothecary.com Amery and the surrounding area is rich with farmers practicing sustainable and regenerative farming methods – Beez Kneez, Blackbrook Farm, Bull Brook Keep Farm, Cylon Rolling Acres, Hungry Turtle Farm, L. T. D. Farm, Northwoods Mushrooms, Pike Hole Family Farm, Sweet Top Farm, Threshing Table Farm, Turnip Rock Farm/Cosmic Wheel Creamery and Whetstone Farm. These farms offer up certified organic vegetables, pastured pork, grass fed-grass finished beef, grass fed-grass finished lamb, organic pastured chickens, artisan cheese from grass fed-grass finished cows, pastured raised goat meat, organic mushrooms and local honey.
