Mr. Xiong has been farming for nearly 20 years in Wisconsin. His care for his family, land and community is evident in all he does. Chia shared a home cooked meal with me in the middle of the fields before touring his land on the day I dropped by.

Working six days a week farming with his sister, brothers-in-law, uncles, and nephews, Mr.Xiong supplies several Asian restaurants and brings his delicious food to several farmers markets in the area in addition to the SSFM. Chia tells me that at the end of the week, whatever he isn’t able to sell is donated to his local church.

Stop by the market to show Mr. Xiong your support, and let him know how much all of his hard work in our community is appreciated!

See you at the market!
