Hi, my name is Connie Landis Fisk. Welcome to my blog!
I am originally from Central Oregon and received my BS in Nutrition and Food Management and my MS in Food Science & Technology and Horticulture from Oregon State University (Go Beavers!). For five and a half years I held a statewide Extension position working with muscadine grape growers in North Carolina where I completed my PhD in Horticultural Science (Go Wolfpack!). I have experience in fruit and vegetable, dairy, and meat production and processing, quality assurance, catering, and teaching, both face-to-face and online.
In my current position as an Extension Educator for UNL (Go Big Red!) I teach youth and adults how to grow, handle, and market fruits and vegetables in the eight counties surrounding Omaha and Lincoln.
On this blog I will share recommendations for small-scale food production in Eastern Nebraska, success stories from local producers, musings on the food system and food policy issues, and even some of my favorite recipes to use up the season’s bounty.
Follow me on Twitter (https://twitter.com/connie_fisk) where I share timely production recommendations, information about upcoming events, and links to research-based web resources.
Thanks for stopping by!
