UW-Madison Highlights Partnership with Stoney Acres Farm
Posted September 2016
Kat Becker and Tony Schultz, who own and operate Stoney Acres Farm in Marathon County, are featured in a UW-Madison campaign to show how partnerships with citizens and businesses are furthering the Wisconsin Idea in each of the state’s 72 counties.
Kat and Tony have long-standing ties to CIAS. Both serve on the CIAS Citizens Advisory Council, which meets twice a year to inform our research and outreach priorities. Additionally, Kat worked with CIAS while pursuing her graduate degree.
As a farmer at Stoney Acres, UW–Madison alumnus Tony Schultz was invited to a panel discussion where he and others — including a Nobel Prize winner — were asked to answer one question: What does it mean to eat well?
The panel discussion mentioned here was a CIAS event that launched our 25th anniversary celebration in 2014. You can read Tony’s answer to the question at the Stoney Acres Farm website. Tony was joined on the panel by pasture beef producer Jim Munsch, Jonathan Patz of the UW-Madison Global Health Institute, Monica White of the Department of Community and Environmental Sociology, and legendary Madison chef Odessa Piper, whose remarks can be read here.
