CIAS 25th Anniversary Barn Dance – June 27

CIAS is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2014, and we’re throwing a celebratory barn dance at Schuster’s Farm in Deerfield on June 27. We hope that past and present friends of CIAS, and everyone who supports sustainable food and farms, will join us for this memorable evening.

Thirsty Roots will play toe-tapping barn dance music, including both traditional and original tunes. In addition to dancing, the evening will feature refreshments, a silent auction and the beauty of our host farm.

The event will take place from 7:00-10:30pm; dancing starts at 7:30pm. Tickets cost $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Kids’ tickets (ages 5-12) cost $5 in advance or at the door, and children under 5 attend for free. Advance tickets are available at or at the CIAS office (call 608-262-8018 or email for hours). We can not accept credit cards at the dance.

All proceeds from this barn dance will benefit CIAS research, outreach and education on sustainable agriculture, and will ultimately further our vision of sustainable farms and food systems that contribute to ecological, economic and social well-being.

CIAS wishes to thank our hosts, Don and Theresa Schuster, for their generous hospitality. Schuster’s Farm is located at 1326 Hwy 12/18 in Deerfield.
