    The most fun I have ever had was going to Costa Rica with the Rushford-Peterson Spanish Club. Not one picture can showcase the beauty and diversity of this country.

  • Sweet 16 is not your average farm

    At first glance, the Sweet 16 Farm looks like many area farms, with a tidy house at its center and outbuildings on all sides.

     On closer inspection, however, it’s clear this is no typical operation. There are no visible corn and soybean fields, there’s a noticeable lack of livestock, and just off the farmyard, strange-looking green vines snake their way up towering ropes and poles. 

    While the Sweet 16 Farm may not look like others in the neighborhood, it’s very much a working farm. It’s also the realization of a dream by owners Sarah Joy Wexler-Mann and her husband, Daniel Drazkowski, who bought the property in 2010.
