2015 Traci C. LoBianco Dubuque Winter Farmers’ Market Grant Award

Traci LoBianco
The Traci C. LoBianco Dubuque Winter Farmers’ Market Grant Award was established in memory of Traci (1960-2009), a passionate volunteer and devoted supporter of local food providers in the Dubuque area. The program supports farmers and producers who are working to increase their yield and variety.

The 2015 recipients are:
Pete Henkels, Bluebell Orchard
Pete will use the grant to invest in plum and pear trees to further diversify the products available at the Winter Market.


Holly Marks, Holliberri Icelandics
Looking for ways to expand her breakfast offerings, Holly will use the grant to get a fryer and extra griddle for new items like hash browns and french toast.


Barb & Steve Pethoud, Barb’s Garden Pantry
The grant allowed Barb to purchase another stainless steel table needed for packaging, labeling, and storage of a third type of nut-free granola.
