Argus Farm Stop

August 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$10

A Year-Round Shop for Local Food

OLLI After 5

In 2014, Kathy Sample and Bill Brinkerhoff co-founded Argus Farm Stop in Ann Arbor with the goal of growing the local-food economy. Argus Farm Stop is a new retail model designed to provide locally grown food year-round, an every-day venue for farmers to sell their products.

In August 2017, Argus opened a second location on Packard Road near Wells. The original location puts over $1 million per year back into the hands of local farms and producers, and the second store is on target to do the same. Kathy and Bill are currently working with more than 20 individuals and groups to open similar models around the U.S. They have 3 children, and have made Argus a family adventure.

After 5 events are open to the public, and do not require OLLI membership.

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE IN LOCATION TO THE KELLOGG EYE CENTER, 1000 WALL STREET.
