Goose grower struck by lightning in her fields

As we keep her family in our thoughts, we're pulling for Kelly Funk's best future.

Kelly, her husband John, and baby girl Laila work the land at their Seldom Seen Farm. Folks who belong to their CSA pick up a crate of farm fresh goodness weekly at the Goose and the farm's produce stocks the shop's bins temptingly.

Last week, while Kelly was working in her fields harvesting onions, she was struck by lightning. Still in critical condition at a local ICU, Kelly and her family face a long road of recovery.

To help with the expenses and challenges ahead, donations are welcome to the Kelly Funk Recovery Fund. Just note the name of the fund on the deposit slip at any Huntington Bank location.

Slow Food Indy is proud to host a benefit dinner for Kelly and her family. Join us for a sustainably harvested and deliciosly prepared New England Lobster Bake at the Apple Family Farm on Sunday, August 22. Tickest are $75/person and all proceeds will be donated to the Kelly Funk Recovery Fund. Get your tickets and check out the menu.

For updates on Kelly's condition and to offer words of encouragement, check out their farm blog and facebook page.
