By Victoria Lipscomb, media relations intern


The Student Organic Farmers of Oakland University are getting in the spirit of the season by hosting a produce and bake sale in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

The event will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21,  in South Foundation Hall. All baked goods for sale will be homemade, prepared with locally sourced and natural organic ingredients. 

Baked goods for sale include:

  • Oatmeal cookies
  • Pumpkin bread
  • Pumpkin pie (slices or 8” whole)

“As the weather got cold and our summer crops died we wanted to figure out a way to promote our organization,” said Billy Puuri, president of the Student Organic Farmers organization. “That's how we came up with a Thanksgiving produce and bake sale.”

The group will take pre-orders for pies and bread. Pre-order options are cheaper and guarantee students a pie or bread on the day of the bake sale. Pre-orders will be accepted through Friday, Nov. 16.

Each loaf of bread are $6 and pies are $12. Very few non-pre-ordered pies or breads will be available on the day of the bake sale, and will be sold on a first come basis.

In addition to the baked goods, produce will also be for sale:

  • Potatoes
  • Lettuce 
  • Squash 
  • Kale 
  • Collards 
  • Parsley 

The Student Organic Farm is located on campus. Anyone can volunteer on the farm. For pre-orders and more information contact the Student Organic Farmers of OU at studentorganicfarmersou@gmail.com.
