Iowa State senior in global resource systems and horticulture research station employee Jaden Ahlrichs (right) tosses a bell pepper to work colleague and horticulture graduate student Jerimiah Johnson during their harvest Tuesday morning north of Ames. Peppers, onions, tomatoes, eggplant, basil and kale all were picked this week to share at Wednesday's Local Food Festival on central campus. Produce also is sold through the farm's community produce sale, in which online shoppers (with Net IDs) may order fruits and vegetables grown at the farm. They pick up their orders on campus during the Friday lunch hour.
