  5. Something’s fishy about these veggies

    After 20 years handling numerous operations for the company that owns both Sub and Stuff and Spaghetti Jacks restaurants, Gary Poulson opened his first Hog Wild Pit BBQ in 1998. After opening the seventh store in 2012, Poulson sold Hog Wild and went in search of his next venture. Nearly 35 years in the restaurant business fostered his growing concern about our food supply in the U.S., he saw our current way of growing livestock with added hormones and antibiotics and producing crops with Roundup ready seeds and GMOs (genetically modified organisms) as unsustainable and yearned to find a way to grow healthier food for his community. Poulsons family purchased 90 acres of land north of Hutchinson, and Wholesome Meadow Farms was born.

Ever since Douglass senior Cashlyn Munroe sustained a season-ending injury in December, it hasn’t set right with the team to be starting without one of their friends —  and someone who had contributed so much to their program. That thinking put coach Jason Wilson into action, and he arranged a surprise for the senior.
