Tippecanoe County farmers Neil &Tashney Moseley, owners of Pleasant Acre Farms, are expanding their offerings to Purdue University football games. During all home games, the Moseley’s will sell a variety of goods from a concession stand in Ross-Ade Stadium.

“Tashney and I are very excited to be able to offer Purdue fans some local, healthy concession options while they cheer on the Boilers,” said Neil Moseley. “Having our farm featured as a new vendor for Ross-Ade is an honor and we hope everyone comes by our booth and enjoys the fruits of our labor.”
