Solar tour

Wendy Stein and Phil Freeman stand by the solar panels they installed last year to power Hungry Hill Farm west of Washburn. Thanks to the couple’s low energy consumption, the panels generate more than enough to power the farm and their home.

Masses of flowers surrounding a movable greenhouse paint a pretty picture at Hungry Hill Farm on Maple Hill Road west of Washburn.

Wendy Stein and Phil Freeman, both formerly of the U.S. Forest Service, grow produce high in the hills on the farm they bought in 2000. They’ve cut back recently on production, Stein said, but they grow pretty much all the vegetables people commonly see in a Northwoods garden, plus some warmer-climate veggies in their hothouse.
