S.CollinsThe day finally came for our Ultimate Garden Giveaway to come to an end. The winner? A hard-working, farming family from Michigan.

Kriste Misiak, her husband and her five children will be reaping in the benefits of winning the sweepstakes—and they definitely deserve it.

Caleb Regan, associate editor of Grit magazine, one of our sister publications that supported this incredible giveaway, says that Grit magazine is very thankful that a family like Kriste’s won the giveaway. Kriste's family exhibits the values that Grit honors, such as hard work and importance of community. The family owns a 34-acre farm where they strive to be eco-friendly by not using pesticides. They even donate surplus food to their local church and food pantry!

“I hope to instill empathy in my children. Hard times can fall upon anyone. It is our duty to help all as much as we are able. Good things will also come to you in your time of need,” Misiak says about her family donating food.
