Farmers Erin and Rob are dedicated to growing food sustainably and building community. We market primarily on a community supported agriculture model, receiving payment in the spring from farm 'members', and providing weekly delivery of organic (though uncertified) vegetables, herbs, fruit, and flowers from mid-May through mid-October.
I recently had the privilege of being nominated to apply for the John Kinsman Beginning Farmer Food Sovereignty Prize through Family Farm Defenders. John, at 87 recently passed on from this world though his legacy continues. He has literally touched the lives of thousands of people as a grassroots pioneer of organic sustainable agriculture and globe trotting advocate of food sovereignty for decades. Rob and I also had the privilege of knowing and having John as a farm neighbor in our rural La Valle, Wisconsin foodshed. His presence will be sorely missed.

I am reminded of what happens when people come together with an open heart and mind to learn and share, celebrate good food. Learn more about ways we are celebrating and what's in store at the peak of summer in our August Newsletter. Read on and happy harvests!
Meanwhile, it's been a return to dare I say 'normal' farm flow here after a full, fruit-filled July hosting ~60 people for our Currant Events Festival and the crew from Northwind Renewable Energy before that. Rob and I are now (with the help of the sun of course) generating our own electricity at the farm!). All in all a relaxing, engaging, joyful, musical, and tasty series of events (all that planning/logistical work seemed to pay off)!
