Our Farm…

Our Home for Generations
We are located outside of Bangor, Wisconsin on a 280-acre diversified farm. Our family has been farming for over 100 years, since 1906. In addition to growing fresh vegetables, flowers, herbs, and fruits, we grow field crops to feed our Hereford beef cattle, and chickens.  For four generations we have been farming with the land in mind. Contour strip cropping was implemented in the early 1900’s to prevent soil erosion. Grass waterways and vegetative buffers were also installed to maintain water quality and soil fertility. Through crop diversity and seasonal rotations we strive to minimize insect predators and disease.

We are committed to growing quality local, organic produce. Our vegetables and flowers became certified organic in June of 2007 by the Midwest Organic Services Association (MOSA). All of our crop land will be certified organic in May 2009. In the future we plan to certify our cattle and chickens. At this point our livestock is all-natural, and fed organically.

Our primary motivation in farming is to provide healthy, sustainable food for our family and for our community. We enjoy eating well, and hope that we can help you eat well!
