This is our 7th year as a CSA. We started with 15 shares and now we offer 75 shares. We do companion planting to help get the most of our garden. We use our greenhouse and growing tunnel to get an early start. We also use our growing tunnel to extend the season. We are natural farmers. We do not use chemicals but we do use potting soil to start our plants. We have taken bee keeping class to learn how to have honey for our shareholders. We are raising a few chickens in 2013 to get us ready for eggs in 2014. We have hosted Manawa FFA Food for America for the past years. We also do pumpkin planting and harvesting with local schools. We have also hosted Pumpkin Pallooza for Waupaca County 4H. After our 14 weeks we hold a Come and Get It Party for our members. If it is still in the garden you are welcome to harvest it. It is a great way to tour the farm and meet other members.
"All things grow with love." -Unknown Author This is the slogan we have chosen. We enjoy living in the country. In 2010 each member received approximately 200 pounds. We picked over 5 ton of fresh produce from our 3 acres we planted. We enjoy sharing our love for gardening. We are working on honey for next year. We will be having a few canning classes. It is alot of work but we enjoy digging in the dirt. We now accept Paypal. We look forward to 2014!

What should I plant new this year?
Every year we plant something new in the garden. Any suggestions? I have never planted collards. I am not sure if we can grow these in Wisconsin. What are you looking forward to the most in the garden? My favorite is green beans.... [more]
