Wellspring is a Certified-Organic Farm and CSA, as well as a nonprofit Education and Retreat Center whose mission is to inspire and teach people to grow, prepare and eat healthy food. In so doing, we transform food systems and build community. Our organization is committed to growing the next generation of organic farmers and gardeners and our programs are designed to educate others about food safety, security and sovereignty. Since 1982 programs offered to the public have included wellness, ecology and gardening, the arts, and personal growth. Just 35 minutes from downtown Milwaukee, Wellspring provides educational opportunities through farm 2 school programs, school field trips, farm tours & tastings, internships, and gardening and cooking classes. We distribute our organic produce (through its CSA, restaurant sales, and farmers markets) to communities within a 4-county area. In addition, Wellspring is a Retreat and Conference Center, a Bed and Breakfast and an International Hostel. Visitors enhance the community life at Wellspring; volunteers are welcome.

I really enjoyed my CSA share from wellspring. They did a great job giving a variety of different veggies! And the box was always packed full. The quality was great and if there was a "cosmetic issue" like holes in the arugula, Allisa, the farm manager, let you know in the weekly newsletter.... [more]
