Our certified organic family farm is located on the beautiful ridges overlooking the Wisconsin River Valley. Here, we have chosen to specialize in and grow old-time, antique,and exotic varieties of fruit. The unusual and delicious apples and pears that we produce are harder to grow, but we feel, far superior to more common types of fruit. The rich flavor and perfume of our fruit is often lacking in more commercially grown fruit. We practice certified organic methods of agriculture to grow our fruit. Each tree is given special attention. Each piece of fruit is handled gently and hand-sorted. We value quality over quantity. The taste of our Future Fruit is sought after. For thirty-one years, our Future Fruit Farm Family--Bob, Ellen,and Selena Lane--have been testing varieties of apples, pears, and plums, attempting to perfect organic fruit growing methods and meet the challenges of climatic pressures. We value supporting local food supplies and our family farm is dedicated to sustainable agriculture. We hope that you will enjoy our certified organic, difficult-to-grow, unusual Future Fruit. We begin harvesting our fruit in late July and continue harvesting through October. You can find us with our safe and nutritious fruit in Madison at the Dane County Farmers' Market year-round, and Westside Community Farmers' Market late summer and fall, at Madison, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and Chicago natural food stores and Coops; and at the finest restaurants in Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago. We also produce organic Pear Cider, organic Pear Butter, organic Pear-Apple Butter,and organic Apple Butter. 2013 marks the tenth year of our Future Fruit Farm Certified Organic Fruit CSA.
