Equinox Community farm is located in Waunakee, WI, just a few miles from downtown Madison. The farm was started in 2009 by John Binkley as a small CSA grown on less than an acre of land. It has grown to include the Farmer’s Market and a much greater number of CSA shares with around eight acres under cultivation.
Our CSA offerings focus on providing members with a steady supply of the “staple” veggies that they are familiar with such as beans, carrots, potatoes, etc as well as providing a variety of less well-known items such as parsnip or ground cherries on a less-frequent basis.
On the farm we practice sustainable agricultural practices, and although we are in transition to become certified organic we hold our methods to standards that surpass those required by the USDA for certification. Our produce is grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or other chemicals. We use techniques such as cover cropping, mulching, composting, and crop rotation to foster healthy soils and healthy produce.
