Young Earth Farm specializes in delicious, clean and carefully packed organic produce.  We grow 150 varieties of over 20 different types of vegetables.  Your vegetables will arrive in your kitchen looking, smelling, and tasting wonderful.  Our post-harvest handling practices assure that your produce will last for days and sometimes weeks after you get it home.   We handle the produce “like eggs” from the time we harvest from the plants until the item goes into your CSA box to avoid bruising for better quality.   We package items that benefit from being wrapped to hold in moisture during travels to your pick-up site, again to assure quality.

Young Earth Farm is located about 40 miles northeast of Madison, Wisconsin.   Your Farmers, Shirley Young and Karol Niemann, started Young Earth Farm in 2005 in good conscience to provide delicious, healthy, locally produced vegetables without synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.  Since 2010, Young Earth Farm became USDA certified organic through MOSA (Midwest Organic Services Agency).   We take great pride in growing certified organic produce with care in order to protect our planet and it’s precious natural resources.

CSA Members share in our seasonal harvest via our MarketShare CSA program. CSA members receive top quality produce from Young Earth Farm when they visit our market stand and use their monthly puchcard to select the items they want.  We value our relationship with our CSA members who ultimately invest in our farm each season.   In return for that investment, members receive the your individualized selection from our market stand each month of the CSA season (June through October) at your convenience, with a 5% return rate. The blog on our website includes news from the fields, general updates and announcements from the farm, and useful and delicious recipes using items grown on Young Earth Farm.

You can access our delicious produce Saturdays throughout most of the year at Madison’s Dane County Farmers’ Market.  [possible mid-week market TBA]
