Anne, Dennis, and Clint, the farmers at Regenerative Roots, steward a beautiful piece of land in Jefferson, WI, near hundreds of acres of prairie, wetland, and woods at Dorothy Carnes County Park. Our primary focus is feeding a small group of CSA members in our local area by cultivating about two acres in diversified produce. We cooperatively own the land with a group of people passionate about sustainability. Beyond Regenerative Roots, the farm is home to a pastured rabbit operation, a small fruit and nut orchard, and vegetable seed production. We prioritize keeping the farm at a manageable size, where we can be personally involved in every step of planting, growing and harvesting food for our members, friends at market, and folks browsing the produce aisle at Willy St. Co-op. Become a CSA member to receive the bounty of this beautiful land and our hard work! Our CSA season spans twenty weeks from June until October, with additional shares available for the holidays. We also have Market Shares, which you can use at our Fort Atkinson and Whitewater market stands! Our members’ weekly shares consist of organic, fresh, seasonal produce, a newsletter with stories from the farm and recipes, as well as invitations to farm events throughout the season. Starting in 2017, longtime friend Clint Freund joined the farm, after a couple years in Nebraska cutting his teeth on vegetable seed production. Something else we’ve added to the mix of activities!
Regenerative Roots is committed to a highly diverse ecology for producing food which encompasses perennials, livestock, and fungi alongside annual vegetable production. We envision the farm as an educational space for ourselves and the community. We believe all of these values will help produce high quality food to nourish the land, ourselves and our neighbors in an ecologically regenerative and economically sustainable way.
