We began our journey as farmers with the romantic ideal of preserving the endangered small family farm in 2006.  We were young and strong and highly motivated.  Still very passionate about building a sustainable local economy, a secure sense of knowing where our food comes and fostering a healthy relationship between farmers and eaters, we are fully in love with the CSA model.  We are entering our 11th season as a CSA farm.  We are located about 2 hours West of Madison near Viroqua, WI.

We e-mail out a Weekly Dig Newsletter with stories, pictures and favorite recipes from the farm with your CSA box.  We like to use our Newsletters as a way to help you build a transparent and engaging relationship with your farm-one that inspires and educates, one that nourishes the spirit of family and your body, one that feels wholesome and satisfying.  Visit the farm during one of Farm Events.  We offer a Spring Strawberry Pick, Farm Tour and Potluck and also a Fall Raspberry and Pumpkin Pick n’ Potluck.  We are located about 2 hours West of Madison near Viroqua, WI, but we deliver CSA Shares every Wednesday to Madison, Sun Prairie, Verona, Middleton, Platteville, Lancaster, Dubuque, La Crosse, West Salem, Sparta, Viroqua, Onalaska,  La Farge and more!

We aim to harvest our vegetables at the peak of ripeness when they look and taste the best.  We are proud of our melons, strawberries and sweet corn.  We also provide many of the favorites like onions, garlic, carrots, potatoes, and tomatoes while also challenging you with some of the more unusual vegetables like celeriac root, radicchio, diakon radish, and napa cabbage.  Go on the full journey of a growing season with us and find out what it’s like to eat from the fertile soils of one of America’s Small Family Farms.

The Small Family Farm has a thriving Worker Share program that we are very exited about for people who live in close proximity of our farm near La Farge, WI.  We have around 35 Worker Shares who work in exchange for a weekly box of vegetables.  These workers make the farm feel like a true community farm.  We also have 3 about paid employees.  We farm 9 acres of vegetables.
