Noah and Josh Engel, brothers and owners of Driftless Organics in Soldiers Grove, WI have been farming together since they were children. Now, they grow organic vegetables on 100 acres, press sunflower oil, and deliver vegetables nearly all year-round.
“Our story begins back in 1993 when we were just nine and eleven and our mother assigned us the summer project of growing potatoes. Being ambitious farm kids we planted a quarter acre of twenty varieties. Each year our plot expanded and with it our dreams of becoming ‘real’ farmers in our own right. Soon our farm-kid ambition had us buying potato planters and tractors and hiring our mother to drive us to the Dane County Farmer’s Market. The rest is history.
What began as a summer project has now taken the shape of our dreams. We manage over 100 acres of ridge and valley fields in the enchanting Driftless region of Southwest Wisconsin. Our farm is called Driftless Organics and beyond our legendary potatoes, we produce fruit, vegetables and sunflower oil that we share via farmers markets, grocery stores and with Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) members throughout the upper Midwest.” – Noah & Josh Engel, Driftless Organics
