We had the extreme pleasure of joining Fabulous Farm Babe Pam Jahnke in her studio a couple weeks ago to talk about the many Community  Supported Agriculture (CSA) options throughout Wisconsin. Pam is the Farm Director at Wisconsin Farm Report Radio, and has been doing farm broadcasting, radio and television for most of her life. She is deeply involved in the Wisconsin agricultural world, farming in partnership with her brother, sister and parents on their home farm, and advocating for local food options.

Scott Laeser and Chelsea Handler of Plowshares & Prairie Farm in Argyle, Wisconsin work hard to manage their 75-acre property. Using restorative techniques, they ensure that they are not only reducing their carbon footprint on the earth, but also building up the soil's health for a viable future. "When we provide nutrients to our fruits and veggies, we want them to stay in our fields and not pollute our stream. So, when and how we put them on and how we manage our soil are all focused on minimizing nutrient loss as well as maximizing plant health. Not just on…
Winter work varies from farm to farm. At Two Onion Farm in Belmont, Wisconsin, Chris and Juli McGuire spend the latter part of the season pruning their apple trees.  "Winter is the time to prune apple trees for us at Two Onion Farm. Pruning opens up the trees, gives us bigger, tastier fruit, and allows us to remove any dead or diseased branches. We love spending time with the trees year-round! We're looking forward to spring and another season of CSA." - Chris & Juli McGuire, Two Onion Farm Visit thatscsa.org to learn more about Community Supported Agriculture and getting fresh vegetables…
FairShare launched a "That's CSA" promotional campaign in February to spread awareness about Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and to encourage people to sign up for CSA shares. As part of the campaign, NBC 15 filmed a two-part TV commercial pro bono, which is airing for the month of March! We had a blast filming the commercials with the crew and FairShare farmers, and are incredibly excited to share the finished products with you now. Visit ThatsCSA.org to find a farm that works for you. Thank you to our sponsors for supporting FairShare in connecting farmers and eaters through CSA.

A farm update from the polar vortex - Lovefood LLC, Stoughton Winter on the farm brings time for reflection on the past year and planning for the coming season. The general mood is total excitement.
