the coming season, 2013, we no longer will be offering the prepaid
Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) plan. Instead, we'll
offer home delivery of fresh produce to your home.
We're in the process of reorganizing into a workers' cooperative,
which will engage in growing produce, delivering produce, preserving
food and other work that will provide a livelihood to some low-income
working people in our area.
Send an email to This Address
and we'll keep you informed by email, what's available each week in the
Stevens Point, Wisc. Rapids, Marshfield and other areas in a reasonable
radius of Point.
(And we'll be growing for sale at farmers' markets).
a view looking east. The 5 acres ends more or less at the tree line,
where there's an enormous pile of field stones apparently picked from
the field by earlier farmers using this site. This ground hasn't
been tilled or plowed in decades, according to neighbors and everyone
else we've talked to.
view is to the north from the same spot as the other picture. The power
poles are the property line, and the road you see is Highway 10.
Traffic-especially truck traffic--on that road should decrease quite a
bit when the Highway 10 "Bypass" boondoggle project is finished.
Looking north-east, you'd see that the land slopes down toward the
northeast gradually and uniformly, with a swale area from left to right
starting with those small poplar, willow and white pines seen on the
left about 300 feet away.
is this small pond at the NW corner. It doesn't seem to outlet to the
small creek further to the east. The land where I'm standing is fairly
dry, even after the heavy rain of August. Actually the ground at the
top of the 5 acres is wetter in places than this spot here.
other day I disturbed a big Great Blue Heron, who took off in haste
before I even saw him/her standing there. I'm hoping we can improve
wildlife habitat on this site and attract more, even while working on
it as farm land.
east, beyond this pond the ground is fairly wet, and then there's a
creek that drains the wetland across Highway 10, about 200 feet from
the edge of this pond. In the upper right corner is a small sign
marking the county snowmobile trail that runs thru this site as well.
The water flows toward the Wisc. River, whose sloughs and boat
landings are about 2-3 miles east of here.
Air403 catching a lot of wind during the early November "midwest
hurricane." We were getting gusts over 40 MPH, which maxes out the
turbine and causes it to stall and come to a stop, for protection from
overspeed. Thanks to Alex Myers also of Mid-States Technical
College for a recent wind-power assessment on our site; we look forward
to reading it.
produce will be grown using natural, organic methods without
applications of pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers.
We will be maintaining soil fertility and
organic matter using composts, cover crops and "green manure."
With this kind of growing, we are aiming to be "sustainable."
However, we're not certified organic.
