Neu Erth Wormfarm
Wormfarm has been marketing sustainably raised vegetables through CSA since 1995. This 40 acre farm in northern Sauk County grows over 60 different crops on about 4 acres of raised beds. We also rotationally graze cattle on the hillside pasture, have a small laying flock and an increasing number of fruit and nut trees. We make extensive use of cover crops, use long rotations, compost and vermi-compost to build healthy, fertile soil. Weekly deliveries of Full and Half Shares are offered in our 20 week season that begins in mid June and runs through Oct. with drop off sites in Baraboo, Sauk City, Wisconsin Dells and Reedsburg.
For the past several years we have marketed under the banner of Wisconsin Home Harvest and linked 3 organic & sustainable farms to increase diversity, reduce risk and ensure excellent value & high quality. Now Wormfarm provides most of the produce and will now resume using our original name- though we will continue to include products, like mushrooms, honey, strawberries, from our neighbors.
The CSA is connected to the Wormfarm Institute a nationally recognized non profit with the mission to integrate culture and agriculture. Wormfarm organizes Fermentation Fest & Farm/ Art DTour and runs an Artist Residency program. Working in the garden is a part of the resident artists day.
