Circle M is a valley farm on 20 acres nestled between a river and a creek in the gorgeous Driftless Area of Southwest Wisconsin. Surrounded by oak hills and quilted cropland, the homestead's stately red barn and quaint outbuildings house a diverse agricultural operation that joins vegetables and animals in a productive, fertile circle of interdependence. Gentle and wise care of livestock and land are the highest priority, and production of healthy and delicious food the primary goal. We practice non-chemical intensive hand farming, limited tractor cultivation and grow on only a small percentage of our acreage. The rest is left for grazing our beef, pigs, chickens, ducks, turkeys, sheep and goats. Circle M is a wonderful CSA option for families who hope to provide their children with a meaningful and fun connection to the land. We deliver every other week to 6 sites in Madison, one each in Dodgeville and New Glarus and offer farm pickup as well. Call to visit the farm any time.

Small farms have the ability to serve the community by improving our health and protecting the environment. At the farm, we eat the food we grow and want it to be the highest quality possible, produced without any pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. We market to the Dane County area through our CSA and the MadWest Farmersí Market on Thursdays from 4-7pm, located at the Lussier Community Education Center near Memorial High School.

Hilltopís 60 acres, including 25 of restored prairie, overlooks the Big Creek valley of northwest Sauk County. Working mostly by hand, we provide a limited number of 20-week shares (mid-May to mid-October), typically using less than a pint of fuel on-farm per yearly share. Subscribers can expect to receive raspberries, currants, apples, pears, quince and hardy kiwi in addition to a wide variety of vegetables and herbs. We support re-localizing and redistributing wealth more equitably and will therefore consider accepting partial payment in trade or local currency. Pickup is Sunday evening on North Baldwin Street, east isthmus.

Gayl & I have about one-half an acre that is planted to over 50 different varieties of flowers, fruits and vegetables. Produce is picked at its peek of freshness and delivered to our members doorstep once a week mid June through mid October. On most weeks a bouquet of fresh flowers also is provided. Early spring products such as maple syrup, asparagus, etc are delivered as available. Late fall products are delivered until early in November depending on the growing season. We are only recruiting members who live within 10 miles of Dodgeville. We have limited openings for the 2015 growing season. If you are interested please contact us.

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.

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.
