Featured Farms

The following is a list of some local area farms. There are many benefits of pastured-raised or grass-fed meats and dairy. When working for the Oconomowoc Lake Club, I increased our local area farms purchases 500% in 6 years. But it is much more than just dollars, it’s building relationships.  “Once you start, you never want to go back.” -JK

Buying directly helps in many ways. Farmers normally get 10-30% of the retail dollar, but by buying directly, they receive up to 100%. That same money then recirculates 3 to 5 times in the local community. Instead of receiving farm gate prices or commodity prices, farms are paid a just and sustainable price for their food. Farmers are willing to grow unique and diverse foods for us. Some of our best food is grown just down the road, not half way around the world. Farmers markets are one of the best ways to scout for new farmers, but remember not all farmers go to markets. Farmers can often lead you to other farmers, especially for the ones who do not go to markets.  

“Finding a new farmer or locally grown food is like finding a new treasure.” -JK
