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, we increased our local food purchases by 500% in 6 years. But it is much more than just dollars; it’s building relationships.

Buying directly from farms helps in many ways. Farmers typically get 10-30% of the retail dollar; by buying directly from them, they receive 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 halfway around the world. Farmers’ markets are one of the best ways to scout for new farmers but remember not all farmers go to farmer markets. Farmers can often lead you to other farmers. 

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