Featured Product

maple-syrup

Grade A Very Dark Strong Flavor (formerly Grade B). Buy it right here!

Our Grade A Very Dark Maple Syrup is sourced 100% from small family farms in southwestern Wisconsin. A variety of species of hardwood trees, including our maple trees, grow on the steep hillsides of the Ocooch Mountains that surround the beautiful Kickapoo River Valley.

These natural forests in Wisconsin are a healthy mix of many species of trees, unlike huge commercial maple plantations that are often planted in former wheat fields. Great care is taken in harvesting the sap to make the Maple Syrup, ensuring that the health of the tree is not compromised. Our syrup comes from farms that practice sustainable agriculture and that are committed to the following:

No pesticides or chemicals were used to manage this forest. Our farmers do not use any chemical pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers to manage their forests.

Our syrup is also tested for the presence of glyphosate, the most common herbicide in the US, as an added assurance.

A healthy forest. Our farmers limit the number of taps they use in their forests to help sustain the health of the trees. There are no standards in place to limit the number of taps they may have, but the farms have imposed limits on themselves because it is what is best for the trees in the long run.

Organic Heirloom Potatoes. Buy them right here!

Our organic heirloom potatoes come from small-scale family farms in rural southwestern Wisconsin. This is known as the “driftless” area of Wisconsin, because glaciers drifted around this area during the glacial period. This resulted in a unique geographical area of rolling hills and valleys that the early settlers of Wisconsin recognized as having rich soil for grass and crops.

The four seasons and harsh winters allow for the natural death of organic plant life that returns nutrient rich organic matter to the soil each year.

We are currently offering three types of organic potatoes: Organic Heirloom Fingerling Potatoes, Organic Heirloom Sweet Potatoes, and Organic Heirloom German Butterball Potatoes
