Whetstone Farm in Amery, WI sits on 2 acres of vegetables surrounded by acres of woods.
They strive to create a farm system that coexists with the native ecosystem, rather than fighting against it. Whetstone focuses on rotational grazing of perennial pasture, managing wooded areas, and growing vegetables with less tillage and fewer inputs. They are always working toward a balance between production and conservation.
“Our CSA provides you with a weekly box of veggies, but it goes far beyond that. It puts your dollars directly in the hands of a local farm family, to be reinvested in our community. It allows you to eat only what is freshest and exactly in season, changing the rhythm of your kitchen from the monotony of the grocery store to vibrant pulse of the seasons. Your food will travel less than 75 miles from field to plate, rather than thousands of miles across the country. Best of all, you know exactly who grew your food. We feed ourselves and our children on the same food, so you know it’s the safest, healthiest, most flavorful we can grow.”
