We make Local EASY…
What’s New at LotFotL:
Spring Meat Shares – Deliveries begin in Feb. Boxes are delivered 1 time per month to select drop sites for a 3 month stint. This share will include meat from our farm or other local Wisconsin farms each month. All meat is organically fed, gmo-free fed, or grass fed. We assemble boxes by raising or buying whole animals, so members may have the chance to experience a couple of new things, like soup bones, bacon pieces, or a ham shank, in addition to all your favorites (ground, roasts, steaks, hams, etc). Order deadline Feb 13th, 2016 or while supplies last…
Pastured Heritage Breed Hogs: The pigs are raised here on our farm in Elkhorn, WI. (We also have late season pork available that was raised by Dandee Berks) They are pastured and fed organically (Dandee Berk is not feeding organic, but using non-GMO feed). Pig are available for purchase as 35 lb, 70 lb, and 140 lb boxes, or as part of our Winter Meat Shares, that will include beef, chicken, and pork. Watch for our newsletter announcement or FB posting.
2015 On Farm Events:

LotFotL – The Milwaukee Area’s CSA Alternative
LotFotL is located about 40 minutes from outskirts of Milwaukee and only 1 hour from the heart of downtown. But LotFotL is thousands of miles away from ordinary food.
5 vegetable share types, fruit, eggs, meat, honey, and many other items, all brought to you at convenient drop off locations. We make deliveries throughout Milwaukee and the surrounding area. Click here to see more about our shares and how you get our food to your table.
Exceptional Customer Service and Flexibility. Planning a vacation; put your share on hold. If your share size isn’t fitting your needs, come talk to us. At LotFotL we take care of you.
We at LotFotL know that we are caretakers of the land and that we need to leave it in better condition than we found it. We use appropriate shallow cultivation, living mulches, or straw. We follow strict crop rotation cycles, and plant on contour or on ridges to utilize natural water flow pattern. We continue to grow according to organic standards and often times exceed them. We are proud to say that we are now certified organic.
The vast majority of what goes into CSA shares is grown in accordance of standards set for organic certification and is soon to be certified, but on occasion some crops come from other farms or fields that, while managed in a way consistent with certified organic crops, are not currently certified.
We Give Back
Every year we donate to local food pantries, school fundraisers, or Habitat for Humanity. What most young businesses do not afford, we make happen, with your help. We believe in community.
