2015 On Farm Events:
–Annual Bee Blessing, potluck and Tour- June 26th, 2016. Tour our farm, including a look at some active bee hives. Listen to April’s (the beekeeper) bee talk and tour the insides of an empty bee hive. Enjoy a meal with your farmers… potluck style.
-Gleaning Potlucks- These are new this year. The days will be announced 1-2 weeks in advance. The plan is to invite folks out to enjoy the day on the farm, including a lunch potluck meal, and have a chance to glean through a specific crop after we are finished harvesting from it, but before we turn it under. Expected crops are beans, tomatoes, and broccoli.
–Fall Frenzy Potluck picnic- TBA (planning for sometime in Sept. 2016) Humbolt Park in Milwaukee. In the fall, we come out Milwaukee to enjoy a picnic with our CSA members and supporters. We create a space for our food community to get better acquainted; making LotFotL t-shirts together, playing games, and enjoying the fall weather.
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.
