Wheatfield Hill Organics
Wheatfield Hill Organics is a small, 5th-generation family farm near Durand, Wisconsin. Bordered by the Chippewa River and limestone bluffs, the rolling land was originally chosen in the early 1900’s for pasturing dairy cattle. Today, they continue to care for the land by producing certified organic forages, fruits and vegetables. You’ll notice the difference organic makes with Wheatfield Hill produce.
Whistling Well Farm
Whistling Well Farm is named after the noise their well makes when the wind blows just right. Founded in 1972, Whistling Well Farm is located in the beautiful St. Croix River valley town of Hastings, Minnesota. They grow apples for local co-ops, farmers markets, and school lunch programs. Farmer Charlie Johnson also writes children’s books about his dog, Emmy.
Whole Grain Milling
A year after certifying their farm organic in 1989, Doug and Lin Hilgendorf started Whole Grain Milling Co. They grow and mill a wide variety of grains on their farm using just enough processing to make the whole grains usable and easily digestible while keeping their nutrition intact. Many times, their oats are rolled the day before they arrive at the co-op – now that’s fresh!
Wisconsin Growers Cooperative
Wisconsin Growers Cooperative was founded in 2006 to help 20 local Amish families maintain ownership of their farmland and collectively market their fresh produce. Comprised of approximately 25 small family farms in Western Wisconsin, the co-op’s members are dedicated to using approved organic farming methods and practices. The co-op’s pay-it-forward philosophy centers around building and maintaining soil health to grow high-quality produce. More than 40 acres of the co-op’s land is farmed without fossil fuels, instead using horses, horse machinery, and hand tools.
