Kate and Tyler Rowe are farming on the same farm that Tyler grew up on. They call it Burr Oak Gardens after the heritage burr oak tree behind their house. They’re certified organic, growing for a CSA, u-pick strawberries, an on-farm market stand, and a retail greenhouse on farm. They also sell at the Rio and new Sun Prairie farmers’ markets.
Your family food dollars are Little Green Soldiers for Good. Spend them directly with your local farmers via CSA or at the Madison farmers’ markets. Check out the Wisconsin Farm Fresh Atlas for farm and farmers’ market listings across Wisconsin, or Local Harvest for listings nationwide.
5 Minutes on the Farm was recently awarded a silver 2016 Excellence in Journalism award from the Milwaukee Press Club for Best Long Form Feature Story in the Audio category.
