No identification or proof of income required. Stop in at the Farmshed office to pick up a box, or call 715-544-6154 to see if there are any available.
Some of the featured farms include:
Superior Fresh, Bruncow Cheese, Rice River Farms,

Farmshed's 2021 impact
Since 2020 we have undergone many changes, the one constant is Farmshed evolution. This year alone we have hired an Executive Director, added new staff and most importantly added programs that continue to build a better community. The mission to grow a resilient local food economy is still the same, we are just innovating the ways we do it. Increasing our positive impact on health equity, healthy lifestyle, culture, support for community entrepreneurs and organizations. We will accomplish this all through the power of food that is grown by farmers that have the best intentions for the land, water and our health.
If you have a passion for seeing Farmshed grow, this year we ask you to consider a few different ways to donate. We ask that you consider establishing a small monthly donation, consider contributing to our endowment fund held at the Central Wisconsin Community Foundation or inquire about becoming a sponsor. We are grateful for just your engagement in Farmshed and please know. When you donate to Farmshed, participate in a sale, become a member, renew a membership or attend any of the events you see us hosting, you're making a contribution to a more resilient food system. You're providing jobs for passionate professionals placed in central Wisconsin. You're helping our partners build a more resilient food system. You are helping ensure resources for inspiring entrepreneurs. Most importantly, you're supporting the growth of diverse local farmers and the drive to enhance resources and markets that they serve.
