Our Mission

Farmshed’s mission is to grow a resilient local food economy.

We partner with family and cooperatively owned farms and local food businesses throughout the region to:

  • Ensure everyone in our community can choose healthy and delicious food.

  • Provide fun ways to enjoy food grown in central Wisconsin throughout the year.

  • Demonstrate growing practices that are good for our water and soil.

  • Launch new businesses, and encourage all businesses to source ingredients locally.

Our goals are two-fold:

1) Expand our programs to ensure everyone in our community can choose healthy locally grown food.

2) Ensure more farm-to-table farms and small food based businesses thrive in central Wisconsin.


Our small but mighty non-profit team is made up of our Executive Director, Sib Pab Kitchen Lead, Growing Collective Coordinator, AmeriCorps Volunteer Coordinator, Maintenance Assistant, Kitchen Interns, UWSP Graduate Assistant/Kitchen Manager, our Board of Directors, and many dedicated, hardworking volunteers.
