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, Farm & Business Manager, Operations Manager, Sib Pab Kitchen Lead, AmeriCorps Volunteer Coordinator, Maintenance Assistant, Kitchen Interns, UWSP Graduate Assistant/Kitchen Manager, our Board of Directors, and many dedicated, hardworking volunteers.
