The Local Food Fair is Farmshed’s premier community outreach event, bringing together producers, local businesses, educators and consumers to celebrate the vibrant local food community we have in Central Wisconsin!

With the tremendous success of 2020’s event (see our supplement for more), we are excited to be announcing the sponsorship opportunities for the 2022 Local Food Fair at Pfiffner Park, May 7th, 2022.


The Local Food Fair is an amazing event for so many reasons, some of them include: 


  • Introducing new people to local food resources within Farmshed’s 11-county network in Central Wisconsin

  • Generating increased demand for local and sustainably-produced food through education and promotion

  • Supporting the growth and development of local farms and food-related businesses

  • Providing networking and collaborative opportunities for farmers, restaurants, businesses and organizations, and encouraging conversation around the local food economy


Proceeds from sponsorships support Farmshed’s annual programming and events that promote the mission of growing a resilient local food community. Farmshed’s work is diverse and practical; everything we do is about making connections that build a local food system.


Since July 2020, Farmshed has been able to provide 4,000 culturally appropriate meals to area Hmong families with CAP Services. In partnership with Beloved Community Church and the Rotary Club of Portage County, we prepared 500 servings of nutritious soup and bread to those struggling. Through community financial support we‘ve provided 380 meals, two meals per month, to the Hope Center. Sponsorships help maintain and expand Farmshed’s programs which allow us to progress towards a resilient and equitable local food community.

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Local Food Fair, Farmshed, and our mission.
