“BAER GARD” means Berry Farm in Norwegian and our name reflects the rich heritage of our small family farm as well as our location on the Yahara River in Stoughton, WI. This is our (Rich and Fern Hosfeld’s) second season of providing certified organic red raspberries. We grow seven varieties selected for Midwest hardiness and flavor. We harvest our raspberries for the community to enjoy nature’s natural dessert and to experience our berries’ many health benefits. We look forward to seeing you at the market!
Blue Skies Farm
Blue Skies Farm was founded in 1991 by Paul and Louise Maki, then as a means to show that small scale agriculture is viable. Now 25 years later we are very much a success! Blue Skies grows using organic and bio-dynamic methods and was Certified Organic from 1993 through 2006, until we chose to not support the current program. Our primary crops are raspberries (pre-picked and U-pick), tropical ginger and turmeric, tomatoes, onions, asparagus, greens, root crops, herbs and if the season is good, unsprayed apples. During the holiday season we also provide unsprayed holiday trees.
Bruno Botanicals stand will feature an array of fresh and nutritious wild edibles and medicinal plants for making your own preparations alongside fresh and seasonal prepared foods. You can expect to find spring tonic pestos, medicinal syrups, hot sauce and wild berry jams alongside plants starts of calendula, yarrow, chamomile and more, seasonally available herbs and wild edibles such as stinging nettle in the spring time, wild berries in the summer and roots and more prepared foods in the fall. Liz Bruno is bringing this market stand as a way to share information and access to plant medicine into community, leveraging her decade of studies of herbalism and natural medicine, while pursuing her own economic stability. The stand will also be a place to practice models of wealth redistribution through sliding scale options and connecting to larger purpose as a place to find information and contribute to projects forwarding social and environmental justice.
