“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) third 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!
Beeville Honey is a family run beekeeping and honey products company located a half mile east of Blancardville just 39 miles southwest of Madison, Wisconsin. Michael is the beekeeper and Stacey and kids market our products at the Argyle and Blanchardville Farmers markets during the summer months. We also take part in many of the Holiday Craft and Vendor sales in the area. We love to share our honey with our customers, helping them make life a little healthier and sweeter.
Katy and Mark Dickson are entering their ninth season as market gardeners. Located in the rolling hills of Green County, Christensen’s Farm is a family endeavor. Three generations enjoy digging in the dirt and growing healthy high quality organic produce. We raise a wide variety of vegetables and berries and have free range happy chickens that provide delicious eggs.

Farmer Johns' Cheese
Four generations of John Doughertys have produced milk on our family farm at 5608 Far Look Rd, Spring Green, WI. Our milk is converted into cheese by four different cheese factories associated with the Scenic Central Cooperative. We are proud of our family farm and of the Eastside Farmer's Market, of which we have been a member since its inception.
