Celebrate Wisconsin Farm Living with SOIL SISTERS

This summer, meet Wisconsin’s inspiring community of women farmers championing local food and family farms through SOIL SISTERS: A Celebration of Wisconsin Farms & Rural Life, August 2 through 4. Through five components of the weekend celebration, participants can tour, taste, learn and play in this multi-faceted, on-farm weekend involving more than 20 women-owned farms in and around Monroe, Brodhead, New Glarus and Blanchardville in South Central Wisconsin.

SOIL SISTERS offers a range of on-farm immersive workshops, from preserving the harvest to cheese making, as well as several opportunities to experience what it would be like to run a farm. Dining events featuring items raised by the soil sisters include the Taste of Place at Cow & Quince restaurant, a Farm-to-Table Dinner at Dorothy’s Range and the Pizza on the Farm fundraiser held at Inn Serendipity Farm and Bed & Breakfast. Additionally, restaurants will feature specials throughout the weekend showcasing local ingredients.

SOIL SISTERS is a venture of the Wisconsin Farmers Union Foundation, in partnership with the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES) and Renewing the Countryside. Women represent approximately 11 percent of primary operators on all farms in Wisconsin, a higher number than neighboring Midwest states. Wisconsin has 1,180 organic farms, second in the country only to California.

Cost: Varies per event. For more information, call 608-329-7056 or visit SoilSistersWI.org.
