Soil Sisters Celebrate Summer on the Farm

Soil Sisters—a cross-section of women farmers prioritizing small-scale, diversified, community-focused agriculture—will present a weekend of farm activities designed to offer an immersive farming and culinary experience from July 31 through August 2. The five unique activities involve more than 20 locations, celebrating Wisconsin’s family farms and rural life in and around the farming communities of Monroe and Brodhead.

Green Acres: In Her Boots, a daylong, hands-on program for aspiring women farmers, facilitated by the Midwest Organic & Sustainable Education Service, will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., July 31. On August 1, Green Acres will host on-farm, hands-on, educational workshops from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. From 4 to 9 p.m., Dinner on the Farm, a farm-to-table picnic featuring local cuisine and live music, will take place. Taste of Place, at Cow & Quince Restaurant, a local food and drink celebration, will also be held from 3 to 5 p.m., August 1.

From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., August 2, the Tour of Farms will take place, in which farm stands are open at numerous farms, sharing eggs, fresh produce, cut flowers and hand-crafted items.
