Celebrate Wisconsin Farm Living with Soil Sisters
Mar 26, 2019 11:04PM
Wisconsin’s inspiring community of women farmers championing local food and family farms will gather at Soil Sisters, the award-winning, largest women farmer-led event of its kind in the nation, from August 2 through 4. The event has been featured in Midwest Living, Modern Farmer and Living the Country Life, and received a 2018 Edible Madison Local Food Hero award.
Participants will tour, taste, learn and play in this multifaceted weekend involving more than 20 women-owned farms in and around Monroe, Brodhead, New Glarus and Blanchardville, in South Central Wisconsin. Women represent approximately 11 percent of primary operators on all farms in Wisconsin, a higher number than neighboring Midwest states. The state has 1,180 organic farms, second in the country only to California.
Highlights include the Taste of Place at Cow & Quince restaurant, a Farm to Table Dinner at Dorothy’s Range and a Pizza on the Farm fundraiser held at Inn Serendipity Farm and Bed & Breakfast. Additionally, restaurants feature specials throughout the weekend showcasing many local ingredients.
Soil Sisters is made possible by the Wisconsin Farmers Union Foundation, the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service and Renewing the Countryside.
