- Spring season is April though mid-June. It’s the season of flowers, with glowing green buds and blossoms on the trees. Farms are producing early goods from green houses. Also, great spring crops, like leafy greens, asparagus, rutabaga, strawberries, are already up and edible. It’s also the tastiest time of the year to head to the woods to pick wild plants and mushrooms.
- Summer is from mid-June to the end of August. With the gardens full of green beans, raspberries, carrots, black berries, tomatoes and all the leafy salads, summer in Wisconsin is sweet! The weather is hot enough to go for a swim, but cool enough to stay outside all day and enjoy it.
- Fall is from September to the first of November. The season of plenty! Everything is ready to be harvested: corn on the cob; apples; grapes; squash; potatoes; cabbage; watermelons; all of the garden goodies! Fall colors are world class as leaves turn marvelous shades of yellow, orange, and red.
Group Sizes and Families
- Winter is beautiful, but the cold weather and snow make it hard to do farm tours. We close down our operations and focus on cutting wood and keeping our homes warm!
Our tours are custom made and range in size form as small as just a few friends interested in the easy going country life to as big as a tour bus full of organic agricultural students seeking an intense hands on education. Families in particular seem to enjoy the balance of hands-on education, eye opening fun activities and customized flexibility that we offer.
All Languages Welcome!
