Wisconsin Farmers Union South Central Chapter

Browntown, WI


For three days and with five unique components and involving more than twenty farms, the jam-packed SOIL SISTERS culinary event celebrates Wisconsin's family farms and rural life in and around the farming communities of Monroe, Brodhead, Blanchardville, Belleville, and New Glarus, Wisconsin, over the first weekend of August, 2019.

From heirloom tomatoes to pickles, sheep to solar energy, farmstay bed & breakfasts to beef, the farmers and artisan food producers share a unique diversity of farm experiences showcasing the summer's bounty.  Choose from a variety of activities including Dinner on the Farm at Dorothy's Range, a Taste of Place culinary event at Cow & Quince, "Pizza on the Farm" fundraiser at Inn Serendipity, plentiful on-farm workshops, two unique Bus Tour of Farms, plus area restaurants featuring specials throughout the weekend.

Running from August 2 to 4, 2019, SOIL SISTERS offers an immersive farming and culinary experience, led by women -- the soil sisters -- committed to a healthy, fresh product or farm-made, artisanal food products and other items.  Some of these soil sisters are assisted by their husbands (aka "brothers") and/or their family.

Wear your sun hat, pull on your farmboots or overalls, and kick back for a relaxing time on one, or all, of the farms.  And come hungry for some farm-to-table feasts.
