Wellspring is a Nonprofit Education and Retreat center, as well as a Certified Organic Farm and CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) whose mission it is to inspire and teach people to grow, prepare and eat healthy food. In so doing, we transform food systems and build community.
Festival and Winter Shares - see below
Sign up for your Fall/Winter Share Today!
We're 2 weeks away from the end of the regular CSA season!
Trust us....you are NOT going to want to miss these three boxes that will help you enjoy the 2016 growing season while you get the snow and cold of 2017!
These shares consist of a larger, 1 1/9 bushel box of various storage crops(onions, carrots, winter squash, etc) as well as our frost-sweetened winter greens.
Boxes will be delivered to your pick up site every other week - Thursday, October 27th, Thursday, Nov. 10th, and ending TUESDAY, November 22nd (3 boxes total). Delivery will NOT be available at West Bend Farmers Market (it will be closed for the season)
These make great shares for storing and eating through the winter OR cook a Thanksgiving feast! We provide storage tips like "store carrots in a box with newspaper in a dark corner of a closet or basement".
If you have never had "frosted greens" (they go through a light frost and then thaw before harvesting), then you don't know what you have been missing. The plant produces more sugar to help protect it from freezing, so it has a naturally sweeter taste. So yummy!
The price of the fall/winter share is $180 which is just $60 a box and the value far exceeds the cost. The delivery fee is $12-16 in total for all three deliveries depending on your location, or free if you are picking up on the farm. Drop off sites include West Bend, Menomonee Falls, Wauwatosa, Bayview, several locations in Milwaukee, Mequon, Cedarburg, Grafton, and Port Washington.
Work sites may also consider becoming a drop site with 4 or more Winter Shareholders at their site. Contact Farmer Theresa for more information.

We offer a variety of classes, school programs, consultative services and workshops for adults, teens, children and farmers.
Our programs include Farm to School, gardening, food
preparation and preservation, summer camps, farm tours, field trips, workshops and much more!
We are a working organic farm that serves as a model for sustainable growing practices while teaching the next generation of farmers how to grow food.
Through our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, consumers enter into a partnership to receive a weekly “share” of the farm’s produce - a box of nourishing, certified-organic produce delivered each week throughout the growing season.
We provide our community – as well as travelers from anywhere – a place to hold events in our conference and retreat center. Guests also have the opportunity to experience farm life by staying in either our Bed & Breakfast or certified International Hostel.
We are open year-round and are available for weddings, anniversaries, family reunions, birthdays, or just a relaxing retreat in nature with a farm fresh breakfast!
