Great Oak Farm is a 60 acre, UDSA Certified Organic farm in the beautiful rolling hills just south of Ashland, WI.  Founded in 2009 and formally certified as Organic in 2011, we are proud to say that no synthetic chemicals, artificial fertilizers, genetically modified crops, hormones, or sub-therapeutic antibiotics have ever been used in any crop we have ever produced! We grow about 8 acres of delicious organic vegetables for your CSA boxes, including tomatoes, onions, carrots, beets, sweet corn, broccoli, spinach, cucumbers, winter squash, peas, green beans, and cabbage. In order to get a jump on the short growing season here in the Northland, many of our crops are started in our heated greenhouse, then transplanted into one of our unheated hoop houses in the spring (often while there is still snow on the ground!) Then, to keep CSA boxes full through the long winter months, we store many pounds of veggies in our root cellar. The farm is also home to a small flock of 100% grass-fed Navajo-Churro and Tunis sheep - both breeds are recognized on the Slow Food Ark of Taste for outstanding culinary qualities.  From our wood heated, straw bale house to our Organic growing practices, we are deeply committed to sustainable living and restorative agriculture.  Thanks for making us your farmers!  - Chris Duke, farmer
