Welcome to Threshing Table Farm!
Thank you for visiting our website. We're getting ready for our 2014 season!
It's time for seed ordering, planning field layout, enjoying the fruits of our labor with many goodies from the freezer and pantry and learning from other farmers.

New this year- we will be delivering to the city of New Richmond in addition to past sites. Choose to pick up at the Centre in New Richmond, or find 4 (or more) friends to get shares and call us to set up your own site.
Our farm is located a few miles out of New Richmond, Wi in Star Prairie. We are in our 7th year of being CSA farmers. We raise around 7 acres of vegetables, using only natural, sustainable methods of farming. We never use herbicides, and we do a lot of weeding! We also use crop rotation, cover crops, composting and natural fertilizers to enhance soil fertility. Good soil fertility also helps with weed control and pest control. On the rare occasion that we use a pesticide to save a crop from a particularly aggressive pest, we only use Organic Certified pesticides. We plant many kinds of seeds, some heirloom and some hybrid, but never GMO.
We also have a small flock of laying hens that free range as much as possible. They are not allowed in the gardens however. They provide us with eggs that we offer to CSA members when we have extra. We have been lucky to pasture our neighbor's pigs on our farm. They eat our produce scraps and do a fabulous job of rooting up areas of the farm that we would like to clear for new vegetation. We offer residence to bees, even bring them right to our hives each spring. They do a wonderful job of pollinating for us, but for whatever reason, don't always stay around to provide a bountiful honey harvest. Better luck this year!
The rest of our farm family includes- 2 friendly goats and a horse that take care of grazing the grassy areas of the farm, a quiet, but steadfast rabbit, several cats and an energetic Chocolate lab. Mix those in with our 3 children, and you have a recipe for a fun and adventurous farm and family!
If you are interested in getting a share, check out our newsletters from the past few years. We send one each week of the growing season. You can see what types of vegetables go into the box each week and what to do with them. We include storage tips and recipes as often as possible. Read through our brochure as well. If you still have questions, please don't hesitate to call or e-mail us.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy the winter. Spring is on it's way!!
