 What's New!!!

Spring has come again to Froggy Meadow!  We are busily planting and preparing our fields and gardens for the coming 2015 season.  It's a little early but here's a preview:

Garlic Scapes will be first to arrive in early June.  Next up will be a lovely selection of peas, Golden Snow, Purple Snow, and tasty Sugar Snap peas will arrive just after the scapes. Beets come next at the end of June, both Chioggia and Golden.  Beautiful colors and taste.  In July things start to really happen and you'll see Eggplants, Tomatoes, Tomatillos, Raspberries and  Cucumbers of many types.  Green Walnuts for the Nocino makers and picklers are available for a short time in early July as well. At the end of July the potatoes come in and We'll have Magic Molly, Peter Wilcox, and German Butterball. Last but far from least will be the great Music Hardneck Garlic and rare French Shallots that we're well known for.  Look for them in mid August.  Our Cippollini onions, red and golden, are getting extremely popular and rightfully so.  They're great tasting and store well. Arriving mid August as well. As August ends we'll bring you a fabulous tasting Orangeglo watermelon and nutty flavored Japanese sweet potatoes.  Look for lots of other products along the way.  Check back each week and we'll list the products coming to market.

As we've become more popular it's getting easier and easier to sample our products.  Here are some of the venues where we can be found: 

On Wednesday from 7:00am-1:00pm find us at Chicago's Green City Market in Lincoln Park.

Saturdays we'll be at State and Grand for the Beloit Farmers Market

Eataly Chicago Market is now carrying our products in their vegetable section.  If you're visiting downtown Chicago please ask for our products by name.

North Pond, one of Chicago's finest restaraunts uses our products.  Enjoy a finely crafted meal in the heart of Lincoln Park.

Thanks again to all the great customers and we'll meet at the market again this year!


 

 

 

Welcome to Froggy Meadow Farm.  We are a small family operated farm located a few miles west of Beloit, Wisconsin.  Using organic methods, we produce a small selection of high quality, naturally raised crops.  We are committed to using sustainable agriculture. Absolutely no herbicides, pesticides, or chemical fertilizers are used in our fields.  Our mission is to provide you and your family with healthy safe food that is locally grown.
 
 
Our primary crops here at Froggy Meadow  are Hardneck Garlic and French Shallots.  We also produce a variety of other products such as Honey, Beeswax, Popcorn, Raspberries, Black Walnuts, Morel Mushrooms, and many vegetables available in season.  Please take a look through our site to learn about the products we offer and how to get them.
 
 
Modern agriculture excells at producing vast quantities of food in a very efficient manner.  Unfortunately the cost of this type of production is a reduction in food quality and a heavy reliance on chemicals to fight weeds and pests.  These industrial methods are not friendly to the land or to you the consumer.  Small farms like Froggy Meadow have sprung back to life all over our country as the demand for safe healthy foods has grown.  To be sure of the quality of your food you need to deal with someone you can trust, an individual farmer, not a large corporation.  Food that is local reduces the amount of fuel used to transport products.  Food from other countries may be cheaper but consider how much energy is wasted bringing you that Chinese honey or blueberries from South America.  Don't trust questionable organic labeling on products, instead develop a relationship with a local farm where you can see how your food is grown.  Please support the American family farm.
