If you know us, you know we can’t NOT keep thinking of ways to have fun, make money and help our community, all at the same time. As sad as I was to close the creamery in 2019, based on the results of 2020, I think it was a terrific idea!! However, we couldn’t bare to let the hard work and money we’d invested in the building itself go to waste and it became pretty clear our community could use a nice, affordable commercial kitchen to rent out to budding food entrepreneurs.
Thus was born Bifrost Farms Kitchen!! We now have a space that our food and farming community can use to introduce their products to the world without having to install their own licensed kitchen. We’re so excited to see what yummy treats start leaving our kitchen, ya’ll! Here are a few pics. Things might change around before we have a hard open in a couple of weeks, but still…. I love you my Wisconsin foodies!
i.e., Bifrost Farms joins a CSA Cooperative!
I just realized I made exactly one post in 2018 and it wasn’t very happy and upbeat. Please allow me to rectify that. It was mostly due to 2018 being a banner year for us, meaning I made and sold more cheese than ever before. And you know what? 2019 is shaping up to make this a trend!
Most of all, I would like to announce that I am ever so proud to be part of the Local Choice Cooperative Producers organization. We were formed in late 2018 to bring local, sustainably produced food including veggies, fruit, meats, goat cheese, eggs, fresh and dried herbs, dried beans, mushrooms, jams, sauces and pickles, all while supporting 7+ farms, Bifrost Farms among them.
This is pretty exciting for me because I’ve been reading about these whole meal CSAs, mostly in the Northeast, for years and thinking how fabulous it would be to have such an option in our little old Western section of WI. Have your read “The Dirty Life,” by Kristin Kimball? The chance to offer so much more than greens and tomatoes, delivered to your door, and every bit of it produced using non-GMO, sustainable farming practices, whether it is for livestock or produce, is literally a dream come true.
LCCP has Herbivore and Omnivore shares available for an extended 22 week season. It’s also busting another CSA paradigm by offering payment options. Even though we don’t think our shares are overpriced for what you are getting, we do realize that sometimes it can be hard to come up with such a large chunk of change up front. So, why not look hard at what you’re spending at the grocery store on a weekly basis, check us out and hopefully you will see how hard we’re trying to bring local, sustainable food to the Red Cedar River community.
