Wellspring Organic Farm
It takes a certain tenacity to remove yourself from the world and dedicate your life to farming, but that’s what three 20somethings —Nancy, Evan and Kassie—have done. Wellspring, a farm located 30 minutes north of Milwaukee, has not only served as a working farm providing certified organic produce to farmers markets and CSA members, but a center for education. The farm - hosts a variety of workshops and retreats, from forging to soap-making. The full-timers (Nancy from Connecticut, Evan from California and Kassie from Oregon) live on the grounds in a converted barn. Their passion for living a healthy, sustainable lifestyle not only taught me about the struggles/successes of young farmers, but also allowed me to understand a way of life I've never been exposed to before.
