Starting with small-batch ginger beers and fermented fruit bubblies, demand from friends and family began to outpace his hobby-level production. Austin’s wife, Hallie, suggested using honey to sweeten his ginger brew. Wisely, Austin obliged as he always listens to his beauty. After perfecting their craft brewed soda recipes, Hallie and Austin decided to take the plunge and combine their love of soda with their deep respect for the local food movement and launched Wisco Pop in July of 2012! They worked along side Zac’s seed-to-plate Homegrown Pizza cart for a number of events, and while we won’t say it was love at first sight…it was damn close. Zac’s organizational skills and knowledge of plants and agriculture make the three a perfect match to bring craft brewed soda to Sconnie and beyond.”

Driftless Organics

organic sunflower oil
Website: DriftlessOrganics.com

Growing up working their parents’ organic dairy farm, Josh and Noah Engel have farming in their blood. At the ages of nine and eleven, they decided to grow some potatoes in their parents’ backyard. It didn’t take long for them to realize – as they pulled great bushel loads of spuds from the earth – that their passion and talents lie in growing organic vegetables.

As they themselves grew, so did their ambition and the number of crops they raised and sold. What began as a quarter acre field of potatoes has now expanded to over one hundred acres of vegetables, fruits, small grains and sunflowers; all grown in the driftless region of local Southwest Wisconsin.

In 2006, Mike Lind joined Josh and Noah and with him he brought not only a similar passion for growing great vegetables, but also a desire to add grass fed cattle to the operation.

With the help of a dedicated crew, Josh, Noah and Mike work tirelessly to sustainably grow some of the best organic food around.

Buvula Farms

Pepin, Wisconsin
Specialties: Organic eggs, organic chicken, netting cart
Website: BuvalaFarm.com

Matt Buvala says, “I grew up on a dairy farm in Northern Wisconsin. After graduating from high school and then technical school, I worked in the construction trades for a time before joining the US Navy and making a career of it . After retiring from the Navy, I made my way back to Wisconsin and soon discovered that some of the “farm boy” was still in me. So this ‘farm boy’ started raising free-range chickens. My first flock was small but gradually grew to where I am now with about 275 laying hens. I am fortunate that the chickens and eggs are in demand from businesses throughout the area. As the flock grew, so did the time required to maintain the flock. I figured there had to be a better way to a gather up and move the electric fence netting. So over the course of about three years and many prototypes I came up with this fence cart. It’s a simple easy to use cart and a real time and energy saver to boot.”
