Folkvangr Farms is a sustainable farming venture which offers fresh produce to local buyers and members of the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project it operates. The CSA is a "farm share" in which members buy shares of the yearly harvest at the beginning of the growing season and then partake of the produce at various times throughout the year. The contents of the distribution boxes contain different items as determined by seasonal harvest cycles. Karen Knudtson, co-owner of the venture, says the advantage of eating fresh produce from a farmer with whom the member has a personal relationship is beneficial on multiple levels.
Folkvangr Farms is currently located in Algoma, but is in the process of relocating to another Kewaunee County location near Luxemburg. Persons interested in becoming members of the CSA can do so by visiting the Folkvangr Farms website found at http://www.folkvangrfarms.com/.
