Farm Fresh Atlas

Think globally, but eat locally, using the Southern Wisconsin Farm Fresh Atlas!

Use the atlas to locate farms, markets and restaurant partners who supply fresh, area-grown produce and food products. Do note that many of the area growers welcome visitors with special events, u-pick options, hay-rides and tours.

The 2009 print edition of the atlas was initially released at the first Dane County Farmers' Market of the season on April 18. It can still be found at several university and Madison-area locations, including Steenbock Library.

Should you be looking for options, apart from the southern Wisconsin area, consult the sites for Wisconsin Farm Fresh Atlases or Local Harvest.

The Farm Fresh Atlas has been developed by the REAP Food Group in cooperation with the Dane County Farmers' Market, the Friends of the Dane County Farmers' Market, and the UW-Madison Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems.

Another useful local resource is the Madison Area Community Supported Agriculture Coalition (MACSAC) which offers a Google Map of local CSAs.
