About Soil Sisters

For three days and with five unique components and involving numerous farms, the jam-packed, award-winning SOIL SISTERS culinary event celebrates Wisconsin’s family farms and rural life in and around the farming communities of Monroe, New Glarus, Blanchardville, Albany and Brodhead, Wisconsin, over the first full weekend of August. SOIL SISTERS is a program of Renewing the Countryside, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

From heirloom tomatoes to cottage food products, sheep to solar energy, bed & breakfasts to beef, the farmers and artisan food producers share a unique diversity of farm experiences showcasing the summer’s bounty.  Choose from a variety of activities including Farm-to-Table Dinner, plentiful on-farm “Green Acres” workshops, a Pizza on the Farm Fundraiser, and Bus Tour of Farms, plus area restaurants featuring specials throughout the weekend.

Starting on August 6 and running through August 8, 2021, SOIL SISTERS offers an immersive farming and culinary experience, led by women – the soil sisters -- committed to a healthy, fresh product or farm-made, artisanal food products and other items.  Some of these soil sisters are assisted by their husbands (aka "brothers") and/or their family.


Bring your coolers to stock up on fresh produce, wear your sun hat and kick back for a relaxing time on one, or all, of the farms.
