The land in Steuben has great potential. It is primed for full scale organic & sustainable food production, we just need more people that want to grow/raise the food. We are open to any farm management or complementary business proposals. Currently 120 acres are producing certified organic grains and hay.

Some of the ideas we would like to see implemented but have not been started include but of course are not limited to:

  • Pasture Based Animal Management
  • Permaculture & Biodynamic Agriculture
  • Beekeeping
  • Sustainable Building and Low Impact Living
  • Ethanol and Bio-fuel development
  • greenhouse to extend the growing season for vegetables and start plants
  • yoga
  • holistic health
  • herb gardens

Other considerations:

  • Alternative Energy
  • Integrated Recreational Activities
  • expand aquaculture – we have a licensed trout pond
  • Forest – resources and management
  • 30 miles away from Organic Valley Coop, La Farge, WI
  • Market development – transport from Madison and Chicago available on a weekly basis
  • Housing available
  • Training center – 6 large and small spaces
  • Camping
