About Us

We are a small family farm located in the village of Arena about 30 miles west of Madison, on Hwy 14. During an Ojibwe Pipe Ceremony held on a neighboring farm we found out that a Native American (Singing Fawn) lived and cultivated crops on our property and we soon changed our farm name from Bonne Terre (french for Good Earth) to Singing Fawn Gardens.  We have a firm and strong background in biodynamic and organic agriculture.  Our passion for these practices motivates us to go the extra mile in producing the highest quality product for our family, friends, and customers to enjoy.

About Our Products

We farm according to the belief that healthy, delicious food is directly linked to the health of the soil that produces it. Healthy soil is teeming with microorganisms and organic matter, and when managed using various ecological, spiritual, and esoteric concepts derived from the agricultural lectures of Rudolf Steiner, we believe we can take the benefits of organic practices much, much further. A radish is not a radish is not a radish.

At Singing Fawn Gardens, it's the soil, not the produce, that we focus on, because we know that that if we maintain good soil, veggies full of nutrition and flavor will follow.

We also strive to keep the time between harvest and distribution as short as possible to ensure that our produce is consumed at or very near its peak of freshness.

We believe in transparency and education. We invite our customers to ask us how and why we do things the way we do (we will caution you here, that once Dad [Jim] gets talking about biodynamics, get ready for a lecture 101 style!).  We're always happy to have customers, friends, or travelers to stop by our farm to take a closer look at our practices.

Finally, we want you to know that we love to eat. Alone or with people we care about. Gussied up in a nice restaurant or dirt-smeared faces in the garden with strawberries picked fresh out of the field. We love food, have a passion for agriculture, and we love doing our best to produce good food for ourselves and our customers.
