The Cable Community Farm is a nonprofit organization dedicated to growing food and building community. Founded in 2013, our farm is quickly becoming a hub of learning and growing in our community. We have a Community Garden, where gardeners rent garden plots for the growing season, a garden called the Growing Together Garden, where we grow food for the Cable Area Food Shelf, the Theatre Flowers Garden, where we grow flowers for the Chequamegon Children’s Theater, and a Downtown Garden to serve the residents of downtown Cable. In addition, we have a Community Orchard with thirty-five fruit trees and a Community Chicken Coop that is tended by a group of people from the neighborhood, and a Community Orchard. We raise chickens and ducks for meat. We host educational workshops and community events.
The Cable Community Farm is located on Perry Lake Road in Cable, WI. First settled as a family homestead in the mid-1930’s, the farm sits on 35 acres of mixed hardwood forest and open pasture. It is located about one mile from town, making it easily accessible for local residents and visitors to the community. The buildings have been preserved and are in the process of being renovated to suit their new purpose: growing food for the community. By supporting the production of local food through sustainable agricultural practices, we hope to address issues related to hunger, health, the environment, and the resilience of our local economy.
