The Cable Community Farm is a nonprofit organization dedicated to growing food and building community. Founded in 2013, our farm quickly became a hub of learning and growing in our community. There is a Community Garden, where gardeners rent garden plots for the growing season. In the Growing Together Garden, we grow food to offer at Cable’s Saturday Farmer’s Market, to give away at Free Food Mondays on site at the Cable Community Farm and to donate to the Cable Area Food Shelf. A Downtown Garden offers growing space to the residents of downtown Cable. In addition, we have a Community Orchard with thirty-five fruit trees. We host educational workshops and community events.
Past efforts have included the Theatre Flowers Garden, where flowers were grown for the Chequamegon Children’s Theater and a Community Chicken Coop which was tended by a group of people from the neighborhood. Other past projects included chickens and ducks raised for meat. We host educational workshops and community events. Lots goes on at the Cable Community Farm!
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.
