Produce Spotlight: River Road Farm
River Road Farm is located just south of Ashland, near the town of Sanborn. Operated by Todd and Kelsey Rothe, the farm consists of 30 acres with about one acre currently in production.
River Road currently grows spinach, lettuce, mixed greens, turnips, radishes, carrots, beets, cabbage, peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers. They also have added a variety of berries to the mix. Todd and Kelsey plan to operate their farm in accordance with biodynamic principles and are looking at becoming certified organic.
As part of the Chequamegon Food Co-op’s new farmer agreement program “Produce Promises,” River Road will supply the Co-op with mixed salad greens, cilantro, and radishes. They may fill in with other crops as they become available.
