We will be meeting at Zinniker Farm

N 7399 Bowers Rd,

Elkhorn, WI 53121

We will discuss how the Zinniker Farm can thrive into the future.

  • One of the most pressing needs of the farm is labor ~ currently the farm cannot afford to pay someone a fair wage to work at the farm.

  • Like many family farms, the Zinniker Farm does not charge a sustainable price for the food they sell. Unfortunately they are competing with Big Ag on price which is a losing proposition.

  • Petra has been working off the farm on and off for the last 10 years to make ends meet.

  • Mark does not earn a living wage for running the farm.

  • Community is missing from the farm. When there are "farm days", who can help coordinate so there is not more added work for the Zinnikers.

  • Currently the Zinniker's children do not want to take over the farm, so there is no succession plan.

  • What will happen to the oldest biodynamic farm in the US after Petra & Mark stop farming?

  • This first community meeting is the first step in creating a new future for the Zinniker Farm.
