Today at The Tree Farm
Pick-Your-Own Vegetables and Flowers

Dane County, Wisconsin

The Tree Farm is Closed Today. We will open for vegetables again on Wednesday

For picking on Wednesday

Like that new potato flavor? To get that flavor, potatoes need to be dug while the tops are still green. After the tops die and the potatoes set their skins, they can be stored for winter. And they taste like potatoes from storage. Good, but not like new potatoes. The new potato flavor will soon be lost. Waiting not advised. New white potatoes
