Country Blossoms Organics LLC
Country Blossoms Organics LLC is a family owned certified organic produce, garlic, and flower farm. The farm is located in Lomira, WI and has been in our family for the past 169 years. The farm had a long history of being a dairy farm before transitioning to an organic produce farm in 2014. After graduating from Oshkosh in 2004, I was in health care management and needed a change in my professional path. I presented an organic produce farm idea to my wife Jenny. After getting my wife’s blessing to proceed with my idea, I wrote a business plan and a 10 year vision plan to present to my parents, Joe & Doris. Together with my parents, Jenny, and my sister Jolina, we created Country Blossoms Organics LLC in 2014. I commuted from Whitewater to Lomira for the first couple years of the business while still working full time in my health care management position. In 2016, I left my health care management position and the farm became my full time job. In 2017, my family moved to Lomira in order for us to dedicate more time to the farm and our business.
Our main focus at Country Blossoms Organics is to provide certified organic produce to our customers. We provide home produce delivery to our customers in communities around the farm. We are currently delivering in Dodge, Fond du Lac, Ozaukee, Sheboygan, Washington, and Waukesha counties. We have 4.5 acres at our farm dedicated to our produce gardens. Some of our main products are many varieties of garlic, potatoes, green beans, cherry tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, squash, and lettuce. We are very active in our community, volunteering and serving in several local organizations. We have achieved most of our goals in my original 10 year vision plan, and we are excited about the future of our business.
