Serving the Coulee Region in a historic, urban farm setting through:
Clearwater Farm is a 100% volunteer-operated, non-profit organization.
Our mission is to demonstrate, teach, and advocate the sustainable use of natural, architectural, historical, and agricultural resources.
Public Programs & Events:
Clearwater Farm is operated by a dedicated group of volunteers. Our volunteers help with daily animal care, weekly grounds and garden maintenance, and special events. Due to the nature of our organization and varying volunteer schedules, we are currently unable to post regular open hours. However, we do offer a variety of ways for the community to enjoy Clearwater Farm throughout the year.
- The Kids Garden – Teaching over 100 children, at-risk youth, and adults with disabilities about healthy living from seed to table.
- Community Service – The #1 provider of service hours for individuals, schools, and other organizations in La Crosse County!
- Yoga on the Farm – Every Tuesday evening in the summer!
- Family Activities – Fun for all ages, including our annual Halloween Spooktacular!
- Wine and Beer Tastings & Christmas Tree and Wreath Sale – Annual fundraisers to help restore our 19th-century barn.
- Eagle Scout Projects
- School Field Trips
Clearwater Farm relies on membership dues to help feed and care for our farm animals and maintain our facilities. In exchange, members are provided with a family farm experience and discounts on special events. Members are welcome to visit the farm 7 days a week, walk the grounds, and say hello to the farm animals. While volunteering is not required of our members, many choose to go behind the scenes and participate in animal chores, gardening, and other hands-on farm activities.
- Volunteer Teams – Animal Care, Gardening, Education, Grounds Maintenance, and Special Events.
- Community Gardening – Members working together to produce organic food for their families and local food pantries.
- Rent Our Facilities – Clearwater Farm is a beautiful setting for a graduation party or outdoor wedding!
“Our students have grown a lot this year. They are showing more confidence, leadership, nurturing, and daily living skills. We feel very blessed to have made the connection with Clearwater Farm.”
