About
Babbling Brook Acres

Babbling Brook Acres was a dream that came from Brook’s desire to get closer to her food and producing local food products. 

Brook has been a canner for more than three decades and loves to share her passion for canning and gardening.

While deciding to retire from her corporate job of 33 years, she started to take sustainable agriculture classes at the local community college and decided that a small farm would be the best fit for pursuing her dream of local food.

Wisconsin was home for most of Brook’s life, and with family nearby, she started by driving north to explore the country areas of this state. She discovered the Driftless region in southwest Wisconsin and was floored by its beauty.  Brook found the perfect little 10-acre farm nestled in a valley near Wildcat Mountain State Park and began her journey.

 

The farm’s name came from her nickname in high school — ”Babbling Brook” — as she can be quite the talker and can strike up a conversation with anyone.  With a running creek across the street, the name fit this beautiful place.

Starting by building a garden and rehabbing the farm, Brook spent a few years to get to this point.  The only problem with the house is the small kitchen, so obviously she wanted a custom canning kitchen on site.  Her farmer’s market business was good and she has many repeat customers but not the space to produce enough product.

The canning kitchen was completed in late 2021 and opened in the spring of 2022.

 

Besides being a farm store for her canning products, eggs and butchered pastured chicken, Brook teaches canning classes and offers the kitchen as a rental space.

Please come and experience the magic of the Driftless region and locally produced food.
