About Us / Alternative Roots Farm History: Alternative Roots Farm is a certified organic family farm and orchard offering diversified produce through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Shares, Farm Shares, farmers' market and direct sales. ARF organic apples are available through direct sales, Apple Shares and wholesale. ARF is owned and operated by husband and wife team, John and Brooke Knisley; along with the help of our daughter, Emily.
The farm sits on 4 lovely acres in rural Madelia, Brown County--1.5 acres of cropland support vegetables, fruits and cover crops; 0.3 acre is planted into a native prairie buffer strip; about 1 acre is a young, developing orchard; and just over 0.5 acre is dedicated pasture for our heritage hogs. The rest of the land supports our home, buildings and pastured laying hens.
