Established in 2014 with family in mind. Buck set out to get back to his roots, farming.
Buck retired from Meade's Concrete in 2021 after 25 years.
In his youth, Buck was found on his Mom and Dad's dairy farm located on HWY 60 currently owned by the Zeman's. Buck's toddler hand prints can be seen today etched in the concrete of the Zeman shop (where his concrete work began).
Buck's love of farming began on his grandparent's farms, Roman & Nancy Hellenbrand's dairy farm in the Town of Lodi, and Carl & Jennette Kurt's dairy and pork farm in the Town of Dane. Buck recalls many memories of falling into the pig pen and being saved by Grandpa and the morning trek to the milk house to grab fresh milk for the family. His most favorite thing to do on the farm was bailing hay. He enjoyed this because it was a whole day event and the whole family participated.
Mom and Dad (Keith & Karen Kurt) had a big impact on how Buck learned to garden. Buck loved planting and working from the ground up. When living on the Kurt Farm, Mom and Dad had a garden that they would tend to and one would see them harvesting, caring and nurturing the plants that would feed their growing family. Canning vegetables was hard work but we did it together. Seeing where your food comes from and knowing the work put in to have fresh green beans or corn over the winter is a great feeling. Creating something from seed that produces something edible that nourishes the body and can feed people is wonderful.
We are proud to work hard to better our community, by providing a trustworthy product from people they know.
It keeps our family growing.
Without a supportive family Buck would not be able to return to his roots.
His amazing wife, Karen, supports him every step of the way and you can see their children, Skyler (Abby), Olivia and Trinity,
stepping up and lending a helping hand.
In 2022 Buck and Karen had little helpers growing pumpkins which included their niece, Claire and nephews Carter and Cayden.
Buck also gives a special thanks to Eric Hardel and his family.
"It honestly takes a Community."
What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way to buy local food directly from a farmer. You purchase a “share” and become a farm “member.” The farm provides a box of vegetables and/or other farm products to you on a weekly or bi-weekly basis throughout the growing season. Pick-up occurs on Saturdays at the farm from Noon-3pm. Special accommodations can be made just let us know.
Buck's Garden also has a choose-your-own option if you do not wish to participate in a share. We have a first-come-first-serve produce stand located across from the Lodi EMS building. Where we will have surplus fruits and vegetables available to purchase throughout the growing season.
People who want to participate in the CSA will sign up with Buck's Garden in advance of the growing season, this helps us plan for the season ahead and cover the initial annual costs of farm operation.
Along with farm-fresh food, other benefits include knowing your farmer does not use chemicals that impact the soil. Opportunity to visit the farm
CSA supports a sustainable farming system that connects farmers directly with consumers and ensures a fair price for farm products.

What Are Microgreens?
Microgreens are young seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs. Unlike larger herbs and vegetables that take weeks or months to grow, microgreens can be harvested and eaten anywhere from one week to ten days after leaves have developed. These tiny versions grow to a few inches and many different varieties.
Microgreens can be eaten raw and make excellent additions to smoothies, sandwiches and salads. Microgreens grow in soil and sunlight and take at a minimum of a week to produce leaves unlike sprouts. Microgreens are not sprouts. Microgreens might be small but they pack a more intense flavor than larger herbs or vegetables. A study by the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, analyzed 25 microgreens and determined, on average, they have four to six times more nutrients than their mature counter parts. While microgreens are nutrient-dense, they are not viewed as a substitute for regular vegetables due to the cost and volume you would need to eat.
