Hi! We are Kate and Tyler Rowe. We are the owners and operators of Burr Oak Gardens, LLC. Plants and all things growing have always interested us and led us both to the Horticulture Department at UW-Madison where we met each other in the Fall of 2006. We both graduated with a B.S. in Horticulture in December of 2008 and decided to take our love of plants, especially veggies, and pursue our dream of forming a farm. We believe that everyone should have access to locally grown produce and as farmers the ability to know the customer and form a solid relationship based on respect and understanding was key to our decision to start Burr Oak Gardens, LLC.
In 2018, Tyler started a handyman business, Rowe Handyman Services, LLC. We found that in order to purchase the farm under land contract from his parents, we needed an additional income stream and since Tyler is so great fixing things, a handyman business was a logical choice. Although you may see Tyler out in the fields cultivating or helping with the bean harvest, Kate now handles the day to day work of the farm.
To find out more about us as farmers, check out this link to our Facebook Page. In 2012 we were featured as part of the Go Local- Eat Local Campaign. The campaign focused on several restaurants that partner with local farms. We were lucky enough to be chosen by Monty’s Blue Plate Diner as their partner farm.
