The Friends of Schumacher Farm have a two-part mission:
Click here to learn how you can help with our 2015 Capital Campaign to create a Center for Rural History and Farm Machinery Museum. The Friends of Schumacher Farm invite you to step back in time to this 40-acre farmstead with a 10-acre prairie restoration. The original Schumacher family farm buildings were built in the early 1900's and the land was gifted to the Dane County Parks Commission in 1978. Schumacher Farm Park has been open to the public ever since.
- To preserve old-time rural lifeways of Dane County through education and preservation.
- To maintain a conservancy for nature study and recreational activities.
To fulfill our mission, The Friends host fun public events and educational workshops at Schumacher Farm Park with help from Dane County Parks, the WI Historical Society and local business sponsors. Events such as Heritage Fest and Halloween at the Farm, and hands-on workshops covering wood stove cooking and maple syrup making can be found on our calendar of events. Check for updates throughout the year.
