Around the Farm Table takes viewers through our farming landscape to shine a spotlight on Midwestern farmers and artisan food producers. The show is designed to uplift our understanding of sustainable farming practices through stories, recipes and information all delivered with a dose of fun, entertainment and original music. Our host, Inga Witscher, is a fourth-generation organic dairy farmer whose knowledge and disarming charm gets even the most quiet farmers to join in the conversation. Driven to seek out the best ingredients our region has to offer, each episode follows Inga as she gathers what she needs to produce a meal that celebrates our landscape and our appetites, Around the Farm Table.
A passionate dairy farmer, Inga Witscher and her husband Joe Maurer own and operate a small organic dairy farm near Osseo, Wisconsin. When she’s not setting up pastures for their cows to graze, milking the 15 Jerseys, making cheese with her father, or indulging her passions for gardening and cooking, Inga turns her attention to collaborating on narratives for Around the Farm Table. After growing up on her family’s dairy farm on the West Coast, making cheese on the East Coast, she is thrilled to now be in the middle of the country, home to truly happy cows, and a vibrant agri-culture all of which she loves to celebrate Around the Farm Table.
