Rachel Henderson and Anton Ptak own and operate Mary Dirty Face Farm, a certified organic, mixed-fruit orchard near Menomonie, WI. Beginning in 2009, they established a 5 1/2 acre planting of apples, pears, plums, currants, gooseberries, raspberries, and blueberries. They also grow a few unusual fruits, some niche vegetables, and raise pastured livestock for direct sale. In selecting species and varieties, Rachel and Anton have focused on unique flavors, suitability to organic management, and diversity in marketing. They are excited to bring new flavors and nutrient-rich fruit to folks in the Menomonie area!
