Apple Tree Lane Bed and Breakfast

welcome

Welcome to Apple Tree Lane, a Waupaca,Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast. Located in an historic Victorian farmhouse, complete with gingerbread trim, the Inn sits on 7.5 acres in a park-like setting along 400 feet of beautiful Crystal River frontage.

We hope you visit our blog often!  We will share information and pictures with you on special happenings at the Inn and in the Waupaca area, recipes, events, seasonal fun, updates and much more.

Community Sustainable Agriculture (CSA) ~Whitefeather Organics




Nothing tastes better than fresh vegetables right from your very own garden--or is there?! We are so happy to supplement our small garden with organically grown produce from Whitefeather Organics, LLC, located in nearby Amherst.



Our barn at the Apple Tree Lane Bed & Breakfast is also a drop-off/pick-up spot for others who purchased summer shares from this local farmer!

Tony & Laura Whitefeather use crop rotation and garden separation to control pests. Large farm-based compost, grazing and intense cover cropping is used for soil nutrition. Their crops are harvested fresh for every delivery. Sustainability for community is the goal of their farm, and they keep that in mind in every aspect--where they get their energy, how they build their buildings and farming.


We enjoy opening our boxes upon delivery and plan our menu items accordingly. New perennials are incorporated each year including asparagus, mushrooms, berries and new vegies. I recently used the wild strawberries in our baked french toast and asparagus in our vegie quiche for our guests at the Inn, http://www.appletreelanebb.com/ and both were a hit.



We continue to learn about sustainable farming and healthy food choices as a part of a growing social movement that encourages all of us to share responsibility for the land, and where and how food is grown and produced.







Whitefeather Organics just expanded their share offerings, and provides newsletters and workshops. For more information, go to http://www.whitefeatherorganics.blogspot.com/
