James Lake Farms
Three Lakes, WI
James Lake Farms is a cranberry marsh located in beautiful northern Wisconsin. In 2006, John Stauner and his wife Nora purchased the marsh from their former employer, Northland Cranberries, Inc. The James Lake Farms team includes managers Tom Drozd, Ben Riker (John and Nora’s oldest son). The James Lake Farms team is also assisted by an excellent group of seasonal workers who help make their organic operation a success.
The marsh was originally started in 1950, and several of their beds date from this time. The property has gone through seven owners since, and has had a deep history of innovation. The goal of James Lake Farms is to continue this rich tradition by adopting organic growing methods. During the harvest season, which is typically in October, James Lake Farms sells fresh cranberries and offers harvest tours. They are very proud to grow and sell organically certified cranberries, and are always happy to welcome visitors to the farm to tour the marshes
