Wiskota Farm is a small certified organic farm near Webster, SD owned by Carl and Darcy Pulvermacher. It is made up of 67 acres, which is planted with corn, oats and alfalfa. The farm is also home to 55 beef cattle, which graze the nearby pasture. The name Wiskota is the combination of Wisconsin and South Dakota, since those are the places that Carl has farmed.
Carl graduated from the University of WI in 1974 with a degree in Ag Mechanics. Before moving to South Dakota Carl had a dairy farm in Wisconsin, producing milk for Organic Valley for 22 years and was even named a founding farmer. Carl has been farming in South Dakota for 10 years. His wife Darcy teaches elementary school in the nearby town of Waubay.
Carl wants to show people that what he is doing is simple and can be done by anyone. It would be ideal for someone who wants to get into farming, but doesn’t think they can.
