Warm Belly Brings The Farm To Madison

There’s a new business in town bringing a unique take on fall outdoor recreation. Conveniently located in Cottage Grove, Warm Belly Farm is focused on elevating fall agritourism from a pumpkin patch to a premium, immersive experience through its Fall Festival.

“We have a passion for growing local food as well as creating one-of-a-kind experiences,” says Warm Belly founder Francis Wisniewski, “The goal of Warm Belly Farm is for each person who visits to experience the feeling of full happiness.”

Reimagining fall fun Warm Belly began as a you-pick hydroponic strawberry and apple farm in Fort Atkinson. Based on the success of their first location, Warm Belly acquired the former America’s Best
greenhouse location in Cottage Grove in December of 2022.

“We don’t just have a corn maze, we made a corn maze surrounded by sunflowers with photo-ops and surprises,” says Wisniewski. “And we don’t just have snacks; we have a beer garden. We also actively look for ways to elevate each part of the experience.”

The Fall Festival at Warm Belly Farm will run Friday to Sunday each week from Sept. 15 through Oct. 29.
Warm Belly Farm will offer a variety of high-end experiences. Whether you are looking to sip cider with your friends, pick pumpkins, or decorate your home with fresh greenery, Warm Belly has something to offer. Tickets are $13 per visitor and offer specific time windows to ensure the farm remains at a comfortable capacity.

Warm Belly Farm will be offering the following at the Fall Festival:

  • Premium farm products grown on-site or at their Fort Atkinson location
  • Garden center with cut flowers and potted mums – perfect for decorating around the
  • Instagram-worthy photo and video sets throughout the farm
  • On-site beer garden
  • Convenient ticketed entrance, purchased in advance for a specific time of day to help
    prevent over-crowding
  • Rotating local food trucks and vendors for quality meal options
  • On-site donut truck making homemade sweets
  • Apple and candy cannons

“We are in the early stages of our plans for the farm. We’ve put countless hours into improving the site and aim to do much more with this space in the future,” says Wisniewski. “There is so much potential here, the team is excited to see what this fall brings and implement even more ideas for next year.”

Warm Belly Farm fall events will take place at 4311 Vilas Hope Road in Cottage Grove, Wisconsin.
