Foodie Farmer Spotlight—Lauren and Kyle Rudersdorf


Foodie Farmer Spotlight—Lauren and Kyle Rudersdorf

We are excited to feature Lauren and Kyle Rudersdorf of Raleigh’s Hillside Farm in Brodhead, Wisconsin. The duo met as students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at UW-Madison and quickly fell in love. Fast forward six years post-graduation, and the Rudersdorfs have become an influential force in the local farming community. Lauren and Kyle focus on growing diverse and vibrant crops using transparent, sustainable practices. Raleigh’s Hillside Farm is certified organic and run on 4 acres of leased land. Lauren and Kyle have grown their CSA business from serving 8 to now 170 families. The couple also runs a food blog called “The Leek and The Carrot”, which features stunning photos of locally sourced recipes. The blog provides a fascinating glimpse into the life of passionate young farmers. Each recipe is accompanied by personal stories ranging from planting successes to simple, beautiful moments on the farm. Lauren shares in a recent post: “My leg muscles are burning. My nails have soil lodged under them. My wedding ring is a little less shiny than it was before and there is the tiniest bit of color and life back in my cheeks. All is right with the world.”
