The Marathon County Hunger Coalition partners with two local farms located in Athens, WI to source fresh produce boxes, which are then given to multiple agencies to distribute in Marathon County. The Marathon County Hunger Coalition strives to improve food security for all individuals and families in Marathon County. Partnering with local farms and offering fresh, locally grown produce gives us a remarkable sense of pride. Through this model 80% of our funds stay in the community, and we’re making access to fresh farm produce easier!

Reddoor Family Farm
A red door is a welcoming symbol that spans many cultures and traditions. In addition to providing nourishing and delicious food, we invite you to be a part of our farm and feel welcome as you get to know your food, your farmers, and your neighbors.
Red Door Family Farm is a Certified Organic diversified farm in Athens, Wisconsin. We grow 10 acres of vegetables, fruits, and mushrooms for CSA, Farmers Markets, and local Restaurant sales. We are proud to serve our local food pantry, offering the freshest and most nutrient dense food available to those who need it most.
Look for us in restaurants, grocery stores, or at Wausau’s year-round farmers market, or ensure the choicest produce our farm has to offer by joining our CSA!
As farmers, we believe in making a food system that support rural communities, promotes health, and is sustainable economically and environmentally.
Our farm is rooted in organic production and philosophy working with natural systems and the local ecosystem to produce food that is healthiest for our family and our community.
We pride ourselves on having exceedingly clean, well packaged, and fresh produce for everyone who enjoys our food from CSA and farmers market customers to chefs, grocery stores and people who receive our produce food aid programs.
We deeply believe that all people, especially the most vulnerable, should have access to the most nutritious and fresh food.
