Homegrown Farms

Homegrown Farms is a working farm located on the campus of Genesee Lake School. The students use this environment to learn, grow, and work.

The Genesee Lake School campus is 160 acres of lakes, farmland, and wooded Wisconsin countryside. We are located roughly halfway between Milwaukee and Madison.

Our surroundings offer a combination of rural living combined with easy access to city amenities. The Genesee Lake School campus provides a sense of place where our students re-imagine what’s possible and our staff help to guide them in strengthening their foundational abilities to relate, communicate, and think.
