Hard Work And Vision
Lake Nokomis began and continues to be a family-owned and operated business. In 1973, Dave began as a hired hand on the farm located next to beautiful North Nokomis Lake, between Sugar Camp & Lake Tomahawk, WI. In 1977 after much hard work and vision, Dave purchased the farm naming it Lake Nokomis Cranberries. Since then, Dave has grown the farm from 50 to 320 producing acres, increasing the quality, quantity, and varieties of berries, as well as employee housing. Lake Nokomis is now managed by his youngest son, Michael.
In 2010, Dave expanded his business by purchasing the marsh his Father started in the 1930s in Stone Lake WI. The Stone Lake marsh is now managed by his eldest son Dave Jr., and has 60 producing acres with plans for future expansion.
Purchased in 2015, the Sampson Marsh in Three Lakes WI is managed by Bob Canada and is 60 producing acres.
The gift shop features gourmet foods, gifts, and our own award-winning Lake Nokomis wines. The onsite winery is producing wines made from our cranberries, we have 8 different wines to choose from. Free wine tastings are offered daily. Through the gift shop, we also offer free marsh tours.
The farm also produces Dave's Topsoil. Dave began selling topsoil in 1977 and has become one of the largest providers of topsoil in the area. It is true black dirt, local people love this dirt for gardening & landscaping projects. Contact us for more info!
